RELAXATION FOR THE TIRED MIND AND BODY

 

 

 

Presentation2We all have had the problem with our minds not switching off when we try to sleep.  At least I have had that problem in the past and still do.  I will lie in bed and my mind is all over the place thinking of everything that comes to mind.  You toss and you turn all the time and when you look again it is late and by the time you wake up in the morning you are so tiered you do not want to even move out of bed.  You see we all have that problem sometimes.

So I have decided to share something to do making your body to relax before going to bed.  I have started doing this procedure during the day even when I feel I am all tensed up and it makes me relax.

Beginning with the toes, first tighten and relax all the muscles in your body, so that you are able to identify the difference between tight and relaxed.

 Then tighten each part of your body in turn. First tighten the toes and let go.  Do this three times. 

 Then tighten the ankles and release them slowly.  Again repeat three times.  Every bit is done in threes.  Concentrate on each part you tighten.

Tighten the calves and let go then follow to the thighs following the same procedure.  Finally for this part tighten the full length of your legs completely and release, again repeating three times. (This exercise is great for restless leg syndrome.) 

 Now move on to the rest of your body.  Repeating as usual for each part, tighten in turn your buttocks, your stomach, your spine, your neck, your hands, your arms and your neck, your face and your scalp concentrate on the different points. 

 Finally tighten every single muscle you have used, and let go completely.  Repeat three times, and by now you should recognise the difference between the state of relaxation at the beginning of the exercise, and the one at the end.

In time with practice you should be able to relax completely just by doing the last part of the exercise, but for now take it slowly and feel your body relax and with time you will feel the your muscles and mind relaxing.  Hope it helps you as it has helped me.

 

 

 

 

MY TESTIMONY FOR MIRACLES THAT DO HAPPEN

Testimony

Sitting here all alone on my bed, music playing softly in the back waiting for my hubby dearest to arrive home from work as it is already late my mind started wondering to the past week we had.  I just had to share it as it is very important to me.

Thinking back what a week it had been, it started with me on the Monday 10th February 2014 browsing the net to my surprise my husband came home early from work.  He had lost his job and with me being without a job for two years now working on and off on contract, he had been the sole breadwinner for us me relying on him most of the time.  I went all pale in my face and quiet listening and taking all off it in.

My husband worked for the past five years with a very difficult man with no human feelings at all.  He use to arrive home some days very negative and did not want to go back to work many a times, but with us in the situation we where he had no choice.

I looked at him and said it will be fine we must just believe and keep faith.  We both decided to advertise our motorbike on the net to be sold, thinking we must make a plan to survive and it could take some time for a sale to take place.  By the evening the motorbike had been sold and God provided money to keep us going till either one of us had a work.

As the week progressed we applied for three job applications for him.  By Thursday afternoon a gentleman phoned him for an interview the Friday morning.  As Friday arrived we read a verse my mom had sent us to read out of Psalm 56.  We read the whole chapter but the verse that stayed in our minds was the following:

When I am afraid, I will trust in you,

In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust:

I will not be afraid.                     

What can a mortal man do to me?

My husband went to the interview and he started working today.  When in doubt believe and trust in God.  He is in control of your life and he makes all possible for those that believe in him.  Leave all your fears, pain and concerns with him and it will be provided in his time.

That is why I do believe in miracles of God.  God made this possible for us and I praise him for that in all what I do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOVE IS!!!

With Valentines day arriving here is something from me to you.

Love is patient.

Love is kind. 

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. 

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres.

Love never fails.  

Always keep love in your lives.

HOPE IS ALIVE!!!

Where there is life, there is hope.  These words are so true.  I have been through many trials and tribulations regarding my life from being in an alcoholic home to losing all my belongings we worked so hard for, but there has always been one who I can trust in my Father God with all that happened in our lives he has always provided for us and a very special friend.  I have never gone to bed hungry or even dirty.  I have always had a warm place to stay.  I praise Him for always listening to my prayers and all the tantrums I have had.

It could have been worse than it had been.  It does not matter what trials and misfortune we all go through if we say up these nine words aloud to ourselves, we feel much better.  It’s like taking medicine not very sweet and most off the time very bitter and not easy to swallow.  You do not always believe that it will help you when swallowing it down.  It takes time for it to work.

There are days that that you need this sentence much more than other days.  We believe that our problems are much greater than others problems and that is where we make our mistake.  This is what you do just sit and switch on your telly.  On that screen there are many people all over the world going through much worse problems than what you have been going through, from people being murdered to people losing everything in their lives. When you see people going through hardship and pain, your problems are not as bad as theirs.  Then you sigh and say these magical words: “It could have been worse than it had been.”

It is so true.  Many things could have been worse. If you had broken your one leg it could have been worse you could have broken two.  But one day you will stand up and look back at those problems and think about them going forward and always remember that there is Hope!

Hope you find with your Creator and other people that are always there to listen.  I want to thank my special friend she knows who I am referring to as she has listened to me and has gone through many hardships herself.  Always being there for me even if we do not see each other that often and making me believe in my-self.  Remember there is hope and if you do not have anyone to talk to please feel free to just drop me an email I will listen.  I may not be able to solve the problem but at least you have someone to talk to.

God Bless and take care keep faith and believe.

IF ONLY I KNEW

If only I knew what this day would hold for me,

I would have easily shaken off my fears,

If only I could see where you are leading me Father,

I would thank you more and plead much less,

If only I looked up at you I would hold on to the promises,

I would reject all the lies,

If only I had more trust to confide in your plans for me,

I would realize how little we need to depend on others,

Help me please to look back and realize how much you have done for me,

So that my faith can become stronger for the road ahead,

That I can realize that the long road full off twist and turn has always been better,

Than the short and easy road,

Remind me Lord that I am not alone, that you are always walking beside me,

Remind me Lord every day how far I have progressed to complete this,

Walk of life I am doing with you by my side.

PRAYER FOR THE NIGHT

Dear Lord thank you for the day we have had

You’re walking beside us all the way

You have brought us through this day looking after our very need

Dear Lord thank you for the home you give

For us to use for our comfort and rest

Thank you God for each thing that you bless us with

And let us remember it come’s only from you

You give us your grace, you forgive us our sin

And have mercy on us through thick and thin

You give us a choice to open the door of our heart

So that you can come through

To lead and guide us the right way once more

You are our savior and our friend we call on you for all our needs

We pray to you when going goes tough we pray and thank you when you heed

Lord Jesus Christ we ask once again be with us through this night

Grant us Lord that you will be there when we call to you if in fright

Forgive us our sins once more we pray

Before we close our eyes in sleep

Be there with us until light

We praise you Dear Lord
