Hello, hello – Happy Thursday! Only one more day until Friday, and that is something to celebrate, isn’t it? 🙂 I’m really looking forward to some fun plans this weekend. Perhaps that is why this week has felt longer than others this school year. 🙂 Do your weeks ever feel a bit overwhelming – like they loom ahead of you, dropping to-do lists in your path? This happens to me when I think a bit too much and life feels extra big and heavy (whether or not there’s a good reason for it!). Here are the Bible verses I cling to in those moments.
You will keep in perfect peace she whose mind is steadfast, because she trusts in You.
I, even I, am He who comforts you.
Who are you that you fear mortal men,
the sons of men, who are but grass,
that you forget the Lord your Maker,
who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth?
When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
Your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
Your consolation brought me joy.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
My hope is that these verses which bring me solace during the week can offer you some encouragement as well!
