This week, while packing, cleaning, keeping kids going, running a household, saying goodbye to people and places we love, and finding our next place to live- I have had moments where I felt completely overwhelmed. When I feel that way I know that my spirit needs nourishment so that my spirit can press forward and lead my body. The surest way to nourish our spirits is to dive into the scriptures.
This week, I felt peace and encouragement from the Lord as I read the scriptures. I was reminded that I don’t need to do all things on my own and that by all these small daily things I am doing, great things are going to come.
I know the scriptures are the word of God. I know that when we give our effort and time to read them and to listen to Him, He gives us peace, encouragement, and strength to keep going.
I love feeling nourished and strengthened every day when I take time to read His word every day.
