Overcoming Disappointment - Part 2

Overcoming Disappointment


"As EPIC Conquerors we say “the battle is real, but the victory is assured.”


 Disappointments happen to everyone. What we hoped for, wanted to have happen, hoped would happen, expected to happen…didn’t.  Now what?

Mad, rage, angry, pout, pity party, curse up a storm, lash out, break or smash something, etc.

All human responses, all are temper tantrums we throw when things don’t turn out how WE wanted or perceived them to turn out because, after all, we should be exempt from trials, right?

Some disappointments happen as the result of actions from others and some from our own poor choices or decisions made.

Some disappointments are unrelated to anything we have control over, epidemics, economic downturns, overthrow of governments, earthquakes, accidents, windstorms, hail, unknowingly or unaware that we’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, etc.

Now that we’ve considered all of that...

Making Godly decisions

Harbor Lights : Making Godly decisions


When I know in my “knower” so strongly
that it’s already a finished situation as though it had manifested. 


We all have decisions that we make on a regular basis. What to eat, wear, etc. When it comes to the big decisions in life we want to be wise and choose the right choice.

Bob Mumford shared a story over 45 years ago that I have never forgotten. He shared about a certain harbor that was very dangerous for ships to navigate. Many had shipwrecked trying to do so as there were treacherous rocks under the surface of the water.

Someone discovered that there was a way to bring a ship in safely if they followed a certain route. They decided to guide the ship safely to shore they would erect 3 harbor lights. If a ship aligned themselves to the 3 lights they could safely arrive at the harbor.

The three lights must appear as one single light. If any of the three were off kilter then the ship was not safe to come to shore....

Dealing with Denial - Episode 2

Mini-Series: Dealing with Denial

 


 

etting the Atmosphere for Tough Conversations


Let’s talk about setting the atmosphere for tough conversations to break free from denial.

First of all, don’t have these conversations when you’re angry, upset, emotionally overloaded or in the heat of the moment. That’s like pouring gasoline on a roaring fire. It will explode and cause more damage.

When you are aware that you’ve been in denial and are ready to open that closet door or lift the lid off of Pandora’s box strategically prepare for the tough conversation. It can be a conversation you hold with yourself or one that you have with another individual.

If you are emotionally exasperated with pent up feelings it’s best to separate yourself with some distance or space before you have “the talk.”

Take a break: Go for a walk, jog, swim, play tennis, hike etc. Expend the pent-up energy and emotional angst that wants to erupt....

Mini-Series: Dealing with Denial


 

 Denial : Let’s Trash the Myths!


Denial is a popular way to protect oneself from reality that hurts us to think about. Denial is a protective mechanism that can shelter us for awhile. The mind (soul) can overload when our emotions (soul) can’t handle a particular crisis or problem.

Denial shields us from the hurt. It also keeps us from helping ourselves or the people we love the most! Denial always bothers the logic of our mind. We will make excuses for our denial which helps reinforce the original denial.

The MOTIVE for denial often starts with the noble concept of protecting ourselves or someone we love from further PAIN. The REALITY of denial is that it extends the hurt, multiplies the problems and almost always causes pain to other people.

Myth #1:

If we don’t talk about it, it will go away.
Truth Alert: Denial makes the hurt last longer and hurt more.

Myth #2:

Let’s pretend it didn’t really...

Finally, I commit myself to service.


My Miracle Morning Routine: Here is the breakdown of the terms and then exactly how I use them, in order:

SERVE
The first four help me still my body, focus my mind, soften (or heal) my heart, and tap into my soul so I am connected to the spirit. Finally, I commit myself to service.

A life lived in service to one’s self is a miserable life. That’s why so many rich people are miserable. You would think they’d be happier because they have so much. But most are not. Having wealth is not the problem. Thinking that wealth will make them happy—is the problem.

We will never find fulfillment if we think it’s about “me getting mine.” Fulfillment is found in service to others. Period. That’s how God wired this universe. We can’t escape it, no matter how hard we try.

So, before I get up from my seat, I remind...

SURRENDER
In Alcoholics Anonymous, the first and second steps are to admit powerlessness, and dependence upon a higher power. That’s called “surrender.” On my own, I’ll make a mess of my life. But, guided by and in alignment with God, I can be restored and thrive.

Jesus spoke to his followers about what I call “secrets of the universe.” One was the encouragement to visualize myself as a branch and God as the Vine (see John 15). The Vine is the life source. The branch is the beneficiary—reaching out into the world and producing fruit. Branches produce good fruit to the extent that they remain connected to—dependent upon—the Vine.

Detached branches are sticks. Trying to manufacture fruit apart from the Vine...
