I remember a time when I prayed about everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING. And I also remember a time when I barely prayed at all. But when it comes to decision making, sometimes praying about it isn’t the answer. [Read more…]
Have you ever known anyone who seemed like they, either woman or man, were not happy unless they had some mess going on? It was like drama energized them? These people literally feel blah inside unless they are involved in some mess.
Some people just seem to be wired that way. Some people seem to think having drama gives attention and purpose to them and their lives. And some people grew up with drama, so they don’t know any other way. You may hear all of these people saying they want peace, or they just want to get along or have a better relationship, but their addiction to drama won’t let them have peace.

You’re upset. You’re hurt. You’re angry and annoyed. Heck…you’re downright furious…livid even. And you act like it; yelling and screaming at the top of your lungs…acting like a crazy woman. You argue back, interrupt and interject. You got your finger pointing, spit flying, neck rolling…. You aren’t even making any sense. Or, you’re crying hysterically because…he left. Or he cheated. Same thing. Snot leaking down to your top lip, you think you’ll never love again, or be made a fool of again, or give it up so easily again. You start to eat–or stop eating completely. You sleep all the time–or don’t sleep at all. You don’t know if you are coming or going.
