I thought I was having huge roller coaster emotions before we left Virginia. I had no idea what was in store. Last night was a bad night. The culmination of lots of things. My self esteem took a huge blow. I didn’t sleep.
Last week, on this very day I wrote this verse on Hanan’s hand…
Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version)
6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
It helped her. In fact I caught her writing it over and over again in her notebook. The funny thing is, I think I’m the one who needed to hear it and memorize it and put it on my heart. Just because I come from a long line of worriers doesn’t mean that I should take up the habit. A long time ago Phillipians 4:13 was my mantra. I think I need to pick it up again.
I was in the middle of anxiousness and worry, trying to decide what to do next wondering if things would get better when I got the little email that said I won. It could have been a candy cane or a button and I would have been ecstatic. Just seeing those little words picked me up. Well, that and good strong cup of coffee followed by a Diet Dr. Pepper soon to be followed by a cup of Starbucks if I have anything to say about it.
