I was at work a few days ago, and was in a weird mood. I was gong through a lot of emotions about a friend I stopped talking to a while back, and it manifested itself in me not being my normal, bubbly self. ⁣ ⁣ Someone asked me why I wasn't acting like my normal self, and I said, "I don't know," laughed, and then cracked a joke. The reality was, I knew exactly why, but it wasn't something I wanted to bring up at the moment. ⁣ ⁣ Then, I said, "If you want my normal self, I can just pretend, I'm sure you won't be able to tell a difference."⁣ ⁣ I said this with joking inflection, but it really stuck with me, because in reality, it was true. Something that I learned to be good at because of my struggle with porn is being able to play happy and content when you're really broken inside, and even though my situation is somewhat different now, the behavior is not.⁣ ⁣ I fin myself burying things, and in exchange, throwing on a face or a personality that matches what it is I want to feel, rather than trying to get there healthier ways. ⁣ ⁣ Fortunately, I don't think I'm alone out there, and I think we all experience this in one way or another.⁣ ⁣ DOUBLE TAP if you relate to this, and drop down in the comments if you've done this too!!!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #christian#christianwriter #christianblogger#christianfiction #christianfictionwriter#nature #naturephotography#newmexicophotographer#writersofinstagram#writerscommunity #jesus #jesusfreak#godlymen #livingforjesus#faithblogger #christianlife#christianlifestyle #overcoming#godsgrace #godsfaithfulness#overcomer #encouragment#goodnewsfeed #walkbyfaith #selflove #selfcare #newyearnewme

• HE IS RISEN • Did you know that Easter was first celebrated by the Jewish people to remember God's faithfulness when he brought them out of Egypt? Years later, we celebrate God's faithfulness to us as we remember when He gave His only son, Jesus, to die on a cross so that we could have a relationship with him again. - Where is His faithfulness in your life ? What are you celebrating? #kkint #wearelinking #Godsfaithfulness

"Let my teaching fall like rain⠀ and my words descend like dew,⠀ like showers on new grass,⠀ like abundant rain on tender plants."⠀ (Deuteronomy 32:2, NIV)⠀ ⠀ Happy Spring, friends! Let's remember that every perfect gift—the warm spring sun, the first tender buds, the soft April showers—is from our Heavenly Father (James 1:17).⠀ ⠀ #Spring #WomenTogether #EveryPerfectGift #Thanksgiving #HappySpring #GodsFaithfulness

Do we realize that anything we ask God is ours? It comes in his time and his form. What comes is what is best for us, because he sees the whole picture, not just what comes next. Be specific in your ask and when your time comes you will be blessed! . . . . . #godsfaithfulness #dailyverses #dailydevotional #ilovejesuschrist #godisgoodtome #godsgraceissufficient #godblessusall🙏 #praisehimalways #seekgod #godhasaplanforme #wonthedoit🙏 #togodbetheglory🙏 #feelingblessed🙏 #biblewords #forgodsglory #godissogoodtome #jesusgirls #forgivenessheals #forgivessnessquotes #lut#lutheranchurch #teamjesuschrist #gloryofgod #lifewithGod #bibleverseoftheday📖 #biblescriptures #glorytogodalone #lutheranchurch #lcms #stplcms
