Whatsoever things...

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Philippians 4:8

Since I was really little I have had very bad nightmares... A lot of times it was after I watched something rather gruesome or violent(like CSI!). I prayed and prayed about this but nothing seemed to change. Until this past summer I had not seen anything that bothered me for at least 2 years. So I was having the same nightmares of things I had seen 2 years previously.

Finally I was getting desperate... I mean who wants to wake up every other night crying? I'd cry myself to sleep... I wouldn't go into my bedroom at night without the light turned on, and for a while the light was at the otherside of the room. I was really frieked out!

Then one day my big brother mentioned that when he was desperate he finally decided to fast... ironically a few weeks later one of my friends mentioned that I should try it... So I did. And guess what?

I haven't had a nightmare for 2-almost 3- weeks! Praise the Lord!

Another thing that I have been doing is taking the above verse to heart. When I start to think of something bad I force myself to think of a Bible verse, or I start singing a song... God has been good, and I am especially thankful for my family and friends that encouraged me to do something about my problem, even if they didn't realize they were!
