I’ve never been one to talk about my personal religious beliefs here on my blog, ChicOver50. After all, this is a blog about fashion inspo. But I really felt a need this morning as I was posting to Instagram…. in light of how the world has changed in just a matter of a month or so. It’s amazing how quickly the things have shifted in how we all think about things.
When people struggle they (for the most part I believe) turn to something higher, maybe God or maybe something else. For me I turn to God, or my Heavenly Father. My religious beliefs are sacred to me, and although I would share with anyone who wanted to know more specifically, I would never push it on to someone in any way.
I can remember a time many years ago, hearing a woman say at church, that she welcomed any struggles of conflict or trial in to her life, because this is when she grew the most. And I TOTALLY AGREE that through trials we definitely GROW! NO QUESTION!!! But…… I’m not the type that would pray for them. I’ve had enough in my lifetime.
I woke up this morning and felt so grateful that I didn’t have that feeling of dread that it was a Sunday. I LOVE Sundays now, and look forward to them. It used to be SO HARD for me to get through a Sunday because of the feelings of inadequacy and judgement and heartache. I couldn’t wait to get through a Sunday.
Since we’ve been at home due to COVID-19, and having church here instead of a chapel, I’ve felt so much gratitude and joy that I have a higher being who I know has helped me along my path! Whatever that is for you, whether you worship a God or whatever….. I hope that you will always feel that Sundays are special and should be different than the rest!
I know a bit personal here, and I hope I haven’t offended any. But that time for me when I was dealing with so much emotional pain, the only thing that got ME through was prayer. And prayer can be said in your heart anytime ANYWHERE!!!!! Thank you for letting me talk for a minute about my personal religious beliefs.
Take care friends! Have a wonderful week!!
This is a talk from one of my church leaders about how we WILL WIN THE WAR ON COVID-19.
