This post (August 19th) at Holy Experience is what I've been thinking about a lot lately. The chaos of our crazy life with 5 people (and the stuff, schedules, stress, emotions, choices, heartbreaks, etc. that go along with them) has been wearing on me. I have been terribly unhappy lately--feeling overwhelmed and under--appreciated and like less of a person than I (deep down) know I am. Haven't we ALL felt that way at some time in our lives?
I came across this post this morning and felt an instant uplift because I have been thinking along the same lines. Ever since our stake conference last weekend, I've had so many thoughts running through my head. Mostly about scripture study, prayer, conversion and turning our lives over to God--completely. It is interesting that it coincides perfectly with our preparations to sell our house and move because we are completely following promptings from the spirit. He is guiding us down this path. We don't know what it holds or what the outcome will be, but we feel peace and trust Him. It's been an amazing experience so far. And I feel the hope beginning to return to my heart.
Have a great day everyone!
