This week has been a lonely one. It’s been a week where my daughter and I have pretty much been on our own. It’s had days where I’ve desperately needed to speak to another grown-up. Do you ever have days like that?
It’s been a week that has really caused me to think about where my heart abides.
Does it abide in circumstances?
Do I spend more of my day worry about the things happening around me then I do on my knees?
1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to “pray constantly.” Do I do this?
I hope that I do.
I need to pray constantly.
Why, you may ask?
Because, my dear friends, I need the strength of God so much. I need Him to help me through the hard days. To encourage me on the discouraging ones. To give me the strength to be the mommy I need to be to my little girl, the wife I need to be for my husband, and the friend I need to be to those around me.
I try time and again to do it on my own. But I can’t. I can’t meet the demands of this life without my Jesus at the Helm of it all. I have only made it this far in this thing called life because of His strength and peace.
Grab hold of him dear friends. Let him take your heart and fill it with His peace. Let Him take control. Trust me, there’s no better place to be.
