On a Monday, just this reminder:
God is for me, more than my laundry.
God sees me, not just my kids’ trail of weekend destruction.
God delights in me, tired eyes and all.
God sings over me, when the baby’s crying, the toddler’s whining, the teenager’s “but why?-ing”
God breathes into me, when I’m all run out of breath from all the drop-offs, back packs, school lunches, car repairs, house moves, work deadlines, laugh and worry lines.
God understands more than I do about tomorrow.
God is comfortable in my chaos.
God is waiting for me at the end of the day.
God holds me. God loves me. God welcomes me into His arms.
God believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things with me and for me.
God is awake when I got to bed tonight.
God is waiting when I wake up tomorrow.
Ready. Delighted. Friend.
Thanks for this. I needed it this morning. Getting used to the summer routine with college boy home got a little cra-cra this weekend. Happy Monday!
Just what I needed this chaotic Monday morning. :-) Thank you
I loved this and so need it this morning and this afternoon and tomorrow morning…….
Ahh.. (sigh). Beautiful. I just felt my heart soar on eagle’s wings.
So many thanks for the the encouraging words that my heart’s to-do list needs to be reminded of every day of the week…and for the beautiful “light in your eyes” that shines through all your pictures and posts!
Proverbs 15:30 – “Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.”
Beautiful. I think I just took a breath now. Thanks.
Thanks, I needed this to start my week. Only 2 weeks left of school…
Such a good reminder when I worry about inviting people over because my house is chaos, my life is chaos, my children are in chaos…. If God is in my hardest moments and with me in my messiest times, then perhaps He can even be felt in my home by another who visits me during these times. I am encouraged to be more invitational and less self-conscious and to let God shine through even my chaos.
Thank you, needed to read that today :)
Oh Lisa, the weekend destruction, indeed! This was an encouragement and a half!
Thanks Lisa Jo! I really needed that today…
Thank you, LJ. xo
Lovely post! God is all of those things for me as well… good to be reminded!!
Like water to my soul.
Now, who doesn’t need a list like this? (Printable, yes?)
Love this! btw- where did you get the necklace in the photo?? -so cute!
Found this at the end of a Monday…needed it today.
