Slowing Down

Well, the stress of the beginning of the school has begun to slow…just begun though:) 

It’s crazy how different the beginning of the year can be from the rest of the year!  Honestly, I’m a little anxious about progress reports that go out next week.  And I’ll leave you wondering about why, but if you think of me (or perhaps, right now) would you please pray for me?  I’m desperate for His help this next week.  I need incredible favor with parents during this time of transition from tradition teaching and grading, to do what I’m doing right now.  I need others to be patient with, as I grow, and as I often feel sorta clueless…blindly walking forward. 

When I have too many things going on, I don’t prioritize well, and I go numb about everything.  People are always like, "well, there’s still going to be work tomorrow, so you’ll have to prioritize," and it seems to me like those people have no clue what I’m dealing with here.  I’m thinking I just don’t handle stress too well.  How’s that for honesty?  I really think that I just plain stink at it.  (God, help my future husband!)  I guess I’m not horrible at it, but I’m definitely not great at it.

So, my prayer verse for the night…which is not simply a cliche or a "positive thinking" tool…God’s Word is real and His promises are real and He’s proven that to me in the past, so He won’t let me down.  (Thanks, God, for caring so much about me!)

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
