In order to create a new reality, you have to empty yourself of all or most of  the troubles that consume your life. There are many ways to do this one of which is to talk to a friend who is trustworthy. Another is to write down all that seems to occupy your mind, leaving  it on paper rather than allowing it to play over and over again like an old tape recorder.  Learn to forgive and forget past hurts and start moving forward. Finding a way to deal with that which steals your joy is crucial to living a life of fulfillment and joy.


We all have moments in time where life gets the best of us and we just want to shout it out and vent in order to release our frustrations. I have been there many times dealing with different circumstances, however, sometimes you have to let it out, turn it over to the lord and keep going. Don’t allow anything or anyone to keep you from living God’s intention for your life. Getting angry and expressing your vexation is not a sin, providing you release it an appropriate manner. How you choose to deal with what troubles and boggles your mind will ultimately define how God views your behavior. When bad things happen, it may be an opportunity for growth. Stay the course, pause, learn to ask yourself what is God teaching me through this experience? Keep moving forward choosing to walk in wisdom and love.

  1. You are so right! Journaling, praying and talking to a close friend help me. I’ve also discovered that since I’ve learned to share more on my blog posts ( just in the past week or so) that has helped too!

  2. Very insightful post and the passage from Ephesians 4:26 ➖ are words we should all try to live by… “Be angry and do not sin” do not let the sun go down on your wrath.

  3. Thank you for this very important reminder Pat! It’s so difficult when we are in the midst of our hurt, anger, sadness, sometimes it seems impossible to see beyond where we are at that moment to be able to grab hold of God’s promises. Like you say though, talking with a trusted friend or writing feelings out can be very helpful in freeing ourselves from the burden of negativity.
