Brain Dump

There are so many thoughts swirling around in my mind today. When do we buy a house? What part of town? Do we stay in an apartment for another year? How much each month do we know we can save? Let's travel, but where? How do we save for a house and travel too? What do I blog about today? Why haven't I created an editorial calendar? You need to do that, but when?! What am I going to cook for the Super Bowl that I can eat? (insert pathetic laugh) AHHH.

So much stuff. Filling my mind and kinda driving me crazy; making me super anxious. The house thoughts a larger than the Super Bowl food, but they are still taking up space in my mind today. But every time I start to stray into those thoughts I pray. I turn my anxiety into prayer and the relief is immediate.

Mike and I started something this week that we have been talking about since day one of our marriage. Having a daily bible study, be it 5 minutes or 30, and being together in the word. Since Mike's new job, we have changed up our workout routine. We used to shower at the gym and go to work from there. Now, we are able to come home, shower there and cook. That little shift has changed the dynamic of our days. We still get the time for each other in the morning, but we also have the time to cook breakfast together and have quiet time. At first, we would cook and watch the news and Today show, but this week we woke up and changed. It was our time to create and we did it.

I have turned those questions from above into prayers and am letting him handle them. My focus has shifted from earthly to eternal.

John 14: 1-2
"Jesus said, "Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me."'

Proverbs 3: 5-6
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and don't depend on your own understanding. Remember the LORD in all you do and he will give you success."
