So Thursday we are in the clear, right? Nope. Not at all. My mom fell down the stairs and it was super scary. Thankfully, she is okay. Just some bruises. It could have been really bad.
Friday I overslept and didn't take Sam to preschool. For those of you who don't know, Sam is a little cling-on with me. He pretty much has to be touching me in some way. It is really hard to school the big ones with him being like that, so we send him to preschool 3 days a week. It really helps.
I work part-time 3 days a week. Work was insane.
I suffered from my night time anxiety issues which kept me up all night almost every night this past week and therefore felt like a zombie.
But guess what? I'm going to #BeGleeful that my daughter is back to her normal self and feeling healthy again. I'm super thankful that she never got dehydrated. My mom could have been badly injured, but she wasn't. God was there. No doubt about it. Oversleeping helped me catch up on rest Friday morning. Work won't be nearly as insane this week. I'm praying the anxiety won't be an issue this week
Here's what I'm clinging to this week.
1 Thessalonians 5: 16
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Romans 12: 12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Psalms 46: 1 God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
Romans 8: 31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
Zephaniah 3:17 (one of my favorites)
For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in your with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
Psalms 29: 11 The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.
Psalms: 13: 5 But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
I'm pretty sure God is telling me to be in constant communion with Him. It will keep me joyful and help me be thankful for all things. If I'm having a hard time, I should be patient and keep on praying. No matter how tough things are, He's going to be right there with me. He is always for there for me. He calms me and loves to see me when I'm happy. He give me strength and peace. He has rescued me. I'm pretty sure I have many things to be gleeful about.
I've been trying to capture some of the gleeful moments of my week. Here ya go!
