“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication and want what is right for me; Let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, who delights and takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.“ Psalm 35:27 AMP
The word “Mega” means Great; Very large, Huge Extreme. God wants us to a blessed life and Mega-live but oftentimes we settle for less and become NEGA-tive.
I define MEGA as ME & GA (God Almighty). When I’m in the MEGA heart/mind-set, I feel rested and great. On the contrary, I end up in NEGAtive mind-set and I get stressed out. Now, I remind myself to set my mind focused on God who is MEGA (great) as He is my Problem-solver. This makes no room for any negative mindset set-up focused on the problem/s that makes me upset.
Let me ask you a question.
Have you ever experienced being burned-out? I did. It is likened to driving a car with no gas. You will never get to your destination no matter how hard you try.
When I got burned out many years ago, I could not function. Physically, I was tired all the time, no energy… no life at all. Mentally, I could not even think right as I had “brain fog”. Relationally, no one wanted to be near me including myself. Emotionally, I was full of drama bouncing from angry outbursts to yelling; annoyed with every little thing with no patience at all. Psychologically, I thought the whole world was against me. I was extremely negative. My theme song is “Me (You) and me against the world… Spiritually, it felt like I am in a desert. I was thirsty for people to love me unconditionally… understand me with no ifs… accept me with no buts. Worst, I thought I smelled like the Dead Sea (sewer/ canal) except I felt like drowning in my own mud while hosting my own “Pity Party” which I hated.
I was so NEGA-tive and STRESSED – OUT to the max.
S. Sad n Sorry
I was so tired feeling Stressed-out all the time. I played with the spelling and read it reversed:
STRESSED became DESSERTS. . .
I played Boggle rearranging the spelling in my mind again and again to exhaustion. Then, I prayed. Immediately, my RESTLESSNESS turned to RESTFULNESS as if a light bulb came into my mind and the idea popped:
“When we work . . . we work and we get . . . stressed-out . . .
When we play, (e.g., shopping, traveling, drinking wine, or any other distractions), we forget the problems temporarily then it comes back again..
When we pray in faith, God works . . . and He takes the stress out.
This is when we rest in God who gives us the best.”
I then realized that the best prayer is to be silent and listen. (same/exact letters when rearranged). This exercise trained me to have my mind cleared and allowed me to declare (same/exact letters used) God’s greatness and power (MEGA). I am praying all is well as we be silent and listen . . . as we wait for our minds cleared so we can declare having a day of AMEN especially this summer.
