A few days late, I began a photo-a-day challenge on instagram.  I thought I would go ahead and share this challenge with all of you.  The challenge is this:

Day 1: Your Reflection.

I wasn't extremely thrilled to capture my reflection on this particular day.  I was exhausted.  This has been one of the most difficult weeks of my entire life... and I think you can tell on my face.

But the challenge called for my reflection, so here it is:

Also, I would like to share a Bible verse that has stuck out to me on each day of April from now on.  It will either be something that has continuously been brought to my attention over the last week, or it will be something that popped out during my quiet time I'd like to share.

1 Peter 5:7

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

I don't know if any of you is having as difficult of a time as I am with schoolwork, sleep, and schedules, but if you are, this verse is for you.  I have a difficult time placing my faith wholeheartedly in the Lord and that is something I certainly need to work on.  He is so much wiser than I ever will be.  He's holding my life in His hands; He can work things out so much better than I can.

Instead of focusing on stress and negative emotion today, focus on the blessings the Lord has given you.  Cast your anxiety on Him instead of shouldering it on your own.  Life is so much more peaceful when you don't have to deal with the trials by yourself.

Give your stress to Him.  That's what I'll be trying to do today.

I could use some prayers today as I travel nine hours home for Easter... and for an injury I've received that has made even moving pretty painful.  Thanks, friends.

Will you be home this Easter?
