Wow, where did the time go?! I can't believe that this school year is already finished! As I am looking back on the year, I realized that I spent a lot of my time stressing over this year. Stressing over school, friends, boys, my job, and just about everything under the sun. Now that I finally have some time to relax I am laughing at myself for being so stressed and worried when God has it all taken care of!
In case you are having a stressful moment(s) and need a reminder that God has everything in his hands, here are some lovely verses that have helped me through exams and just about everything that I have been worrying about:
- Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad. Proverbs 12:15
- Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. Philippians 4:6
- And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Jesus Christ. Philippians 4:19
By stressing over little details in my life I wasn't able to focus on the big picture. Thankfully, I was able to pay attention to the Good Lord when I was facing times of extreme difficulty during the year. By putting my trust in him, I received four awards at the end of the year banquet. A huge praise considering all the mental break-downs and tears that occurred throughout the year. It's so amazing to realize that God is in control and has each and every one of us going in the right direction towards something amazing. We just have to trust in him.
