Dating girls with emotional baggage For cellphone free adult chat mass
Are you carrying emotional baggage in the form of unresolved issues (past/present), negative emotions, unhealthy mindsets, and the like?
If so, have you considered the impact of this on your life?
After all, His ways are proven and are worthy to be trusted (Psalm 33:4).
Have you spoken to Him about how you are feeling or what you are going through? I remember a time when I would tell God everything or trust Him for great things.
However, I left matters of the heart out of the equation. Was is that I thought my issues were trivial in comparison to what I perceived to be more important matters such as giants to slay, souls to be saved, revival in the church, or the like?
Or maybe I did not believe God could heal my wounded heart (though I believed in healing)? But the fact is that God cares about the big and little things in our lives. Therefore, consider adopting God-centred approaches for we cannot accomplish anything apart from Him (John 15:5).
Instead of trying to fill the void of your soul with precarious behaviours, why not allow God in?
Now, when it comes to dealing with our emotional baggage, many of us have a challenge because we either deny the obvious, pretend everything is ok or are blinded to our issues.
Of course, this had serious impact on my weight (to say the least). Sadly, if you have fallen into the trap of repeating the same patterns of behaviour hoping that the next 'fix' will end your problems, you have probably realised by now that they don't. When it comes to dealing with our issues, some of us leave Him out of the loop.Instead, they create further problems for you, further down the line. We look to ourselves to fix our issues, based on self-help notions. But let me ask you this, when last did you sincerely bring that burden or issue to God?Talking from experience, it takes more effort to keep up the facade than dealing with ones excess weight.Also, in attempting to deal with your emotional baggage, you may turn to food (comfort or binge eating), alcohol, work, money/spending, sex, drugs, etc just to keep your boat afloat. Eating was one of the ways I adopted to make myself feel better. In the long run, neither of these approaches helped me deal with my issues, as their effects were never lasting.
The truth of the matter is that your emotional baggage can render you ineffective in your home, office, church, community, etc.
Just like marathon runner, running with a backpack full of rocks, your baggage can have a severe impact on your ability to finish your race or even finish well.
