My devotion this morning was very timely (don't you love how God does that?)-it was on discouragement, which is exactly what I have been feeling all morning! I literally have not been at home except to shower and sleep for the past nine days, and my house shows the neglect. It is a chaos of laundry, dirty dishes, mail, trash, and the bathroom...oh my. My oldest two girls are gone, and they are my best help. It is miserably hot up here because we have decided to go without installing the window air conditioners this year. And I have a headache, and I'm hormonal. Ugh.
"Cast all your cares upon him, for he cares for you" 1 Peter 5:7
I am so grateful for a God who loves me, who cares for me, and who willingly carries these burdens that I cannot bear on my own. My circumstances are not changed, but my heart is lighter knowing that he is with me through this day, loving me and sustaining me through it all.
