Sometimes it is hard

Life isnt always perfect. Sometimes we have set backs. Sometimes, we , or I feel as though my professional life and my home life couldnt be more different.

I need to serve notice on sin.

I need to let go…I am hurt…I acknowledge the hurt I feel, even if my husband wont acknowledge it. I need to let go of the hurt I feel…. and the sin that caused it… even though I dont feel heard. I need to leave it to Jesus.

Dog days…

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.
Proverbs 12:25 NIV

I am a hot mess, but speed intervals were awesome! Today was a 1 mile jog, followed by 1000m fast run (7 mph for me); then a 1000m walk (4 mph) x 8.

I figured 1000 m to equal 0.062 miles, which isnt much at 7 mph. I would love to get to 7mph for a normal run…..

Keep coming back to this verse.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Romans 12:12‭-‬18 NIV
https://bible.com/bible/111/rom.12.12-18.NIV

Over the last year, I have come back to this verse often. I return for different reasons. Sometimes it is due to needing the reminder to

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Other times, it has been to remind me to

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

And to

not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone

Today though, it is to remember that it is appropriate to mourn with those who mourn…

A coworker lost her husband last night. Our entire team is mourning with her.
