Seeking Peace & Joy

IS an ORPHAN SPIRIT KEEPING you FROM EXPERIENCING TRUE PEACE AND JOY?

Many people that experience anxiety, depression, and panic or just a deep void have a common thread in their lives. That thread is a difficulty connecting with others, a general feeling of uneasiness, possibly a struggle with self-worth. There may be a dysfunctional arena that you dance around, wanting love and acceptance but not being quite able to step into solid healthy relationships because of some insecurities that may be buried deep within. When 2 people with this void in their lives come together there could be fireworks! Anything from, simple sorrow and sadness to anger or fits of rage may manifest in the relationships.
This stems from a fear of rejection or abandonment. This weight masks the individual’s true identity and true purpose from shining forth. Because they identify first and foremost to the hurt the sorrow and the pain that they feel weaves through their tiny bits of happiness.
Some pull inward, but many of these broken individuals are hard to spot. They may seem very much in control, very much well appointed. Let me clarify, to fill the void in their lives many will “overcompensate” in other areas of their life. They may do so their possessions, their activities being involved in anything that could be noticed or envied by others, some try to attract attention by the way they dress, the way they carry themselves. Many times, their way of standing out involves doing things that may attract negative attention wild clothing many piercings, or tattoos. They are trying to gain a sense of peace by things, what they do to their bodies, drugs, and alcohol often comes into play, they may gravitate towards others with the sense of rejection a way of fitting in but it does not fill the void.
Yes, there is a thing called separation anxiety, associated often with infants and young children. You can also see in this age group failure to thrive. As this group matures, they can start to strive to get their own way and even if now in a loving caring environment it leads to competition with those that can offer what they need a real sense of belonging and caring. In other words, peace joy and contentment.
Often inadvertently they thrust their past experiences with rejection in front of even potentially healthy relationships. They FEAR and do not want to again risk the potential for further hurt. They often feel they must control others and their situation in order to lift themselves.

Seeking Peace & Joy

A POND AND A GARDEN HOSE

Place a garden hose flowing constantly into the dirty, stagnant, smelly, green water of a small pond. As long as the water is flowing the water coming out the hose is clear. If the clear water continues, slowly it will replace the old greened water and the water will start to clear. There may still be some cleaning up to do but you will be able to see the bottom of the pond you now know that there is a job that can be accomplished. You gain hope that the pond can once again be clear

However, if you turn the water off, let it drain disconnect the hose and submerge into the pond same garden hose which brought clarity once submerged into the pond will begin to take on the dirty green water.

If your life is like the old pond water and you want to clear it up to be able to live happily and purposefully. What are the chances if you do not connect to a source of those living the life you desire that things will change?

Anyone care to comment?

QUESTION?
Why do certain people seem to struggle more, or seem to have a harder time overcoming stress, worry, addictions, toxic or improper relationships…

Biblically speaking, we are equipped to fight the battle that Jesus won in His earthly ministry. We are designed to be GIVERS, to be examples of the life of Jesus.

We were not equipped to fight or overcome those things of the world. The world generates TAKERS, those who live life primarily for themselves and their pleasures.

It is important to know that the way you think proceeds the way you feel which will control the way you behave. Those who allow themselves to be weakened by looking to the world for answers are opening themselves to the familiar spirit. A spirit that is at home in the ways of the world.

This spirit has subtle ways of sneaking in and changing the way you think. It creeps into your conversations, those you associate, your daily choices. You see familiarity causes you to look to your past and recreate it. It looks to cause you to idolize things that were and remain harmful that will lead you away form the purpose of your life.

You need to change your thoughts; to change your behaviors, to be able to change or transform your life where the door is slammed shut on the familiar spirit.

Ephesians 2:2 tells us that Satan enters children of disobedience. If you live a lifestyle or surround yourself with that which is unhealthy the door is opened for Satan to enter. And of course, when he does you become deceived evil appears good and good appears evil Isaiah 5:20.
