It’s officially Friday, almost the weekend, and very close to summer! I don’t know about you, but I’m in need of a summer break, and today I officially finished my Sophomore year. I honestly can’t believe I’m finished! This particular year has been especially busy and a little hard to juggle. I’m an organizer and a list-maker. However, I might be the world’s worst procrastinator… Needless to say, making myself be productive and stay on top of assignments amidst my busy schedule has been a challenge.
You might be able to relate, or maybe you are opposite of me 😉 but regardless, I’d say we could all use a breather. Today, life easily seems to drag us along. In addition to school, there are so many other commitments plaguing our undivided attention : sports, hobbies, church commitments, ect. So if your feeling a little stressed, then I hope today I can encourage you!
Here is a passage out my devotional this morning:
“I’ve loved you since the beginning. I formed you in your mother’s womb. I knew you before you existed, so you can trust that I know what’s best for you. You can trust that I know how to guide you into maturity and build character in you worthy of heavens delight. Love your life today and appreciate My hand leading you. I’m appointing you to a place of safety and contentment. Many afflictions can beat at the doors of my chosen ones, but I deliver you from each threat.”
~Talk to me, Jesus by Marie Chapman
Here are some passages that went along with it:
Psalm 34:19, 139:10; Jeremiah 1:5
Today, as you go into the weekend, just remember that God knows you, and He wants you to trust Him. The God of the universe wants to carry your burdens so you don’t have to! So unload the stress that plagues you, and lay it at His feet. Enjoy your life today, tomorrow, and everyday!
