Less Stressing, More Blessings {Week 5 Recap}

October 8, 2019
"If we are counting our blessings we won

Happy recap, everyone!

Before we end our week let’s do a quick refresh, reviewing some highlights from this week’s reading that help us move toward loving life again.

Topic Summary: Less Stressing More Thanking
This week, we realized our need to stop stressing over the things out of our control and, instead, fully surrender and trust in God. As Tracie said in Love Life Again,

“Believing God is always working behind the scenes enables us to let go of the stress and worry and to love our lives because ‘we know that for those who love God all things work together for good.’” (Romans 8:28 ESV)

We also learned the importance of focusing on the Giver of the gifts and not just the gifts themselves. And how counting our blessings can be crucial in helping us love life because, as Tracie said in Love Life Again,

“If we are counting our blessings we won’t have time to count all our problems.”

Verse of the Week:

“Don’t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Matthew 6:34 NLT

Scripture Memorization:
We’re so close to having our study verse memorized! If you’ve gotten behind, don’t worry. There’s no time frame, so go at your own pace and just keep going! Another thing that helps me is writing it out on a sticky note and posting it above my kitchen sink. That way I can practice as I cook/do dishes. The key with this method is posting it where you’ll see it regularly.

“I came so ______ ____ ______ _____ ____ _______ _____, ______ ____ _____ _____ _____ _____ ______ ___________ ___.” - ______ __:__ (___) 

For Your Weekend:
