You will recall in my last entry about not been able to go away because of my singleness.. Well I did manage a mini break to Bournemouth because I was under a lot of pressure and stress at work. I have to say the sea air did me a lot of good. The B&B I stayed in was just 5 minutes to the beach, I went for long walks, spending time contemplating, praying, etc. I took myself to the next town (Poole) for a bit of sight seeing as Bournemouth didn’t really have a lot to offer. My trip paid off I saw beautiful yachtes been docked, went to a museum, a market and strolled around the town looking at Victorian houses.
I came back home so refreshed, lots of people commented on how relaxed I looked. Unfortunately, it didn’t last long as I was back to facing a new set of problems ranging from work to noisy neighbours, unexpected expenses, you name it. However, I was determined not to let it get me down because it will be so easy to find myself back in a rot. So like David, my fave bible King I drew strength from God’s word, sang worship songs. There are two that have now become my anthem, actually I wake to either one of them every (my alarm) morning – Jesus at the Centre & Your Presence by Israel Houghton. I listen to messages to sleep so I wake with the word in my head. I can’t say it is all honk dory, there are days I am down but I have to get right back up again because staying down for long only gives the enemy ammunition which I am not prepared to do. I won’t give him the satisfaction!!
