Hello ladies, how's it going? So I was wondering what to share with you guys in this post. As I sit by my beside typing, I just realized that Summer is coming to an end really soon. Honestly, I'm really not a huge fan of Summer. The only thing I love about it is the late and extremely beautiful sunsets. Here, the sun usually sets around 10pm in the peak of Summer. However, I noticed in the past few days that it's starting to get dark around 9:25pm.
This reminds me of only one thing: SCHOOL! This Summer has been my busiest yet. I usually travel somewhere every Summer, but this year I decided not to travel out of Canada to experience it in its fullest. Ummm, right now, I'm not quite sure how I feel about that decision. LOL. I feel really tired and stressed out. Regardless, I am grateful to God to be alive and talking to you guys today. :)

In the kind of world we live in today, it's really easy to be worried and get stressed out about everything. Everyone works so hard. Working hard isn't enough anymore. You have to work twice as hard to keep up with everything. Two Bible scriptures that really put me in my place when I start to worry are:
Philippians 4: 6-7
"6. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Matthew 6: 26-34
"26 Look at the birds in the air. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. 27 You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it. 28 "And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They don't work or make clothes for themselves. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers.30 God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don't have so little faith! 31 Don't worry and say, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?' 32 The people who don't know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33The thing you should want most is God's kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you. 34 So don't worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
When ever I read these texts, I am reminded to just have Faith in God, take off the limitations I set on him, and understand that I will receive what I need not because I'm qualified but because of God's mercy and kindness. I hope you feel the same way too. :)
