Favorite Quote

I have lots of favorite quotes – a whole board of them on Pinterest plus post-its everywhere in the house. This is the one that grabbed me today:
It’s Psalm 34: 17-18. I can’t say my spirits are crushed, but they are pretty damn crumpled right now.  Maybe my goals aren’t the right ones. They feel right. Basically I just want to provide the bare necessities for my family. And I realize I can’t do it without God’s help.  And though I’m not a patient person by nature this is a battle I’ve now been fighting for five years.

But others have worse problems. I’ll never even dare to think I’ve hit rock bottom because believe me, it can always get worse. So tonight I’ll count my blessings, forgive the asshats who annoyed me today, and pray for small blessings tomorrow. Then I’ll get up and do it again, trusting that the Lord is close, and that rescue is in my future.

I’ll be linking up with Mama Kat’s Writers’ Workshop on Thursday, and hopefully finding some more uplifting or entertaining quotes there!

And if you’re looking for more spiritual posts check out Obstinate Hope, where Kerri and I blog about what keeps us going while fighting chronic illnesses.

  1. I have always found that the best way to get through tough times is to remember that others have it so much worse. It makes me thankful for what I have and puts my woes in perspective. It helps me carry on.
