Well - we made it through another week!! Thanks for those of you who shared ideas. After a great week of VBS, we'll be hitting the pool again and going to Hawaiian Falls for the first time. Water, water and more water!!
I think I've made it over my summer slump. I wish I could say that I won't slump again but the truth is - it happens from time to time. I think a dark cloud must roll in and settle directly over my head because that's what I feels like......and I hate it.
Most of you know me as a pretty up beat kind of person - crazy at times and excitable often -but what you probably don't know is that I am also familiar with a little gloom and doom. Pre-marriage (but while dating Erik - bless him) I experienced a season of depression and it rocked my world. My symptoms could have been read straight out of a text book. I was in a "bad way" as one of my friends put it.
I am about 10 years on the other side but still acquainted with that "feeling" of falling under every now and again. Is that Satan trying to drag me down? One of his tactics to get my eyes off the goodness of God and back on "poor, pitiful me"? Or is it just a gentle reminder from God that I desperately need him every second of every day? I honestly don't know. But what I do know is that God is "over and in and through it all"....and in that I will safely rest.
Ever been there?
I'm praying for you all right now - that God would show himself to you in a sweet, personal way today! Be looking for it - God never misses out on an opportunity to love on His beloved!!
