That Time of Year......
We are just finishing the holidays and the time of year that is suppose to be jolly, full of joy, exciting, a season of giving, full of laughter and fun,..........

Does this not ring true of you right now?  Do people tell you to get into the spirit of the season, and you can't find it anywhere......Do you feel like you are on the outside looking in? Do you feel like you are lost, numb, sad, lonely, in the midst of the busiest and most decorated, song filled season of the year? 

It is easy for those who have been overwhelmed by life to get lost in the sea of everything that happens during the holidays, and completely over looked. 

Sometimes we don't realize that we have wounds that are related to traumas in our life and there are triggers that set us off. We are actually unaware and don't even realize that some of our reactions are in response to those traumas. Traumas come in many different forms, loss of loved ones, physical trauma, emotional trauma, something big that effected your life and you didn't realize it. Sometimes it is many of the same little things that add up to a big trauma.  

It is okay to not feel as joyful as everyone else. It is okay to need quiet time by yourself. It is okay to not enjoy every single one of the traditions of the season. It is okay to take time to process your emotions and feelings. It is okay to need a time out, if traumas in your life cause triggers during this time of the year........It is okay to feel.

This is more common than you think and despite what you are going through, you are not forgotten. I want you to know that God sees you and He is right there for you whenever you need him. This is what helps me to get through the hard times. Even when I don't know what to pray, He is there and He understands what I am going through. 

I pray that this holiday season and new year bring a freedom to feel and release all those things that you feel weighing you down in life. May the Lord Bless you and keep you, May the Lord Make is face to shine upon you, May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you His Peace. (Numbers 6:24-26)
