Last year, I pretty much worked through Christmas and Spring Break. I was so stupid; I will never be able to get that time back. This year, I intentionally took a break from work to spend time with my family, and it was such a blessing.
So this past week, we laid grass sod in our backyard on Monday and then went camping in a borrowed popup trailer in southern New Mexico Tuesday through Thursday.
Tuesday night, the wind blew fiercely, and a few times Beau woke up afraid in the middle of the night. I told him that he didn't need to be afraid because I was with him.
I wish I had that perspective with my Heavenly Father. I don't have to be afraid because He is always with me.
Joshua 1:9 NIV
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
Heavenly Father, please help me know that you are always with me. And please deliver me from fear. May I walk with you and trust you to lead me, provide for me, and protect me. I love you, and I ask in the name of Jesus Christ.
