Hey everybody! In case you didn't know....I love God! So scripture share time is really special to me because I get to spread His word and love with all of you! Today, I wanted to talk about being off-balanced, unglued, overwhelmed, all over the place, whatever you want to call it. It happens to us all and lately it's been happening to me.
"Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you"- 1 Peter 5:7 KJV
After church on Sunday, I came home and found myself, belly to the floor crying in my bedroom! Balling, hiccup, yeah that kind of crying! I wouldn't tell you a story! It all came to a head and burst! The children were you know being children...busy, loud, fighting, crying...children right?!! Husband started back his busy work schedule, not being able to stick to my goals I want to do daily, ie. morning prayer, workout, get everybody up and off to school, clean, play dates, sew time....the list goes on! I had it all planned out, I was dropping the ball EVERYDAY, and feeling terrible!
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God" - Philippians 4:6 KJV
You know how sometimes, you just need a good cry! I sooo needed that! I felt lighter when I got up! I let all MY plans go! I felt even better later that day after my bestie called and gave me a good ole "Gurl you know you can't be doing all of that...especially with no downtime!" It's funny we don't talk everyday, but we always call at the exact time we need encouraging!!
So if you have been feeling overwhelmed also, maybe you're trying to juggle it all, but you know it's too much. Allow me to be your bestie for a moment, and tell you to give it to God! We weren't created to do "life" on our own! What's the point in being stressed out, tired, and frustrated because you're trying to do everything! Let God be God, and He'll take care of you every time!!!
"...My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness...." - 2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself...."- Matthew 6:33-34 KJV
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, 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 KJV
P.S.- Since I've let go on Sunday....I've been waking up smiling, talking with my God, getting a 3 mile walk in, sewing....but most importantly taking an hour nap!!! Life is good:)!!
Talk to you all in the next post,
