Trusting Deeper

Devotional, Divorce, Single Mom

Free 1 2 Timothy 1:7 Scripture Printable

We can rest in the shelter of His wings.
Give Him your burdens.

“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

Sometimes choosing to trust Him can’t be based on what we think or how we feel because everything around us can seem to be defeating us. Everything can seem to be crashing. But trusting God is a choice, and often it’s a choice of faith. Of choosing not to trust in what I see in front of me and believing His words are true.

Joseph spent 2-10 years in prison before the Lord let Him go, perhaps a lot of humbling and learning to trust happened during that time. Letting the roots grow deep.


Microwave Oatmeal

Divorce, Single Mom
peaceful girl in nature

Today is beautifully, peacefully boring. The work that is being done is silent. I’m not spending money, I’m not eating junk, I’m not searching for a new boyfriend, I’m not looking for more. We are moved in, the internet is connected :), school begins tomorrow. The girls are being lazy and so am I. It’s a perfect last day of summer.

Microwave Oatmeal:
1/2 cup oats
1 cup of water
pinch of salt
maple extract
sweetener of choice

Microwave in an extra large bowl (for boiling oats grow) for 3 minutes, top with yogurt, maple extract, cinnamon, and sweetener of your choice.
