31 days of happiness - day 5

Day 5

A few weeks ago I posted a review about Unveiled Wife's amazing 30 day devotional and recently I had the opportunity to share my thoughts on "Day 17 - Wisdom Calls Out". 


SO so weird to watch myself on video but I love that I was able to share Jacob & I's experience of this whole "14/14 marriage" and I hope that other wives can be encouraged by it because I know so many other couples face similar challenges!

Daily happiness tip # 5: Learn to trust God. Learn to lean on Him. It's so tempting to try and take things into our own hands but this never turns out pretty. I do the daily Jesus Calling devotional & yesterday there was a statement that struck me - "As soon as a worry or problem comes to your heart - Tell Me about it." Learning to trust him with all our worries, troubles, pain, or joy is how we become like him. The more we reach out to him, the better we will know him. He wants to be close to you, all you need to do is open your heart. The love of Jesus is something I'm continually learning and understanding. Some days I wonder, "how could someone so mighty love me...something so disappointing??" He died for our sins because He loves us unconditionally & thinks we're worthy no matter what...even when we don't believe it. 

1 Corinthians 1:25 - "The most foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God's weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength."
