Devotion 21/2/2016

Sometimes, I find meaningful words/verses/phrases and I do a screenshot of them. But somehow, an idea struck me today and I thought, “Why not just do a weekly Sunday thing?” Just in case the phone dies and the screenshots disappeared *choy!*

Burnt out. That’s what I think I’m experiencing. Complaining and questioning myself. Feeling bad that I cannot give my 100% to my kids. The feeling that I am dropping the ball. It’s horrible.

By God’s grace, I got through the week. Somehow. I even managed to clear some backlogs. Mistook the deadline for the setting of paper so I’m 65% completed with 3 weeks to spare.

I don’t want to talk about cos there’s no point writing negative things here. Positivity, come on!

Praying for another grace-filled, favour-filled and blessed week ahead! May I have the strength, courage and wisdom to get through it safely (: Amen!

How easy it is, Lord, to let the trials of the moment strips us of the memory of Your protection and provision. Praise You, Father, for Your patience and Your unending, unconditional love. Thankfulness is the soil in which joy thrives. – ODB,  14 February 2016

Lord, I realize that I can’t control everything, but I can trust You. Right now, I make a decision to do my best with what You’ve me and leave the rest to You. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life
