Trying…Again

“Trying…Again.”

“MY heart is overflowing with a good theme:

I recite my composition concerning the King;

My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”

Psalm 45:1

Gratitude 13,763: “Writing…again.”

I just have to. When the Lord asks you to do something, there’s just no way around it. If your eyes have fallen upon these words, they are for you. I have prayed for that.

The Scripture that precedes my words describes the calling. From an overflowing heart I write. Everything we do or see others do comes from an overflowing heart. A heart overflowing with grace or grief, good or evil, love or hate, fullness or hunger. Hearts overflow and spill out with what they contain. What will yours spill out today?

The alternative is to attempt to hold back what your heart contains. Methods may vary. Believe me, I know. And some not at all bad. Avoiding people and situations that cause you to spill out the bad stuff can be helpful until you’re ready to constructively handle them. Some can be quite bad though. It can be destructive to try to numb your heart with substances or experiences that are fake or counterfeit. It can be harmful to isolate yourself from friends or family for fear of burdening them or revealing a false image or reputation you are trying to protect.

It can be hard to try again, when your past experiences have been unsuccessful to say the least. Try again anyway friend. Prepare your mind by taking it to a higher level of thought. One led by His Word.

“Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there by any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Philippians 4:8

I’ve been knocked down this year, we all have, but don’t stay down for the count. Rise up! It starts when we change our minds. When we change the way we think. Let’s dwell on things that are
