Hi, everyone! 👋🏻
I had plans today to do a nice log summer/autumn recap but my blog isn’t loading pictures very well today. Our internet isn’t the best sometimes.
Wow, it’s been a long time since I did a life post. In the last several weeks I’ve been insanely busy and started to consider stopping my blog, but a friend encouraged me to start posting again. 😀
To start, I have to confess I’ve done 0 writing in the past year. I mean, I’ve written emails and texts, but nothing story-wise. I’m hoping when things slow down a little bit and I get into a new routine maybe I can start writing again. I guess I’ve just been in a creative slump. 🤪
There have been a lot of changes this Summer/Autumn. I had Lasik eye surgery, flew out to see my brother in Colorado for the second time and we had so much fun and did so many things, (all that will be included in my summer/Autumn post as soon as my blog works with me.) I got a major role in a community theatre production of Little Women and got a new job working at a Christian daycare. So I’ve been running around for the last few weeks. Thankfully I’m starting to get into a better routine. I’m learning that getting to bed early is essential for a good day. I’ve been trying to work out more and eat better.
I have to admit I’ve been very stressed recently and overwhelmed. It’s hard making life decisions and being so busy. It’s all very new in some ways.
I’ve learned a lot recently about life and control. For so long I’ve been trying to control my life and my circumstances. I’ve tried to create a very safe version of life for myself. Attempting to organize my days and experiences in a way that would make me feel less stressed. I think it made me more stressed though.
I read some very encouraging blog posts this morning about giving worries and anxieties over to God. I’ve started asking God not to just take away all my stress and worries but to help me learn from them and to grow stronger.
I’ve always been a very stressed out person but slowly I’ve seen myself growing into a stronger person. The enemy wants you to be down and depressed and overwhelmed by worries and stress. When he cripples you by those things, you aren’t able to live out God’s plans for your life.
It’s not easy to just give all your worries over to God but practice makes perfect.
I hope this post gave you some encouragement. Even the most strong Christians have troubles and worries. You are not alone and if you feel like your stress is too much, the mighty God who can raise people from the dead offers you relief from those burdens.
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is comfortable, and My burden is light.”
Have a great weekend!
