Today is Mine.

Monday, May 21, 2012

A friend linked up a devotional this morning on Facebook and tagged me in it because she knows how much I struggle with worry and anxiety. It included a great quote from an amazing lady named Elisabeth Elliot.

"Today is mine. Tomorrow is none of my business. If I peer anxiously into the fog of the future, I will strain my spiritual eyes so that I will not see clearly what is required of me now.
—Elisabeth Elliot"

A great reminder to me that I need to focus on my job today, and not worry about tomorrow or the day after. Those are in God's hands, today is all I need to handle. Nothing more.

Today started way too early, I am feeling pretty tired after a very busy day yesterday. I'm hoping to get out walking this evening once my wonderful husband is home to stay with both boys.

I'm currently trying to figure out Elliott's sleep schedule. He's not sleeping more than 10 hours at night and taking a nap but he's always tired. I don't know if this is a side effect of his seizure medication but he's taken that for at least the last year and more and I don't know if it would just now start impacting him.

Anyways, it's 8:23am and I think he's ready for a nap lol! Time to try different sleep routines for him :)

    Worry and anxiety are both a form of fear. Fear is faith in the devil's ability to harm me or his power to cause something bad to happen. Faith is believing that what God says He will do and there's nothing the devil or the world can do to stop Him from bringing His good will into existence in my life.

    Matthew 6:31-34 "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?" Or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' "for after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

    I love the phrase in verse 32 that says "For your heavenly Father knows"....He knows what you have need of. He will supply your need. He is big enough to take care of all your problems. Don't allow the enemy to get your focus off of how great your heavenly Father is!

    God Bless!
