All About GOD

All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

IN  counseling the preacher asked me a very pointed question; " how do you want  people to remember you at your funeral?"  " what would they say about how you lived your life?"

These were two questions that i had heard before, but never  had addressed.

low point in my life. retired, separated, not sure which way to go. (funny thing  just happened, as i was thinking about what i was going to say after go; my finger hit the "d" button. yes the way to go is GOD.

life has been good i thought, but had  a anger problem from my youth, and i just spread it  around to much and now i am trying to be better. but been bad for so long nobody cares.

the new church that  i am attending now -pastor, who is my counselor, said he had noticed some change in me  in the past two years he has been associated with me. that helped a lot. at least somebody did notice some change in my behavior made me feel a little better. even tho they have not seem one of my outburst. but in the same vain, they have not given a reason to. especially when knowing a church is a hospital for hurting people. and know there are clicks, people who have been there longer than you have and have their way of  doing things.

so back to the original question. i have thought about and prayed about it but nothing  is coming out of my brain yet.  so in effect i took to writing this blog  to try and figure it out. maybe just might find an answer before i push up the grass.

it seems like  life just seems to on around you. and people act like they care but really do not. it seems like i cannot ever do anything right no matter how i try. one person in realty all ways has an answer for anything i say and it all ways benefits her way of thinking. no matter  how i thought i was doing right she all ways plays it different. it is sad to think for 20 years she has been trying to  change me but has not done so yet. i cannot seem to measure up to what she wants. if i say black she says white type a thing.

yes i did create the  problem in the past. i was (i hope now) a very vocal person who a drop of a hat could go off. but with drugs and counseling have made a lot of progress.( 65 year old problems are hard to get rid of  especially in the beginning i thought i did not have a problem) big  problem is, i think, is she still wants the other me and will go to some lengths sometimes to goad me into going off. then she is happy and calls all her friends and says well he did it again. in my thoughts it takes two to solve some problems. in my case i know i have a problem (because i have stated it here for the world to know and am working on it each day) but she does not have a problem and she will tell you so. no matter how i state how i feel, she  will turn it around and make it seem like  totally my fault.

bad  part about it is when this happens  i get somewhat depressed  and think bad thoughts. and this is why i like this  site. i can type my feelings as tho i am talking to GOD  and feel better. and when you guys comment it helps bring me up also knowing i am not here along. and not going or thinking about those bad web sites.

it is like drinking, once you have a taste for it, it draws you back when you are in a down mood. so now when i am down, i go to this web site and read about other persons who are having problems like me. and then i do not feel like a lone wolf.

in reality tho,  both drinking and bad sites really do nothing for you. they leave you wondering why you are their in the first place. no real value is gotten or gained. either  a bad hangover or empty feelings are all you have to show.

Clayton, I have learned that when we keep getting faced with the thing which causes us to act unseemly, it may be that God is trying to work that reaction out of us by allowing us to be saturated by it.  Try not to kick yourself if you have an outburst when she does this, but vow to God to try and do better next time and keep asking Him to help you with it.  You'll notice over time that the outbursts will come less frequently until you come to a place where they do not come at all. 

I can say this because I've been faced with the very same issues from my own family.  It does get better, little by little.  ;-)

Dear Clayton, Thanks very much for sharing your heart felt pains with us. Seems like we are all at different points in our lives on this journey with Jesus. I am happy about seeing your blog. Because I am retired/disabled now and life seems different from this perspective. We share the fact that we are all sinners and need to know about our relationship with God. He has changed my life and my attitude about living as well. I am honored by your share here.

your Brother in Christ,
