Some time last month, I was a bit overwhelmed with everything that was on my plate. Sickness, a stressful situation at home, and additional work projects I had taken up were taking their toll on me. I realized that I needed some time to just quiet my spirit and spend time with the Lord.
I took a day off work, completely shut down my usual online activities and spent some solid time at the feet of my Maker. At the end of the day, my mind was rested and I was more at peace than I had been in a long time. I wrote a list of affirmations for myself that day, that I believe, were inspired by God. I know that you too may be going through a stressful situation in your own life… I pray this will be a blessing to you.
