“And this is the message[the message of promise] which we have heard from Him and now are reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all[no, not in any way]. [So] if we say we are partakers together and enjoy fellowship with Him when we live and move and are walking about in darkness, we are [both] speaking falsely and do not live and practice the Truth [which the Gospel presents]” 1 John 1:5-6
What does walking in the light look like to you? To me it looks like someone who treats others with respect and shows kindness to everyone they meet. Sometimes, I just have to break things down to the smallest bit in order to not get overwhelmed. So, I ask myself what is one kind thing I can do for myself today and what is one kind thing I can do for another.
I find that most people who spend time in the dark are depressed or going through a difficult time. Even though it may be easy to join someone on their misery train, it is better to listen and understand and pray because dark days don’t have to last. Also, it is better to give that person encouragement and support so that you don’t fall into your own misery.
I think when people are able to express their pain and darkness, they want understanding and they want support. Otherwise, they would probably keep it to yourself. Most people are not walking around in the “Woe is me” Olympics. One way I stay out of the woe is me path is by focusing on the positive in my life. Most times, the good in my life outweighs the bad. So the more I focus on positive, the more positive situations I find myself in.
I did my first meditation session last night(trying to get on a schedule) and it made me go straight to sleep. I wonder what it is about meditation and sleep. Does the brain automatically turn off and just go to a peaceful place? If that is the case, I bet it could work wonders for kids.
I’m trying to build more productivity into my life. So I found an app to help with internet productivity. I also deleted Twitter from my phone. Now the next step will probably be deleting facebook from my phone as well. I have decided to limit my manual twitter posting to once a day. I also limited the number of tabs I have open at once(I’m a tab queen).
What are some things that you like to do to increase your productivity/time management?
I hope you have a great day 🙂
