Yesterday was wild. It was just one of those days where it was one surprise after the next leaving me totally speechless (which is hard to do!). All day my prayer was just "Father, steady my heart...just keep me steady...You are my rock..." SO to have a snow day today was a huge blessing. I was able to do all my favorite things! 1) Wake up with no alarm (even though it's still somewhere between 6-7am), Spending time with my handsome life companion as we both spend quality time with our Heavenly Father so we can learn, grow, and be more like Him.
My time with the Lord continued in 2 Corinthians. Remember how yesterday was all about Paul's hardships? Well, today was all about Paul's joy! I don't think it's a coincidence either that where I have been in my journey reflects where Paul has been as I read the Word. I have been going through the hardships...you remember the last posts, right? Feeling like I couldn't get it right, feeling lost and unsure of my purpose, looking at God and crying out "What on earth am I doing here?!?" Well, He reminded me how despite the hardships, He is still Lord over all and He allows these moments to continue molding me in His image. This morning I was filled with his peace and joy. Do you know where a huge source of it comes from? See if you can catch it in my Bible picture above! Community. There is something about extending words of encouragement to one another that can turn a person's sorrow into joy. So I want to take a moment and thank those who have been such an encouragement to me and helped me remember to stay focused on Christ and to just let him love me. Love you guys!
All that digging into scripture and prayer made me hungry (don't judge). So, I topped the morning off with my favorite waffles :) -Recipe is under the Fitness Tab. This snow day will continue with some healthy baking, sweaty work outs, and snuggling up to my favorite books (or movies...let's be real)! I will post later under Fitness about the workouts/baked goodies. Have a safe, warm, and FUN Snow day :)
