do not worry.

 This is where I'm at right now. I'm in that awkward stage of life. Where I have figured myself out (for the most part) I know what I want, but I'm just waiting on God's perfect timing. For everything. I'm finishing up my fourth year of college and now I'm working on getting into Nursing School. I've worked really hard to get to where I'm at and I can't lose my focus. However, that does not mean I should neglect time with the Lord. He comes first!

Each day I try to look around and count my blessings. I know that they can be taken away in an instant. I'm trying not to worry. And I'm more importantly trying to lean on God and let Him guide, gaurd, and direct me. I lose too much sleep over these things. I shouldn't. I'm in college! This should be THE MOST exciting, fun time of my life...Confession: I haven't been in my Word lately. I need to set aside more time to read His word. All of His ANSWERS- His DIRECTIONS are right infront of me!! And I'm not even paying attention to them! So here are a few that I found encouraging today.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavanly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" -Matthew 6:25-27

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." -Proverbs 3:6

"Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." -Matthew 6:34

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog-I really appreciate it!

I love these verses in Matthew about not worrying. Thanks for posting them. I have lots going on in my life and plenty I can worry about. I really needed this reminder to leave it all in God's hands.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Hayley! I just read your comment over on Domesticed Bliss, and thought I'd tell you about the Windy Poplars Exercise Club I just started this week on my Blog Frog Community. It's for accountability and encouragement for those of us who desire to be more diligent about exercise and healthy eating. It is for any level and any goal. For weightloss or not, just to feel like you have some other sisters walking beside you through the journey. If you're interested, here's the link: - and my blog is: if you'd like to read a little post I did about it today. We'd love to have you join us! Oh, and your blog is really lovely - I've enjoyed my time here :-) Hope you're having a great day, ~Kristin from Windy Poplars

Hi Hayley! Here is a little tutorial about Blog Frog - I know, I'm new to it too! There will be many discussion that you can choose to participate in, or some people may just choose to follow one (for example the Windy Poplars Exercise Club) - I think the best way to "keep up" with the discussion is to click "get replies by e-mail" or something to that effect. That way you don't have to check back to the actual blogfrog site to see if people have commented back or anything. Of course you can also access the site through my homepage - and it does post recent activity there as well. We're all learning together :-) Welcome aboard!

Whoops! Forgot to post the tutorial link! Sorry about that:

That has been on my heart lately too! My favorite words from Scripture have been "Rest and Wait patiently!"

I so struggle with this but conforting words help! :)
