Let’s Agree to Disagree, Please?

I shared a couple of thoughts in a previous post but I would like to share some more……

What does it feel like to “have the whole world” on your shoulders.

I have no idea…..

I can’t even imagine….

This whole situation of people bashing the Olympic gymnast for withdrawing is infuriating.

As a suffer of mental illness I know what it’s like to not have it all together, to feel pressure to “snap out of it.” (which by the way is the WORST thing you can say to someone with mental health issues.

I can’t say I know what is going through Biles’ head but if she feels she needs to take a rest mentally then LET HER TAKE IT!

Sure, people all over are complaining that she “let our country down” and that she’s “selfish” (are you kidding me with that??) is SO. VERY. MUCH. INFURIATING!

Maybe she was feeling fine when she first got to Tokyo. Maybe she wasn’t. WHO KNOWS BUT HER! And for her taking a stand and backing down is definitely worth praising. If she isn’t mentally prepared for all those moves, she could really hurt herself! Getting “lost in the air” is definitely something I would think is dangerous! She could land wrong and really injure herself.

If you don’t agree with me, that’s totally fine! Seriously, it is! We are all entitled to own opinion.

I hope I’m not coming across as sharp or rude. That’s not my intention.

BUT, I am an advocate for mental health awareness and I am totally #TeamBiles

What a Day That Will Be!

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul

Matthew 16:24-26

Taking up our cross means to give up our selfish ways and follow God’s will for our lives.

It’s a daily thing. We must do it daily. We’re going to have struggles along the way, Jesus promises us this in John 16:33,

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Catch that last phrase? “Take heart! I have OVERCOME the world!

One day it won’t be like this. One day we will be free from it all and will be with our Lord and Savior for eternity! What a day that will be!!

There is coming a day
When no heartaches shall come
No more clouds in the sky
No more tears to dim the eye
All is peace forever more
On that happy golden shore
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be
When my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face
The One who saved me by His grace
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me to the Promised Land
What a day, glorious day that will be
