{Calgon take me away}

Have you ever just had one of those moments when your schedule is full, the busyness of life seems to be at full speed ahead, your mind is going in a thousand different directions, your heart is filled to the brim with words but yet no words come and you murmur the words "Calgon take me away".....

(Newsflash...they lied on that commercial)    I know because I've tried it!  

For me when those moments, sometimes days...come upon me I know that I must carve out some time to be alone, to tune out the world, and to listen! I listen to myself! YES, I talk to myself....now that I have admitted that I feel better! Sometimes I answer myself because at least I hear what I want too! Anyone else willing to admit that you have the same problem?????

A lot of times I grab a cup of coffee and I begin to doodle....and I'm not a good doodler! NO ART LESSONS FROM ME!


 But most oftentimes I go to the Word of God. It's there that I find comfort. It's there that I find peace. It's there that I find strength. It's there that I find the answer to my questions.



And sometimes...I just simply write....Sometimes I don't know why I write...or whom I am writing to or for...but I write....


But it's then that I see the handiwork of God flowing in my life to the depths of my heart and maybe to yours! 


Hugs and Blessings, Cindy

  5. I'm pretty sure that everyone needs their ME time...I have a fantastic bedroom...large with one wall of bookshelves..full of books...I close my door (Mr Sweet is so nice to leave me alone for awhile...he goes out to his shop) and I read...or blog...or watch movies...or write to my mama that's been gone for 30 years...I have HER olden journal so I've told her about all her Great grandchildren...about days I'm happy and days that I feel sadness...and always...ALWAYS... to my Heavenly Father for joy and comfort...

  7. Beautiful prayer my sweet friend and oh the darkness is working over time in our precious world. Some of my best prayer, meditation and thinking time is when I walk. I walk and talk and talk. I talk to the Lord, my Mother in heaven, myself and to the sky. I know that my prayers are heard and when I return home, my heart is lighter.
    Thank you for inspiring me through the word of God, my dear friend.

  8. Oh, yes, dear Cindy. I talk to myself too at times! At least I've met one other fellow sufferer! LOL Lately I've had a hard time being still long enough to sit and read my Bible. My attention span lately has been the size of a knat. The busnyness of life can sure get to us! Have a blessed day.

  12. When we are restless, yes we should go to God. And I think that when you/we are talking out loud or in our mind, we are talking to God. Keep talking, it's good for the soul.

  17. Whew, this post reflects my life these days! I have so much on my plate I often feel overwhelmed but my daily devotionals help keep me going on as well as keeping a list. The list gives me a plan and my devotion time helps to keep everything in the Right perspective. Thanks for this post! Good to know I'm not alone!! Have a great weekend, Sweet Cindy!

  20. Thanks for this post. So true.
    I talk out loud sometimes to keep things straight. I think the enemy enjoys thought fragments that keep us frustrated and spinning our wheels instead of accomplishing a complete task.
    You are a sweet encourager and example.

  21. I really need to take more time to pray and journal. I have been overwhelmed lately and that is the first thing that falls off of my list, yet it's probably the most important one...keeps me grounded. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Thanks Kim for stopping by. I just read recently that sometimes we lack in our prayer life because it seems to be another thing on our to do (as bad as that sounds). But the truth is...our to-do lists wouldn't be so daunting at times if we had of prayed first.
