"This week I’d like to invite you to share what YOUR “Mom” help is. Some drink coffee, soda, or chia-tea. Others check email or read their favourite blogs. Some talk a walk…. what do you do when you need to clear your head and take a breather?"
"Please share a Scripture that gives you a “mom” help when you’re spirit is feeling overwhelemed."
I admit I love being on my computer and reading peoples blogs but what I love to do when I need a breather (and even when I don't LOL) is to go in our bedroom, lay on our bed and read a good book!! I just love to read. I like to get lost in a good book. If it's a really good book I can't wait to get back to it and read more. But then (if it's a good book) I almost feel a little sad when I am done reading it. Like I am saying good-bye to an old friend. It's amazing what a good book does for me :).
The Scripture I've been living by lately is one I have shared here before I believe. I have been living on it since just before hubby was laid off from his work at the end of Feb. It's what reminds me that no matter what we are going through God is always there for us and taking care of us. I have seen some miracles in this time too. No, hubby doesn't have a job yet but God has been providing for us when we think we are at out lowest. God is Awesome :). Ok anyway the Scripture is...
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" Matthew 6:25-27
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34
These are really what keep me going and remind me that it doesn't do me or anyone else any good for me to worry. Trust me my true nature is to worry. I am a worrier by nature so I look at this Scripture often to get me through. God is Good :).
