Simplifying Your Life


I recently bought a book by Joyce Meyers, "100 Ways to Simplify Your Life." While I'm not yet through all one ways, I certainly say that I'm picking up quite a few nuggets along the way.

The one I am focusing on today is that of getting enough rest. For starters, you are no good to yourself or anyone else if you are operating on "E" and are burned out. One way to have a simple life is to make sure you get enough rest. I've always had a hard time with this one because I always feel I have to work and work until things are completed and then on top of that I suffer with a "I must get it perfect" spirit.

So, I've committed to simplify my life by getting enough rest going forward. Just as the Heavenly Father, God took one day to rest, it's wise that as human beings we do the same.

Alternative Pain Relief


Pain in any form can be stressful and at times cause you to curl up in a ball so to speak so that you can't even function. Arthritis, post-surgery and injuries all cause pain at some point or another. Most of the time, we rely on pharmaceutical drugs to ease that pain. Many times pain can be relieved without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.

While Magnetic Therapy is not a new form of alternative pain relief, it's certainly become increasingly more popular. People are tired of experiencing the side of effects from pharmaceutical drugs and are turning to more natural forms of pain relief.

Magnetic Therapy, also termed Magnet Therapy is a safe and natural method of alternative pain relief that is facilitated by applying magnetic fields to the body for therapeutic purposes.

I had foot surgery a few months ago and began using magnetic therapy. I was very pleased with the results. The inflammation and burning sensation I was having was eased within minutes of applying magnets. I definitely recommend this form of alternative pain relief.

No Rest for the Weary

The word "recession" is nothing new these days. Companies are laying off thousands due to the economic crisis. At the company I work at, upper management received a cut of their salaries by 10%. Truly the belt is being tightened all around. Some thought that it was a national crisis but it's quickly become an world crisis. Stress is at an all time high and people are scurrying to find quick stress relief.

I submit to you that while all of this is going on, where is your hope? Do you place your hope in the past? the foretold future? Is your hope in your bank account? Is your hope in our new president? Where do you go to for stress relief? All of these sources are subject to error. Is God your hope? Is He your source of stress relief? He's the only source of true hope and He never fails. If you put your trust in Him today, you will not only obtain relief from stress but you can feel safe and secure that while there is no rest for the weary, "He gives His beloved sleep."

Anticipation gets the better

My my, what anticipation can do to you. I had a Spa Party this weekend and was anticipating that people may not show. I allowed worry and fear to get the best of me. Granted, not nearly as many people showed up that I would have liked but all in all it turned out to be very profitable and fun.

So, this is just a short lesson for all you worriers out there. Don't let anticipating things get you to a place of worrying. Worrying causes stress and it's not worth it, especially when chances are that things will turn out just fine.

I will be posting pics of the spa party shortly on my other blog http://deadseastorebyrv.blogspot.com

"What are you Made of?"

Everyone encounters adversity at some time or another. We live in a fallen world, fallen from God's original purpose and plan for mankind. When Adam & Eve sinned, sin entered the world and creation has been experiencing adversity ever since. Of course, God had a plan for redemption but that doesn't mean that we will not encounter adversity in our lifetime.

How do you face adversity? Rather, do you face adversity? Standing in the face of adversity, Paul from the Bible stated, "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

How you respond to life's trials and tribulations will tell you what you are made of. If you run and cower and stress out in the face of adversity, then you need to reevaluate who you are and what you are made of. Children of God (born again ones by the Spirit of Christ), do not ever have to run from adversity. We have a Blood bought covenant promise from Father God to have help available in a time of trouble. Father has placed within His children a resiliency and the ability to live victoriously over EVERY situation and circumstance. What are you made of?
