Post by CountryGirl59: "Imminently Patient or Imminent Patience"
Good Day Friends ...
I was visiting with a friend recently discussing “LIFE” and we kiddingly came up with this topic. I thought it would be a great challenge to approach it.
I know we poke fun at things regarding the term imminent and patient/patience however it is an interesting combination of words… is it truly an oxy moron??
Oxy moron: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words (as cruel kindness); broadly: something (as a concept) that is made up of contradictory or incongruous elements

But in seriously looking at the title and equating it to where we are at with this Dinar Ride or any other BIG issue in your life that you are “awaiting”. Let me share these thoughts.
While Hope deferred maketh the heart sick, can you possibly imagine what life would be like without “hope” ? If choices have to be made, I would far rather have the possibility of GOOD in my life than the frustration of supposing bad things all the time.
Our attitudes greatly affect how we get through every day and sometimes every minute of every day… We must remember that what ever words and attitudes we embrace that is what we will see come to fruition in our lives. It is a law of nature.
Where the focus goes, the energy flows… meaning IF you think in the negative, doubting terms of things, then you will be encouraging frustration to be within you.
But then Quite on the contrary…
IF you think in hopeful positive terms, you will find that you will have peace in your heart… This does not necessarily mean that you will have the desired result of the BIG Issue in which we are wanting to be Imminent AT THAT MOMENT, However… it will most definitely make it more bearable.
Do NOT remain in a situation where YOU feed your doubts and fears.
There is an old saying… there are two dogs in a fight… Fear and Faith… and which ever DOG you feed will be the stronger one and the one who wins out…
SO FEED YOUR FAITH !!!
Find things that you CAN DO in the situation your in, in the meantime, be busy with WHAT you CAN do… and then
DO IT !!.
Stop letting FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) paralyze you, keeping you from enjoying the simple pleasures of PEACE.
YOU are in CONTROL of your own ATTITUDE!!! There is not one other soul that can determine what you decide to embrace. That is on YOU and You ALONE...Choose wisely.
Clear out the clutter in your head !!!
We have to make choices in life, sometimes they are very difficult choices but YOU can do whatever you set your mind to do…I believe in YOU! Remember half of every battle is fought in your head. If you change your thinking.... you change your circumstances.
Remember to do this... because I am... HOLDING ON!!
