Have you ever experienced heart-ache that no one seemed to understand? Or anger from the passing of a love one that others mistreated or neglected? A door of opportunity closing when you were optimistic that things would work out?
Well, if so, I understand, because the theme this week in my inner-circle caused me to really self-reflect on the number of emotions that we feel in our time here on Earth.
The reality is none us can or will escape the emotional ride and unexpected situations that cause our emotions to shift from high to low, happy to sad, or glad to mad. It’s part of life.
And that’s okay, it makes us human and as humans we do have the ability to look at where we are even if we don’t understand it or like it and take the next best step or make the next practical decision with us feeling the emotions without letting the emotions decide.
With that being said, I ask you today do you need comfort? Comfort from dealing with anything – work assignments, supervisors, co-workers, children, parents, marriage, divorce, toxic relationships, friends, finances, depression, educational pursuits, death in the family. I mean anything. If you answered yes. Then the next question I have is are you a child of the King? If you answered no let me, say today’s a great day to become a King’s Kid.
Because as you navigate life you will have to make decisions and you will need discernment to make wise choices and the best resource to help guide you in life to live life is the creator of your life also called the Bread of Life.
If you answered yes, this activity is definitely for you. And you’ll walk away with clarity to locate where you are, be able to identify who is a part of the reason you’re there, how long you’ve been there, a declaration to give you a different perspective, and a plan of action you can implement today to shift your emotions and your mindset about your situation.

Have You Told God? | Do You Need Comfort Activity?

Go Through Each Column and Answer These Questions Honestly
Remember this activity is to help empower you to locate you so you understand where you are, how you got there, and do something about it. Don’t rush it. Take your time and if necessary, put on some relaxing music or go to a quiet space where you can be alone to think without distractions.
In Column 1
I specifically used the word grieving because I want you to think about any situation that is causing you to feel deep sorrow or distress, a cause of suffering, trouble and annoyance, or as though you now face an unfortunate outcome or disaster.
In Column 2
Sometimes we hate to admitted it and are often surprised by it, but those we love the most can and do the most damage to us. And if we don’t acknowledge it, we can’t address them or the situation and that’s means we stay stuck and become bitter instead of better.
In Column 3
I AM – Here is where you will write your declarative empowerment statement to shift your perspective and to speak over yourself and your life. Because the key in forward movement is knowing that you can move when you’re ready and willing to do what’s in your best interest.
In Column 4
Children do something us adults sometimes seem to struggle with – they go ask questions from the best reliable and credible source. Translation, whatever situation is grieving you God has an answer. So, much as your children or maybe your nieces and nephews or even little cousins question you and expect as an adult you have the answers; please know that God is Our Father and His word declares in Matthew 11: 28-30…
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
So that means we as His children can go to Him with our concerns, troubles, and frustrations and He will give us the comfort we need for our souls. So, I call you to invest time to go to not a source, but to THE never failing, all-knowing, and all-powerful source to get the relief you need for your soul.
If you need further explanation, remember you can view the video. Praying you seek rest from the best – Jesus!
