A time to every purpose

I'm suffering.
Everything seems so difficult right now.

There have been times when I've been weary with the mundaneness of day to day life.....and there have been times when it has seemed that I have been blessed with such good fortune......and other times, still, where grief and tragedy seemed to overwhelm me......and then....times like these....where my problems are not disastrous or earth shattering...but I feel bombarded with disappointment and frustrations.

It's sometimes difficult to trust that this, too, shall pass....even though....everything that I've ever experienced has.....
maybe....what is difficult is the uncertainty....of what will be...after this has passed.

To everything there is a season, and
a time to every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born, and
a time to die;
a time to plant, and
a time to pluck up
that which is planted;

A time to kill, and
a time to heal;
a time to break down, and
a time to build up;

A time to weep, and
a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and
a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and
a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and
a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and
a time to lose;
a time to keep, and
a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and
a time to sow;
a time to keep silence, and
a time to speak;

A time to love, and
a time to hate;
a time of war; and
a time of peace.

KISS

Back to a basic few.

Pick 2 things that helped the most from the past.

Possible you familly dcotor can medicate the hell out of you, just for today, for survival.

At times too much recovery, makes a person think they must be strong for others. Take a moment to let the tears flow for your own mental well being.

No one has the right to tell you what to do, these are but suggestions to get get you brainstorming on what might help your needs just for today.

Please take care, you are to important to so many.

The flame of my candle burns strong for those most in need.

I understand what you're going thru Peg. I'm going thru the same thing myself. I got laid off from my job and my wife is supporting us financially right now. My future is unclear. I just want to write and help people with gambling addiction but as they say, "You still gotta pay the bills." It's not easy finding our spiritual side. Somehow though we'll bridge that gap and make it thru because that is what miracles are for.
I'll keep you in my prayers.
