Good Morning

Instead of writing in my journal this morning, I am sitting here drinking my iced coffee as my fingers type out the letters to what is going on in my heart.

Yesterday was a crummy day. I didn't feel well and there has been a circumstance in our life that is requiring a whole lot of faith, obedience, and perseverance.

I went to bed last night feeling emotionally and spiritually drained. I wear myself out when I once again, I focus on the circumstance instead of the One who is in control of everything.

This morning, I woke up to my husband sitting on the bed next to me. Before he went off to work, we sat and talked and I felt that glimmer of hope.  In our room where the sun was lighting up the room, I believed and knew that His mercies are new every morning.

God you are good and faithful. There hasn't been a time in my life when you haven't been.

As I go about the rhythms of life today, be the One who sets my heart on the truth that we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Keep my eyes on you, Jesus. On You.


  1. I could say the same exact thing. Well, it's like someone else was writing my feelings. I will say a prayer for you. I'm praying a lot lately. :) XOXO, cat (

  2. Praying for your situation. Keep your eyes focused on Him and let His love overwhelm you today!

  3. Hey Christy,

    Its been a while since we have "talked" and I miss ya! I will definitely be praying for your family!!!


  4. Love ya my bloggie-sister! And you KNOW...I'm praying! <3

    God is SO merciful...and I'm so glad that they are NEW each morning. :-)

  5. Thanks for a reminder that we all need!

  6. How easy it is to get caught up in the circumstances. I can say that from experience. But when I keep my focus on Jesus, it changes everything. I hear your heart and know that you know that too. May today be a good day for you!

    Blessings and love,
