Life can get us down sometimes; we get sad, depressed, tired, lonely, in pain, and the thought that we cannot tolerate another bad news story or take another step on the road of life sometimes leaves us feeling totally helpless. When it happens to me I think of this picture and see myself as the lamb around His neck. Happy Monday.
Charles L. Allen wrote the following in his book, “All Things Are Possible Through Prayer”:
“We use different parts of the brain for different purposes. We use the upper brain cells when we worry and brood and feel fear. The lower brain cells control the muscular activities of the body so that when we engage in physical activity, it relieves the upper brain cells and allows them to function normally.”
The next time you are in the clutches of worry, fear, or anxiety try jogging on the spot, scrubbing a floor, or dancing a jig and notice how those nagging emotions give way to the new activity.
It works for me.
