Welcome Blog Hoppers!
Today is our last day : ( Thank you all for stopping by and leaving your comments and signing up for the Blog Hop Giveaway draw and my thanks to those who are “following”…it has been fun and such a blessing to meet so many wonderful people and discover what others are writing about, how God is moving.
As I promised, here is my second book on the subject of how highly sensitive people experience life. If you find it a struggle to manage, you may find some guidelines that will help you rein life in to where you can manage it! Take a look.
codependency teachings and recovery groups tell you that you are responsible
for your own feelings. That no one else can “make” you feel a
certain way, rather, it is a fault of your own thinking patterns. It is good and
important to learn to take responsibility, but what if you have done everything
you can to be responsible for “your own stuff,” and still feel deep uncontrollable
feelings? What more can you do? Welcome to the ongoing quest to make sense of
life—to find meaning among the odd and confusing thoughts and emotions that seem
to come from “nowhere!”
people—burden bearers—can easily become overwhelmed by the continual flow of
sensory data. Your DNA drives you to “help,” but it seems like everyone else’s
agenda is worked on but never yours. You try to finish a task but are
continually interrupted because their problem needs attention now! How do you stop people and life
from overwhelming you? This book was written to help you rein life in so that
it becomes more manageable.
talk about how to sort through the confusing jumble of “stuff”
figure out what is your own feeling, your own sore growth spot, from all that
continually bombards you, and
is a burden God wants you to carry to the cross! Learning how to
discern these differences is a huge learning and essential if you are to thrive
as a highly sensitive Christian, rather than just survive.
If the enemy has
you by both ears it is difficult to hear God!
Learning to bring intuitive
responses to consciousness will be a process
Jesus is the master burden bearer—you and I
is learning to understand God’s language. You are learning
a language, a spiritual language—and language learning takes time. Learning,
means that you will not do it right the first time or all the time! And that is
okay! The world will not stop spinning, and those you love will not self
destruct if you “do not do it right” or miss it altogether.You will find help with that in this book.
spent your life being the family’s emotional dumping ground or steam vent, told
that you are too sensitive and you better toughen up, called crazy, a basket
case, etc…if you have been mocked, dismissed minimized or rejected, after a
while you begin to believe what others say, and agree. You begin to see
yourself the way others describe you. Your reaction is “to not want to be this
way” and to shut off the incoming emotion—if only you could! How you see and
feel about yourself has a great deal to do with how you come to God and what
you believe He can and will do because you
ask Him to! If you are to thrive rather than just survive as a highly
sensitive burden bearer you need to build or repair some inner structures. This
book will help you do that.
Learning to Live With The Gift focuses on the spiritual habits and
disciplines you can develop to cooperate with God’s plan for you. Many things
God does for us, but we can learn, mature and developing spiritually–that is our part.
time of preparation was a comfort to me. Like Queen Esther, you will be presented
to The King one day. This life is about learning how to walk, talk, live and
love like royalty. And, if you are highly sensitive, burden bearing may be the
spiritual workout regimen that molds and sculpts you into a striking
resemblance of Jesus. My prayer is that in reading this book you will
understand yourself better, that it will help you be kinder to yourself, and provide you with
specific and practical things you can do as you cooperate with God to heal and
restructure your inner being! Some chapters lend themselves to more in-depth
meditation and personal work with the Lord. For those chapters, I designed
worksheets which you may download free from my website: www.fromgodsheart.com (Click Downloadables tab.)
I learned about burden bearing. What a relief that was! Life does not have to
be burdensome. You do not have to endure life as a joyless existence, to hang
on until eventually God calls you home! Be encouraged—there is hope and
meaning. Jesus will take you at your word when you ask Him to be in charge of
your sensitivity. That puts Him in the driver’s seat, so buckle your seat
belts! He doesn’t slow down on the learning curve—and it is a doozie! Hang on
and enjoy the ride!
