This is my new profile picture on Facebook 🙂
Things looked a lot different for my husband and I a year ago. You see those curves on the edges of our mouths there?… Well, they started curving downward when we were together. I let myself focus on everything that was lacking in our life. After eating a meal with a friend they mailed me a card to say thanks and wrote a note in it saying ‘Lean into Him and each other.’ It’s on our refrigerator. I needed that reminder, because at the end of the day, I only want to care about what God thinks.
I realized then that my discontent coincided with me taking my focus off of God.
I love this from Lysa Tykerst:
‘If we get wrapped up feeling anxious about whatever is lacking in our life (finances, relationships, etc..) and forget to be self-controlled and alert, we are prime targets for Satan to usher us right away from God. We start doubting God, doubting His ability to really be able to provide and justifying our way right into sinful patterns. We lower our standards in ways we never thought we would.
Oh sweet sister, if you don’t have a friend who can speak truth into your heart, let me be a voice of reason and encouragement…
Remember who you are. Remember Whose you are. And never compromise. God has a plan for you. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He CARES for you! (1 Peter 5:7)’
I pray this encourages you, as it did me.
