I have recently finished a Bible Study Called Captivating - Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul. It was an awesome soul searching Bible Study that truly has changed my life forever. I have found peace in my heart and soul that I have never felt before. I learned a lot about my heart as a women and how I tick. Then above all else God knows how a women works- We work through our hearts.
Why am I going into all this…Wednesday I was in a funk. I could honestly say I might have been in and out of this funk for a couple of days, but Wednesday it hit me like a ton of bricks.
I was feeling overwhelmed with some of the commitments I have obligated myself too. My kids were getting on my very last nerve because things were not going the way I envisioned them to go. On top of that I felt like I was not being a good mom, a good person and things were not clicking in my household. Ever have those days??
By mid-afternoon I said a long prayer to the Lord asking for help getting myself out of this funk.
Well, God heard my hearts request. He knew exactly what I needed and when I needed it. All I can say is God is good.
1- I received in the mail 2 items addressed just to me. The first was a lovely card handwritten and filled with such thoughtfulness and love. It was just the things I needed to hear! I don’t know how she knew it but she did. God was truly sending me a message through her and I am SO GRATEFUL!! Thank you!
2- Then I received a package from the MOPS Organization. It was a book called Life on Planet Mom – a down-to-earth guide to your changing relationships. Uh, BINGO!! This is me, this is what I need. I really should be reading and not writing.
3- Finally, I spent the evening with a dear friend of mine and we went to Grief Share Meeting- Surviving the Holidays. It really did my heart good to go. Thanks for inviting me!
I am amazed God knew exactly what my heart needed. I am feeling so much better then I was yesterday or the day before. I am not sure if it is the time of year or just me, but God heard my heart and knew exactly what I needed even though I did not. I wish I could leave with a great passage from the Bible but I only know 1-2 by heart.
If you are wondering why I am telling you something so personal it is because I know that although it is not spoken we all have these days or moments. All I can say is pray, God is listening and he knows what your heart needs!!
