Today I Praising God about Fasting and "letting go" of my Facebook. Thank the Lord! and thank-you Ministry for all the information. I, too, was guilty of sending very emotional texts. I never thought of sending them to myself (the Lord via my account) so this is something I am doing instead.
The last time I sent an emotional text telling my husband that I wanted to grow old with him and how could he do this to us, etc,( you know the rest) he text back that he did not want to hurt me or fight with me, so he would not be coming to see me anymore. That scared me. After listening to wisdom on this site, I have been much better about the texts, almost zero. I am now so grateful that I do not participate in social media, but will pray for those who do, so they do not use this to hurt themselves.
I also confess that I sent him cards, and he said they make him feel bad, and he does not want to feel bad so he's keeping his distance from me! Again, this site has helped me rethink my actions. I am taking my emotions to the Lord in prayer on my knees. I am not crying as much for some reason. I actually had a beach towel by my bed to cry into because the tissues were not enough. I am praying more, reading more scripture and crying less. Thank you RMI. Prov. 3:5-6Trust in the Lord with all your heart and rely not on your own understanding; Acknowledge him in all ways and he will keep your paths straight.
I no longer consider my circumstances but know that our God is the alpha and omega of my story.
Ps. 46:10Be still and know that I am God.Quit trying to manipulate your circumstances and allow the will of God to unfold.

Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
Be sure to submit a Praise Report today and enter through that narrow gate few ever find!
