Moving Forward

via Pinterest

 I didn't post yesterday because I was in a huge funk due to some really disheartening news that my husband and I received on Monday.  I've been crying and feeling sorry for myself all day, and I've had enough of it. I have a ton of blessings in my life, and I need to remember how fortunate I am, even if I have had a setback.

It's so easy to only cling to God when things are difficult. I'm guilty of that, but I'm determined to stop doing it. I read this in the Bible last night:

"Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God...
By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life. " (Psalm 42:5,8) 

Tomorrow, hopefully I'll be back to my normal self!


  1. I'm so sorry you received bad news. I certainly hope everything works out alright. And I'm inspired by your strong and positive attitude, even in the face of setback.

  2. I agree with Katie. And I am also guilty of only clinging to the Lord in hard times. He is so so good, all the time. I think what you are doing is the best possible response- reflecting on all you have to be thankful for and all your blessings. I was going through a similar experience and blogged about it. TO see what I found in the Bible, etc click here-

    Hope it helps.


  3. I'm so sorry about the bad news. Crying and feeling sorry for yourself are natural reactions and can be therapeutic, so don't beat yourself up. You seem like a very strong and insightful person -- I think these qualities will help you.

  4. I hope everything is ok Michelle! Try to stay strong and positive:)

  5. I feel ya, girl...this is a sucky time of year to get news like that, too )c: Here's hoping that it passes quickly and you can enjoy your holiday (c:

  6. A big hug to you!! Hope you are feeling better! xo
