Him the rain, I the flower

rain-flower

I use to be one of those people that said “My relationship with God isn’t defined by how many times I attend church” or “Just because I don’t talk about God it does not mean I don’t have a relationship with him”. As I started going to church and kept at it I realised how misguided I have been all along. I thought me getting on my knees (every once in a while at that) was enough, me proclaiming that I love God and asking him to do certain things in my life yet having a mediocre approach to things concerning him wasn’t going to work.
Through going to church I had an opportunity to listen the word of God, at that very moment I knew that if I needed him help me realise all the big dreams I have and in the process fulfil my destiny I was going to have to take my relationship with him seriously. Like any other relationship, perhaps a relationship with a boyfriend, for it to fully function it has to be nurtured.

Nurturing my relationship with God meant putting him first, inviting him in everything I do, trusting and respecting him.  Arriving at church on time (because he is my number one priority), switching of my cell-phone during the service so I can listen to the word of God (Giving him the respect and the honour he deserves). Singing at church when I need to sing, clapping when I need to clap, giving offering, tithing, reading my bible, giving, showing forgiveness, understanding that my body is his temple and most importantly showing nothing but love.
Ofcourse God wants me to great, that’s all he wants for me, that’s all he wants for all of us but for him to be able to do that for us we have to play our part.
“ Now  to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” Ephesians 3:20

God wants to take us to the next level, he can’t do that if we are being mediocre in our approach to him.  I know now that if I live by his instructions and give him praise his favour comes down on me.  A flower needs water to grow, to blossom, to reach its full potential. God’s favour is the rain and I am the flower. Rain without the flower is still rain but a flower without rain or water is not a flower.

Him the rain and I the flower.

    As you will inevitably learn on your path to losing weight, effective weight loss is not only about watching what you eat, but much more about changing your lifestyle. This means changing your habits and how you approach your day-to-day life. Read this information to help you throughout the process.

    Like many other ailments, people are not properly informed about the reality of sleep apnea, especially if they have never dealt with it before. Many people begin to develop this issue later in life and are unaware of how to reduce problems with it- that is where this article comes in with useful tips!

    If you are unsure whether or not you have sleep apnea, consider setting up an audio or video recorder next to your bed. When you review the recording, watch or listen for choking, gasping or other signs that you are not getting enough air as you sleep. Present your findings to your doctor if you suspect that you do have apnea.

    If you have sleep apnea, try sleeping on your side. If you are a back or stomach sleeper, gravity is working against you all night. Your airway is much more likely to collapse if you are facing straight up or down. Sleeping on your side instead makes it much easier for your body to maintain your airway as you sleep.

    Avoid drinking alcohol to excess. Your muscles are relaxed by drinking alcohol. You may want to feel more relaxed, but it can exacerbate your apnea. When your throat muscles relax, your airway narrows and causes sleep apnea. If you’re not going to give up alcohol, then just don’t do it right before bedtime.

    Getting a CPAP machine is probably the best option for your sleep apnea. These machines will keep your airways open and help you breathe. You should talk to your doctor about CPAP machines and figure out which model would be the most adapted. This machine should work if you use it properly.

    If you think that you may have sleep apnea, set up a video of yourself as you sleep. Just be sure that the video recorder has sound capability. When you wake up, look at the video, and if it seems like something other than snoring is going on, it may be time to go to the doctor.

    Consider an alternative sleep apnea flower remedy therapy (also known as essence therapy). Vervain is used in this treatment for its calming and relaxing effects. This can help treat your symptoms, including insomnia problems associated with your apnea. As an added bonus, it also helps reduce overall stress and lower high blood pressure.

    A great way to know if you are experiencing severe apnea is to keep a sleep journal. Write down all the times that you wake up in the night and also record how you feel in the morning. This will help you to have a record to see your progress.

    If you are a trucker who has sleep apnea, take precautions to stay safe on the road. First of all, get yourself properly diagnosed and treated. If your doctor prescribes a CPAP, use it. They are small and easily portable and can run on battery power if necessary. Try to stay fit and get regular sleep to keep your condition under control.

    Learning more about sleep apnea is important because knowledge can help put your mind at ease. Take the information you have learned in this article and talk to your doctor about it. He or she can then better help you more easily when you know more about this disorder yourself.
