quote of the day

tomorrow we are headed to illionis!!!
*insert giant smile here*
i cannot wait to see the rest of the fam fam!

i also wanted to post a quote of the day. it's one that i've been having trouble with recently.
i tend to worry.. a lot. especially about the future.
how am i going to pay off my student loans? what i'm i gonna do when i graduate? will i find a job semi close to home? what if i suck at teacher? where am i supposed to meet nice, young, gentlemen after i graduate if i'm teaching in a female dominated workplace? how am i supposed to know who "the one" is? what if i never find anyone? what am i eating for breakfast tomorrow?

ok i kid about the last one (sort of).

but i was doing my daily devotional last night (ok, honestly it's not as daily as it needs to be, but i'm working on it.) and it was talking about how we have 1,440 minutes in a day and it asked the question, "do you value your relationship with God enough to spend a few of those minuets with Him?"

it got me thinking

it went on to say that the best way we could ever start our day is not by drinking the perfect cup of coffee, or doing 20 jumping jacks, but to spend our first few moments with Him. after reading this i was inspired to look up "future" in my bible. it brought me to Matthew 6: 25-34 but more specifically to verse 34.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own."

that was just what i needed to hear. i've always known that He had my back and i always knew that He has my life mapped out i just need to hear it again and be reassured. that's not to say that i'm not going to worry ANYMORE, totally and completely. but i have to leave my fears and worry to the Lord. He knows what he's doing.

so that's the story behind the quote of the day.
i promise i won't have such a lengthy explanation for the next one!
Much Love!
