just had the 1000th fight with my dad

Post by Cloud on Sun Jul 17, 2011 3:17 pm

need a Word.


i know how to avoid fighting with my dad sometimes but not all the time.


either way...i'm SICK of it...maybe i'm not sick of the fighting but rather what STARTS it.


he always instigates it though with a condescending comment or some petty criticism of me or something i'm doing.


the nature of these "fights/blowouts" are so sporadic.


they make no sense.


if i hold my feelings back...i perceive they could be avoided...sometimes...but not ALL the time.


my dad has a problem.


i don't even know what just happened, these "fights"...just...happen.


if me and my dad are physically around each other...that's all the ingredients needed.

I don't have a particular word from God for you but I understand what you are going through. First of all you have to keep in the bible, meditate on scriptures that speak about joy, that speak about not getting angry, that speak about peace. One of the scriptures that God has showed me which has helped tremendously is Psalms 118 verse 24:

[24] This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

I use to wake up in the morning dreading the future and what God led me to do everyday when I woke up was to say "This is the day which the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it". This scripture changed my life, my attitude about the day began to change for the better about two weeks later after I started saying that scripture every morning, I was more happy more joyful.

Other scriptures that will help are:

Psalms 55 verse 18:

[18] He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.

Isaiah 26 verse 3:

[3] Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Psalms 16 verse 11:

[11] Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
