Give Your Burdens to God

Last night, I repeated the same prayer over and over. Please don’t let this be my calling. Please don’t let this be my calling. Even though that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, it did in my head and it was overwhelming to say the least. I told God he was going to have to give me the strength to continue to trust in him no matter what comes my way.

Who do You Need to Forgive?

Today the struggle to forgive is real. Last week, in my Moms Group we were discussing a chapter in “Out of the Spin Cycle” by Jen Hatmaker. Some of it was about forgiveness. I felt as though nothing was hindering me when it came to forgiving others until a few days later this wave of resentfulness invaded my mind.

I cannot believe it is 2015. I live in the future. Where are the hover boards and shoes that tie their own laces? I’m not going to make unrealistic expectations by making resolutions then feel guilty of all my failures, but plan to make this year the best one yet. Who’s with me?
