April 1, 2017
It's the first day of April and I pulled 0 Pranks today!
"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."
I really liked the devotional tonight that I read from the Beauty Marks reading plan on Youversion. I really related to it, because it began with talking about how us women seem to have this button in us that is marked "Worry" and for some reason we feel like we cannot control whether that button is on or off, and sometimes the button gets stuck to where it just says "Worry ON."
Lately, I've been more moody. I don't know why. But I definitely feel like my worry button has been glued down and I can't stop worrying! It is so frustrating.
Kristian got his driving license on Thursday afternoon- March 30. And so now I'm always making sure to say "Drive safe, I love you." Every time he goes to drive somewhere.
In the devotional, it talked about how we are supposed to be here to be help in times of need, "ezer kenegdo." We are not just help, and not just a mate, women. We are the help in time of need. And if we are walking around constantly worried and afraid, thinking about ALL OF THE BAD THINGS that could HAPPEN, then how can we help ourselves? Let alone help others!
We were not set here on earth to walk around and worry worry worry all the time 24/7.
God put Adam on the earth, and then he put Eve on the earth, as this ezer kenegdo, help in time of need.
We are so special.
We are meant to be strong.
We are supposed to stand up and look in the face of our fears and laugh.
We are supposed to laugh at whatever is going to happen next, because God is here with us!
And yeah, there are trials and hard times and times when we worry, but during those times, the challenge is to pray and to look up towards God and smile. Laugh. He is strong and we will be okay.
Come on girls, join in the laughter!
Laughter is good medicine isn't it? It feels good to laugh.
So this week, try it. This month, try laughing more, because you don't know what's coming tomorrow.
It's a new month. Let your light shine for everyone to see.
This is something taken from the devotional I read tonight:
"A daughter of God stares unblinkingly into the bright mysterious future, and laughs.
Because He's got this, and He's got us.
