I’m keeping my heart and mind on the perfect peace that is Jesus Christ this morning. After a long week, and emotional weekend, I am a little tired and hesitant about the work week before me. But I remember this verse in Isaiah to calm my spirit…
Tackle those anxious thoughts or any sorrow with the peace that comes with trusting in the Lord. I have to lean on this trust. I have been feeling very homesick lately, and visiting Indy this weekend really made me tearful on the way back. When we miss seeing our close family and friends every week, or sometimes everyday, it can be challenging to deal with.
For me, this is my 6th month living down South with my husband, and I truly embrace this new experience, however I am starting to get moments where I just feel a little sad. I miss seeing my Mom every week, niece and nephews, and my best friends live back in my hometown. But it’s ok, because now my husband and I have our little family to grow, and to work on becoming one flesh. I just have to take it one day at a time.
If you can relate to feeling homesickness or sadness, I want to encourage to you to read God’s word for peace of mind. Have a blessed week! CW
