As I live and grow one of the things that I've noticed is that when I become conscious that something is not beneficial to my life I must take action. It doesn't take as long to recognize as it used to, but it does require an introspective approach. Some people learn different techniques to get a "check-up from the neck-up", some never do and others are "ok" with themselves as they are. When I find that a habit or behavior is causing me problems I make the effort to change. It is usually at this point that thing becomes the strongest. Its like the darkest hour is just before the dawn. I always associated this with negative things. I found that as I heal from my wounds the sting can be the most severe. When I decided to really, really make Jesus my Lord and savior I thought things would get better. They did, but there have been growth pains. I've reached another epiphany in my prayer life. I've learned to pray in tongues. It has been liberating to me physically, mentally and spiritually. I don't have confine my thoughts to the rules of language. My heart, mind and soul do the interpretations. I catch a rhythm, cadence and beat that connects to where I am comfortable in the moment with myself and with God. It is still something that I must practice. Though I return to my old way of praying from time to time I must return to the free-flow of the tongue I've been granted in order to keep the new-found freedom alive. It is not a suggestion to anyone. I don't use these forums to challenge or match wits with anyone. I am merely sharing the growth that I am experiencing through the ever increasing power and faith in a living God, through His Son, Jesus. "Success comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it."
