Has anyone ever disregarded your feelings?

Told you, that the way you thought about a situation was wrong, even when you knew in your heart you were right?

When you know in your heart, without a shadow of a doubt, you are right about something stand your ground. Don't collapse like the fabric on a lawn chair that has spent the Summer outside getting weaker everyday.

Your opinion is important....

Your opinion counts....

You are important...

And your thoughts matter...

Stand up for yourself because no one else will.

I found this great scripture when I was reading this morning and wanted to share it with you. It goes with this post perfectly. I think it is very powerful.

2 Corinthians 10:7
The trouble with you is that you look at me and I seem weak and powerless, but you don't look beneath the surface. Yet if anyone can claim the power and authority of Christ, I certainly can.


Today's song, I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me
1st video, 1st clip
This is such a beautiful song, if you have a chance please listen to it...

That is so important. I think that has been an area I've struggled in alot. You are SO right. I love the verse too. I don't think I've noticed that one before. The song is beautiful. Take care.

Donna said...

Hello Nita: I've just come across yor site via Sandi's 'Holding Patterns' and I absolutely love it.
Your writings are so touching I have been deeply moved by your spirital words too.
I have read a lot but can't find out when your dear Husband John passed away. I will say a little prayer for you both tonight.

"Told you, that the way you thought about a situation was wrong, even when you knew in your heart you were right?"

My gosh, Nita. Yes! And it's been my "stubbornness" that saved me. Or you could call it faith in myself, my instincts :))

I just posted a quiltie using some of the fabric you sent me. I am in love with the tattered tea towel. XOXOXOXOXOXOX

I have found that people who discount the opinion of others to be very controlling individuals, in many aspects, if not all, of their lives.
