I am struggling...I admit it.
I don't have it together...at all.
It bothers me...like crazy.
While I am very happy for Jeremy with his occupational change that is coming in a little over a week, I am really starting to worry/fret about the changes that it will mean for me.
Selfish, I know.
I could list all the things that have been weighing me down, but really they are pointless. My head is telling me that I am NOT trusting in the Lord to walk me through this, that I am letting Satan get into my head and drag me down.
So, tonight I turned to this little book my mom gave me one year (for mother's day I think) called "God's Promises for Moms." Now, I know that most of my troubles have nothing to do with my children right now, but I just needed to find something to work on me. A good, solid Bible verse that would sort of slap me back into reality.
And you know what? I found just what I was looking for.
RIGHT ON THE FIRST PAGE!!
Here it is,
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Not the first time I have ever read this scripture, but I found it very comforting tonight. So tonight I am going to take a minute and THANK Him for who He is, present my requests to him and rest in the peace I find in the Lord.
But I am also gonna try and do this...
