Free Ride

I am humbled by my King and how he loves me. Nick and I have been having some stressful times lately. Law school, finances, and anything else you can think of! Nothing our God can not handle!! We have been truly blessed by His provisions and love for us. A couple of weeks ago I felt God was preparing me for something. Something? Anything! My prayer time was very simple, "I'm listening?"
It was not till later when I went to my M.O.M.S. group at church and was blessed by one of the older women's testimonies. She used the verse Phil. 4:6 & 7; "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything , by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
I have been praying this verse constantly. It has been comfort in my time of freaking out. When He is in control, His peace is overwhelming. I know and believe that He does work all things for good for those who love Him. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. I can see it! It is very far away and I am tired. But I no longer have to walk. I never had to walk!

Thank you for reminding me.

Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT."

This passage always calms me during stressful times.
