Choosing A Better Ending: OurDayDream Daily Column

Reference #15

Hello everyone! Welcome to my daily column! I hope that you had an awesome day! My day came with a massive awareness, one that is going to change the rest of my life. I suppose I knew how much your mind plays a part in my existence. What if you don’t know how to change it besides condemnation? Where does negative programming come from?

New Revelations!

When I was a child, there was never anything good in me. I was constantly a bad child. I was scolded for having fun, even laughing. I was never complimented. It was so bad, that I was in trouble sitting at the table wrong. As an adult; when I wasn’t being put down by people, I was using outside forces to be the reason I talked to myself the way I was talked to as a child! This is difficult because it’s instinctual, you know it’s wrong but you do it anyway. You become a victim to not only the world but to yourself. It makes self-love rather difficult. As a Christian that was born again, I knew what it was like to die to that thought pattern. When trauma came at the end of 2021, I slowly found myself sinking into that old behavior. Lately, it has been so much worse than ever before.

Prayer For Sanity

Today, I had a sincere prayer with God. I asked him to cast down all satan’s tactics against my mind and to take it over. To move in and show me what he sees, not only in the world but in me. During that prayer, my whole body loosened, and I heard God say there is no separation. Then suddenly my eyelids lit up. When I opened my eyes I heard God say even when your eyes are open, even when I see all the things happening around me.

New Clarity

I began seeing all the messages God has been sending me as one clear understanding. I also saw with clarity why my life was such a mess. I gained gratitude because now I knew for certain that I have the power to make changes in my life. Whereas yesterday I was doing the best I could with my miserable existence.

It’s by faith that divinity can do its works.

“and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”
Isaiah 30:21 KJV

This is super hard for me. Especially being an atheist for most of my adult life. I grew accustomed to walking by myself; My whole life my decisions brought forth more pain. It’s always questionable, is this me leading? I suppose it would be by faith that God is always the one leading. I am a sinner, we all are. It is recognizing our shortcomings that account us as wise I do believe. It is easy to get into a place of condemnation. As Romans chapter 9 says, he is there for us all the same. Even when I am in doubt or when I am angry, I can look to my left, to my right, I could look behind me and there I will find his mercy. It’s by faith that divinity can do its works in our members.

“Thank you, Father; I see it now. Instead of sitting, waiting for you to tell me where to go, I just need to go—somewhere, anywhere—and listen for your voice. You’re here, keeping me steady, guiding my way. Help me hear you, Lord, then fill me with the courage to go where you send me.”

I can pray the same thing over and over with no answer, then suddenly. . . If you need answers don’t stop praying for them! While you wait, stay grateful for the things that you do have. I wish you all a beautiful day tomorrow! Blessings to you 🙏.
