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.


Coincidence? Hmmm?

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...

Don't you think I need to have this printed, framed and hung in our new house?  I am definitely gonna do that...now, where to put it?!

Change is hard. Good OR bad change. Within a couple of weeks you'll have a new routine down and things will be running smoothly...er..well, as smoothly as things CAN run when you have kids! ;)
Hang in there!

Before long you will be adjusted! I stressed and stressed when Joe moved to the bank over here. We had our routine down and I didn't want it changed! I knew that this move would mean I would no long have help in the mornings and I would take and pick the girls up from daycare EVER day. Which is our reality now, but we have adjusted! I miss my days of shipping them off with Joe and getting ready in the peace! Hang in there! So much good will come from this! :-) So glad you came last night!

Good for you to search God's word for peace!! I am trying to make a better habit of that too!! It makes all the difference. .as you know. .He doesn't promise that things will be easy.. or that we will always like the changes (even though we hope we will) He does promise to be by our side and lead us (if we can remember to ask Him!!) The bottom line is. .you WILL come on the other side. .you can do it!!
