It was a break through of a day!! and #9 of 10

Can I just say that everyone should have a therapist?!! I'm all figured out today. What a feeling. It's amazing. I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but hey, at least we've figured out why I think the way I do.

I was told last week that there was something "deliciously bitter" about my thoughts and anxiety. It's been driving me crazy all week wondering what in the world is so delicious about it. NOTHING!! I couldn't wait to hear what it was. So, I played along today until I dared ask if this was the "deliciously bitter" part? She said yes. I was flabbergasted. I quickly told her that she was awesome, that I loved her, and I continued to giggle.

I couldn't believe that she could figure me out.

Well, if you ever want me to talk your ear off, or you need an ear to listen, give me a call. It's amazing. It's quite personal but I'd share.

I'm now up to seventeen faithful thoughts that I've now recorded on my phone. I love it. Have you ever inserted your name into a scripture as though the Savior was speaking to you? It changes the meaning a lot. That's what I'm supposed to do.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7

I find so much comfort in that scripture. It makes me wonder why I let my thoughts run wild until I'm anxious, when I know that they don't come from a loving Father in Heaven. He's given me power, love and a sound mind. All things that my troubled heart needs.

Inserting names into scriptures... it really makes all the difference!
