"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

MY BLANKIE



Ironically enough it was my mother who pointed out to me one day as a young teenager sitting at the dinner table with her and my late step-father (who I could not talk or even look at as I resented my mother marrying him) “why do I clench my fist?” I remember mumbling something like, “I don’t know.” But, from that day on, I realized I did this and still do!

At times I find it to be like my “blankie.” It has come to the point that it feels really comfortable when I curl up my left hand and bring it close to me. I tend to do it with my right, but not as much as the other hand.

Naturally a clenched fist can reveal pent up anger (which I no doubt have) and much emotional pain.

How about you?

  1. I was a teeth clincher. When something realllllly bothers me you will my swinging leg come to a sudden stop. I am a leg wiggler by nature. When that sucker stops, look out. :-O)

  5. Is it that we all have a reflex that occurs when anxiety sets in?

  8. I don't know what I do to relieve anger. Today, tho, at work, I paced for awhile because I felt like breaking somebody.
