Is it just me or has it just been one of those days  weeks.  It seems I am allowing stress to not only enter my life but stay as long as it likes.  I am letting the smallest and most pity things get me all worked up.  I    am tired but I can't sleep.  I cannot focus or get motivated for anything.  This is stress taking its toll on me.  It is the devil trying to dull my shine.  It is me trying to rely on myself and my own understanding.

Today is day one of the challenge and what a coincidence the topic is stressed.  I am always so amazed how God works.  You see when I created this challenge I just randomly put each topic with a day...who would of ever known that I would be struggling with stress so much on today....God did!

  He knew I would be feeling overwhelmed and letting stress get the best of me.  He knew I would need this challenge for this day to lift me back up.  And then there is the devil,  he sees how excited I am about this challenge and spreading Gods love and His word.  The devil is trying to tear me down.  He wants me to fail, but I am NOT going to allow him to dull my shine.
I am going to keep shining to glorify my Heavenly Father.  

So while I may feel tempted to let my stress bring me down I am choosing God to bring me back up.  I am going to trust in Him with all my heart.  I know He has great plans for me and He is always with me.  I will not lean on my own understanding but will submit to Him.  

{I feel better already!!!!}
