Are you serious? This has happened to me? What next? Then "The Blues" set in…
I think we all have been there for one reason or another! For example, someone hurt your feelings, the job offer didn't come through or the car broke down and you don't have the funds in the bank to take care of it! The list can go on and on.
Let's take a look at what can cause the blues? When the immune system perceives a “shock”, it literally doesn’t know the difference between physical or emotional. The immune system is designed to protect our body from damage whatever the cause.
In the energetic health realm, you don’t know what comes first, the physical or emotional . The immune system will still turn off switches if it becomes alarmed that too much is being put on your system. It will manifest in one of two ways. Hence, physical or emotional When your “switches” have been kicked off because of that shock, then “dis-eases” will be forming in you body. Whether emotional or physical, because the immune system has to “store” it somewhere until it can determine WHERE to send it! And I don't care what situation you're in, storing clutter will suck the energy out of you!
I don’t care who you are. We’re all susceptible to “THE BLUES”. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a man, woman, saved or unsaved. Things can be going good for you this week, but then next week…who knows?! We’re going to talk today about 4 steps to help prepare us for the bad times & controlling the blues as much as possible.
First of all, take a look around you. If there’s one thing that is consistant in life~ it is: Nothing stays the same. Life is GOING TO HAPPEN. It is a good idea to make up your mind to open up 2 emotional savings accounts. One for feast (good) & one for famine (bad)! This is just life. It’s guaranteed good things are going to come & bad things are going to come, too. The Bible tells us this in is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”.
We don’t like to think about the hard things that we all may have to deal with. But since we will inevitably have to, we need to build ourselves up so that it won’t be such a shock on our systems when something bad happens like losing a job, losing your home or God forbid, losing someone you love. All which can easily end in what we call “The Blues”.
Here are 4 steps to help deal with “The Blues”.
1) Avoid faulty thinking & rest in God. You can’t make people do what you want them to! Only God can do that! Read Phillippians 4:8 “…whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report….think on these things. “ (Modified by me ).
2) Know God is with you. Stay in the “now” & just take it one hour at a time to work through it. Don’t spend your time blaming other people for your problem. Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Whatever “this” is~ may not be about YOU! It may be to change something in someone else’s life! It may hurt like everything & you may just have to give it up & tell God He will have to handle it because you’re too weak. Then let Him.
3) Memorize your Bible verses ahead of time. Be prepared. This means to get your toolbox ready before the car breaks down. John 14:1 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”
The only way we can know God is to know HIS WORD. So get in there & read your Bible! The Bible is your sword to fight our everyday battles! Don’t wish you knew what to repeat in your heart AFTER the attack has hit!
4) Don’t blame yourself for what you perceive as a “weakness” in yourself. Like:
a) “Why am I not stronger?”
b) “Why does it seem as if everyone else handles this better than I?”
c) “If I have questions, then that must mean my faith is weak!”
Simply put. No. It doesn’t mean all these things! In I Kings 18, Elijah was victorious in proving that Baal was a false god! He demonstrated the boldest, wildest demonstration of impossible things while God rained down fire from heaven completely burning up a water soaked alter! Next thing you know, a little ole’ peaved Jezebel woman told him she was gonna have some big bad men find him & kill him and HE RAN FOR HIS LIFE! From HER!! NOT from hundreds of Baal prophets! Then told God to just kill him. He was tired of life!
So, don’t think that God still isn’t walking with you right by your side the whole time you’re “down in the dumps”. The promise is: “This too shall pass”. Next month or next year may be your “feast time”! Just get through your valley right now until you reach the other side!
