For the last few days, I have woke up feeling defeated. Maybe it is a mourning of the dream I thought our marriage would be. A mourning of how I thought life would be. Maybe a fear of the future.
These verses are sticking with me over the last few days.
‘Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. ‘ Matthew 16:24
A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22
‘Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”’ Matthew 11:28-30
