Everyone has there own way of praying and talking with God, and one of my favorite ways to communicate with God is through Journaling. This morning as I was sitting in my quiet place at the lake, I started thanking Him for getting me to the Lake this weekend and for the rain we heard as we were lying in bed before we got up. It was as if God were raining down on us and the peace I felt was so comforting. I then started thanking Him for his presence in my life and in that moment. I’ve been struggling lately with letting go of worries and asked Him to help me trust Him and not worry about anything or anyone else for my peace. It was then that it dawned on me, that God has my back and all I need to do is turn it over to Him and stop stressing about the things that I cannot change or control. Then the phrase ‘Let Go and Let God’ entered my mind. I knew this all along, shoot I tell other people, so why do I need to be reminded all the time? I guess it is always easier when you are living in that moment, but now whenever I start to regress in my worries, I will remember and repeat this phrase, “Let Go and Let God”!
After all, God is the only one in control of our lives and it is in His timing when we will recognize the rewards and all of the puzzle pieces of life will fit together and we will realize the importance of His timing!
For all you ladies over 50, you’ll probably be able to relate….and I’m going to be put it out there just how it is….just because this is real! For all you women who haven’t hit this wonderful age yet, you will and someday you will be able to relate 😅😃😂
When we were teenagers and just hitting puberty, we thought the world was going to end because 😯OMG ‘do I have anything on the back of my pants?’ was always the big topic in the school hallways.😱😰 Then years later, we fall in love, get pregnant, have to deal with morning sickness, and OMG the pain of childbirth.👶🤬 Worse yet, you can’t get pregnant and have to go through test after test and needle after needle, etc.
Then finally, our children are grown and gone and we think yes, finally a good night sleep of no worrying, no phone calls in the middle of the night, ‘Mom, can you pick me up’ or worse yet. You start to settle in…and then one night OMG…you are laying there in bed and you think to yourself, ‘did i wet the bed’? and you feel your underwear and it’s soak, the bed is soaked, but your not sweating. Your chest is dry, so you can’t be sweating, OMG please tell me I didn’t wet the bed.😱 This is awful. So you get up, you go to the bathroom and you literally smell your underwear. 😩🤫😷And with a huge sigh of relief you realize you didn’t have an accident and even though you are the only one who knows, you are so embarrassed.😔🙁 What if HE thinks I wet the bed? 🤔😮You change your underwear, you lay a towel down on the bed because…..well, it’s soaked and you don’t want to lay in that, right? You try to slip back into bed without him waking, cause lord you don’t want him to know you had your first Night Sweat!
Yes, the first of many to come. So this is what they were talking about. Then suddenly those night sweats turn into hot flashes during the day and it feels like you are an oven turned to 400 degrees on the inside and moving to Alaska sounds pretty awesome. So what do you do now?🤔🙄
I’ll tell you what I do and would love to know what you do! First, I thank God I found Young Living and have my oils to turn to in moments like these! Endoflex and Lady Schlerol have become my best friends and so has the Lavaderm Misting Spray! Some swear by Progesterone Plus, but I experienced some mood changes with that. I think I may have used too much of it so need to try a smaller application before I totally rule that one out! I apply EndoFlex to my ankles in the morning, and Lady Schlerol at night on sankles and wrists and back of neck. I always keep Lavaderm in my purse for those occassional spikes in temperature so its handy at all times. I wish I could say I haven’t had an issue since, but I can say it hasn’t been as bad or as often. Thank you Young Living!❤️❤️❤️
Us girls just wanna have fun, right? Well, I hope this helps you get through your evening and if nothing else, maybe a good morning chuckle! 😂😅🤣😂
