Stuck in my own mind

Everything came to a halt

And then love entered!

Nothing happens until something moves. ~ Albert Einstein

I have been involved in a struggle for the last two months.  I felt like things were happening “to” me and I have been paralyzed, unable to make a decision as to how I will handle this situation.

I have not experienced this many times in life.  I usually have strong opinions and a douse of intuition, the perfect recipe to make a decision and stick with it.

I have analyzed EVERYTHING from all directions.  I have said, “what if” and “I don’t know” more times than I can count (or care to remember.)

I would make a decision and then something inside would rumble, like aftershocks from an earthquake, and it didn’t feel right!  So I would not follow through and work hard to come up with a new solution.

I’ve been so confused…I didn’t know if my reticence was based in fear, or if my intuition was speaking so loud that it would be impossible for me to ignore it.

And I judged myself for being wishy washy….ewwww!

Dangerously close to a decision that could not be changed, I put the brakes on one more time yesterday.  I breathed a sigh of relief and I felt so much lighter.

And then love entered.  I felt the embrace of Angels and I knew that the chaos I felt inside was my beautiful self trying to stand up and be heard!  She was trying to prevent the old “self-abusive me” from making a decision that would ultimately hurt me in real and lasting ways.

Now I don’t know if that part of me will ever truly be gone, but I believe that the loving, kind, compassionate part of me is gaining the upper hand, for I would not have heard her in the past.  The struggle I have felt internally over the past two months has been so uncomfortable and it is not something that I wish to repeat…EVER!

So I pray to keep LOVE as the focal point, and I pray that I will know the difference between LOVE and FEAR if ever I feel this again. 

And I pray that the new solution to my problem will be THE CORRECT ONE!

I think the most important thing is to TRUST this new me because I know it is powered by Divine Love!!

  1. I pray the new solution will be correct, too. I believe it will be since it felt loving. It will certainly teach you what you need to learn next. I feel so happy for your growing awareness. Best good wishes to you, dear, Lorrie. ❤


    1. Thank you beautiful soul! I am at ease in this moment. A recovering self-control addict, I think I was trying to force resolution to my problem. I am in limbo as to actually resolving my issue, but I am in a beautiful place of peace…and letting go is a wonderful thing. Thanks, JoAnna…I so appreciate your loving kindness ❤


  2. I’m not sure how we lost contact Lorrie but I have had Computer problems and lost all my links a few times, anyway it is good to find you again.

    It is True Lorrie that only God’s Love lasts as you shared because it comes Divinely through the empowering of The Holy Spirit, worldly fleshy love doesn’t last, this is why God asks us to be perfected in His Love.

    I hope you don’t mind my sharing some of the Scriptures that confirm this Lorrie, I know you have respect for God’s Truth and it is in reading His words to us that our Faith grows……

    Romans 10:17 So then Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.


    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting Holiness in the fear of God.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

    2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    1John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

    “Christ”ian Love from both of us – Anne.


    1. Hi Anne…I’m not sure either, but I rest in the knowledge that we have re-connected exactly when we were supposed to!! I thank you for your adding here and I send you lots of love and blessings!! ❤


  3. Oh, Lorrie, I so can relate to what you’ve been going through. Fear and uncertainty, worry and pain. Release to a higher power and trusting in Him is such a gift. I’m so happy for you. Blessings always, Kim


      1. It seems like we all have a little ‘something’ in our lives, don’t we? Trials and struggles make us stronger and in the end the answer(s) are clear. “Purpose.” You will get there. Blessings, Dear Lorrie.


        1. I couldn’t agree more, Kim! Yes…I know so many people are struggling in life. It is all a journey that we walk…and what matters most, I think, is how we walk through it. The learning and understanding can be painful at times but in the end, it is all worth it!! Blessings to you as well, my friend!! 🙂

  4. The more the new you arises, the more death you bring to the old you. Consider her completely dead without resurrection (the old you). There’s no place for her anymore. I really enjoyed reading this. Blessings to you! 😊


    1. Thank you, Erica! It can sure get confusing when they are both talking 😉 Yes…I agree with you…once we remember the loving kind part of ourselves it becomes so much easier to slowly let the other one go! Many blessings to you 🙂 ♡

  5. Dear Lorrie, I am not too sure how I missed this gem, but it is indeed sparkling. There is so much we can better when we can get unstuck from our minds; compassion and loving kindness and love definitely jump to mind. Mind you, Lorrie Bowden comes to mind when I think of those things too. Double whammy! Love, Harlon


    1. Ah…Harlon! Your words are like candy to my soul ..thank you dear friend! I was hit hard and fast by the flu and have barely made it out the other side. What a beautiful message to come back to!!! Hope all is super with you ♡♡
