Remember, the Lord forgave you so you must forgive others.
Most of all,
let love guide your life..."
What day more fitting to talk about love? Maybe this post isn't the most traditional of Valentine's day posts, but it's on my heart so I guess that means it matters here.
This time of year in my faith is a time of reflection. In effort to find more peace, balance, and positivity in my life - strengthening my faith life is pretty key. It's not something I talk about on here a lot because it often makes me uncomfortable so I can only imagine how others may feel... but, alas, here we are. Talking Jesus.
So often I am my own worst enemy. There are not many mistakes that I have made, no matter how long ago, that I don't still beat myself up about. I am sensitive and take things hard. I get bogged down in self-doubt and uncertainty. I have a hard time giving up control.
So that bible verse above? It's getting to me. It's resonating in so many different ways, and I cannot get it out of my head.
"Let love guide your life"
Let love for who you are and what you do guide you through the day. Let love for your spouse and your children guide you through the hard times. Let love for God ease your mind and and soften your heart.
let love guide your life.
These words are going to be my theme for now. I'm hoping to come out the other end of this season of Lent a stronger, more fulfilled me.
Oh, and I also gave up Twitter and Instagram for 40 days. Yes, I must be batshit crazy. I am already having withdrawals... I plan to fully take advantage of the Sunday cheat rule (all the good Catholics do it!). I'm hoping that its difficulty will force me into prayer and the elimination of the distraction will help me to be a more present wife and mother! Wish me luck!
