Whirlwind. That's how I would describe most of my days. There are few moments of calm, quiet, and rest. With two teeny girls, my only hope for calm, quiet, or rest is what I call NAP OVERLAP or as seen on my Instagram #twonappinggirls. I have learned not to expect it, but to be thankful for it and use it wisely when I get it!
January is quickly coming to an end and here I am, with my New Years post. Yep. Whirlwind.
Each year, I commit to praying a verse or passage from Scripture for Tyler and myself. This year, I also decided to prayerfully select verses for the girls, too. This year, I will be praying...
For myself :: "Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things, and give me life in your ways." -Psalm 119:35
Oh how I long to seek God above all else and find life in Him alone. It is so much easier said than done with a sinful heart and in a fallen world. So I'll pray.
For Tyler :: "But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires." - Romans 13:14
Walking in the Spirit is hard when exhaustion is a key player. My husband serves our family well and works HARD. I know that while he is on the "front lines" so to speak, Satan will not waste an opportunity. So I'll pray, for protection and strength.
For Peighton :: "Keep my words and treasure up my commandments with you...write them on the tablet of your heart." - Proverbs 7:1-3
What a joy it is to hear my biggest little talk about Jesus! My prayer is that His words would be engraved on her young heart.
For Brylee :: "You are precious in my eyes and honored, and I love you." - Isaiah 43:4
Sweet baby Brylee. I hope that as she catches glimpses of just how much she is loved by God!
I'm hopeful for the year ahead. Anxious for rest (sleep Brylee, sleep!). Excited for the adventures God has for our family. Eager to deepen and develop friendships. And thankful for another year of growing in the Lord. 2017, let's go!
