My quote for the day.....
"Tell the negativity committee that meets inside your head to sit down and shut up. "
I really don't know who said this...I just read it somewhere....no matter how spiritual I want to become I am always human and like everyone else I have a "negativity committee" that loves to have meetings in my head. When life is going badly, they have frequent, loud meetings that I seem to encourage. When life is going good. they have "but what if..." meetings and if I listen to what is presented, I seldom enjoy the good. In fact my attendance to their agenda makes what "good" I had go away!
God does not create this "committee," I do. It is created out of fear, and lack of faith. Prayer, time in silence spent with God, spiritual reading, communal worship of God all combat this nuisance but I have to take charge to make it go away.
Today there was no reason for a "meeting" but one went on in my head anyway. When I realized what was going on I said, "SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!" The "committee" disappeared. This made me feel really good!...in fact, I am still feeling good... Thank you God...
I need to do this more often...how about you? Is there a meeting being held in your head?
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
