Just Breathe

Well hello there! it has been quite a while since i've posted anything but oh how i have missed you oh so terribly much!

Life is crazy- there is so much going on between school and ASB, uprising and high school group, family, friends, boyfriend, job... oye vay!! it is such a balancing act but in the crazy busy times of life i see Christ so much. it struck me towards the end of last school year when i was anxious and stressed and worried and stressed and exhausted and stressed.
 SLAP! it hit me...

Why was I trying to find peace anywhere other than Christ? I had been trying to find rest in physical things and totally forgot to look to the cross and the peace that is always offered to us.

I mean don't get me wrong- catching up on that blog that you haven't read for weeks is great and so is sitting down with a cup of coffee or tea (or whatever beverage you delight in) but for me, often times my head just keeps going! and then I stress out more because i'm not doing something that is on my list.

So all of this to say that I was reminded to run to Jesus and JUST BREATHE Him in when I'm feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. so as this school year gets off to a running flying start, take time to sit for 5 minutes and just talk to God or listen for Him.

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 is always one that I go back to time and time again. I will sit and as much as my mind wants to go to a thousand different places, I just repeat this verse over and over again. It may sound nuts, but for me, it helps.

Breathe in... Breathe out... repeat if/when necessary!

Praying for all of you and your weeks, until next time
