I have decided, as of tonight, that I am going to start back up my prayer journal. I used to be so good about writing in it every night, but then I got busy I guess, and just forgot to write in it. I have been stressing out a lot lately, and I realized tonight that I need to give up those worries to God. He controls everything, and he will provide for me, so I shouldn’t be stressing and worrying. Now I know that starting back up regular, formal prayer is not going to magically take away my worry, but it is a step, which is what I need to do. I need to begin to trust God in every aspect of my life, and in order to do that I need to start voicing my worries to him.
I have been fairly stressed and anxious about the future and things like that lately. I know that I shouldn’t be, because my future is in the hands of the Creator. But it is so hard to completely give up that control. I hadn’t used textures in a while, but decided that it would be appropriate for this picture to give a sense of nostalgia.
Terribly lame picture I know. Everything is due Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for me, and so my head is spinning. Not to mention getting my drivers license renewed in time and so many non school related things that I need to get done this week. I had been working all day, and then fell asleep accidentally, and when I woke up I realized I didn’t have a picture. I wasn’t going to take one, but was making my bed and decided the wrinkles could look alright.
Really creative picture and title, I know. I’m just feeling really drained. It is the last couple weeks of school, so I have a ton of projects and papers and tests, and then things to get figured out and ready for this summer and next year on top of it all. And then I can’t sleep on top of all that. Yay. And I don’t even have a relaxing summer to look forward to.
