trusting & believing

Hello Beautiful People

I hope you’re all well!

Today’s post is just a short encouragement for any of you that may be feeling worried, anxious, stressed or even just in need of a pick-me-up.

Let’s Finally Blog

Tomorrow is the start of something I have been dreading for as long as I can remember, exams. Needless to say, exams are never fun. I hate feeling stressed and pressured and that’s exactly what exams do to me.

Today I found myself sitting in the garden, sipping some tea and just letting the fact that exams start tomorrow set in. It’s a bitter-sweet situation. I’m happy that as fast as the exams came around, I’m praying they’ll end just as fast. Of late I’ve just been feeling so overwhelmed and trying to do everything in my own strength and, by the end of the day I’ve been feeling so defeated.

That was until I was reading my bible last night and found a verse that applied to me & my situation perfectly.

Proverbs 3:5&6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. But in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

I’ve read this before plenty of times but I don’t think it’s ever applied to me as perfectly as it does right now. It made me realise that the reason why I was feeling so down & overwhelmed was because I was trying to achieve things in my own strength and not trusting God. He is the only one who can give me peace about my exams, after all, he is the prince of peace.

I need to take a step back, cast my cares on him and believe he will help me through the next two weeks. I know that when these exams end I will be able to give thanks and thank God for his help, knowledge, understanding and helping me persevere.

I hope that no matter what you’re going through right now, weather you’re feeling stressed or not this post helped you in anyway at all. I hope your week ahead is a great one.

I’m thinking & praying for you all

Sarah
