If you are completely wiped out tonight and all you want to do is sit on the couch and not move for an hour (or 3!)…
I get it.
If you still have a load of laundry sitting in the washing machine and you are thinking that it might be easier to just run it again in the morning instead of having to put them in the dryer tonight…
I get it.
If you know you should pack those lunches tonight but can’t bring yourself to make ONE.MORE.MEAL or clean up the kitchen…
I get it.
If you found yourself fighting tears (or giving into them!) today thinking about that friend/child/loved one who is struggling or found yourself fighting tears because YOU are struggling…
I get it.
If you still have a deadline to meet and know you will be working late into the night…
I get it.
If you can’t decide whether you would rather go to bed and get some sleep or enjoy soaking in the silence of a quiet home for just a bit longer…
I get it.
I get it, my friends. I really do. Sometimes what we do feels like it takes a level of strength that we simply don’t have.
But, you know what?
You don’t have to do it all on your own!
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Praying for you tonight dear ones,
Thank you! I am glad that you get it-because I needed it 🙂 Thank you for the prayers and for the reminder.
Thank you for knowing exactly what I need right now!
I’m selling my home and buying another for the first time since my husband passed away….and I’m overwhelmed. I know God is with me, but it helps to be reminded.

All prayers greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!
Taking care of husband who just had open heart surgery, struggling.
I appreciate knowing you and yours are out there.
I went thru that a year and a half ago.. You will get thru it. It takes time and patience. He will get stronger. It took my hubby about 3 months to get back to where he was about 75%. Now, he is at about 95%. Just take it slow, be positive, love him, let him know you are there for him, talk about your feelings, most of all get him to tell you how he feels, They can get real depressed. I am here if ya need to talk. email@example.com. I will keep you in my prayers.

I do not know how you did that, but this was exactly what I needed. Thank you for the prayers also-I sure do need them. Bless you.
Thank you for the prayers…..and the pictures of the flowers! Sitting here on a stormy night and I could use the boost.
Thank you. So kind and thoughtful of you. Much appreciated.
It’s wonderful to know that someone is praying for you- especially for those that know that there may not be anyone else praying for them!
I’m praying for all who’ve mentioned struggling as well-
God Bless You-

I need it tonight. Thank you!
Ha! I left the rinsed dinner dishes in the sink cause I couldn’t bring myself to empty the dishwasher, told the hubby to pick out a pair of socks from the clean, but not folded, pile on his side of the bed and I should have been in bed an hour ago but everyone else so I just neede some time to unwind (after painting for the 4th day on a row). You certainly have me pegged tonight.
Amen to that!
I had a bit of an episode of feeling on the ledge recently that wiped me out! I am getting stronger daily, Easter helped remind me what’s important. Thanks for your reminder, too. Hugs.
Hang in guys, You are strong, loving, capable people. Wake up tomorrow and say 3 positive words before you even start. It will help. But, remember also that laundry, dishes and cleaning are not the important things you need to tend too. Give out hugs and you will feel like a million. Deep breaths.

What uplifting words especially when you need them!!
This post was what I needed, when I needed it. Thank you so much. I am 3 weeks out from a total knee replacement, and while I know I’m doing fine and not in a lot of pain, sometimes just being uncomfortable is overwhelming and I just need to cry and pray.
Someone recently had one and needed no pain meds within a day. Was able to walk without a walker. Did physical therapy but pain free. Now able to fully move and kneel. I pray yours goes so well. A 93 year old friend also did hers in her late 80’s and is so pleased. Praise God. Fear not for I am with you.
Be not afraid.
365 verses on fear. I used these verses and went through the list–good is a grade of A. I became very practical. Honorouble was a judge true is 4+4=8 right is to obey traffic signals pure is the scent of a baby after a bath. Lovely is a sunset. Admirable is my mom growing gardens and making lunches and canning vegetables and fruit and having healthy meals. And I’d start over. Hope this helps✝
“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
Philippians 4:8 NLT
Thank you for praying for me your reader. I never thought of me as a person. I am praying for two bloggers I do not know at all but the Holy Spirit led me to pray. Two other bloggers have corresponded and no not friends but I am praying for them
But yes I’ve needed prayer and God in His mercy gives and gives…from unexpected places. You listened and God used you to put beautiful real flower images and then the lines–you have a child…loved one…friend…struggling…or maybe you…and as I read my heart turned toward each of these dear ones and then it’s hard to admit I’m struggling with my injury–and then the verse. Anew each time as it applied to a new day. Isn’t Gods Word so neat like that???
Please be these women who bring delightful beauty to my reading. I enjoy the posts. Their topics. Their verse. May you strengthen them this day as well. In Jesus name Amen
