Hey guys !! Happy Thursday! Anyone know what day of quarantine it is at this point? I lost track and somedays I don’t even know what day it is! But let me tell you, quarantine has been a roller coaster and I’m tired of the ups and downs!
However, I have great news! Lately I have been praying for another writer. GUESS WHAT!! We are going to have a friend join us shortly! I’m so excited for what she has in store! It’s awesome, she will post biweekly and her name is Brylee! I met her on OB, but I’m not gonna say anymore about her. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up!
Today, however, I am just going to try and encourage you during this craziness because I know I have been losing hope in a lot of things. It just seems like loads and loads of let downs with some good things.
One good thing, is I PICKED MY ROOMIE for college!! My roommate is basically me, just from Indiana! We say the same goofy sayings and she’s super happy and positive. We both have been in a long-term relationship and I’m so excited that I got to know her and the fact that she can be my roommate is a blessing from God! Because the week before we both had been praying to find a roomie
But, I feel like I keep getting down on myself during quarantine. It has been very hard for me to just try and stay positive and be happy. The one thing that has helped me get through the last few days of quarantine honestly was reading my Bible and I came across this verse:
“A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
- Proverbs 17:22 NASB
I read this and I kind of thought, ‘OK keep me healthy from corona I’m gonna keep a joyful heart.’
I know that’s kind of cheesy, but it’s honestly helped me the last few days. Having a joyful heart has made me be more energized and wanting to spend time with my family rather than just hiding in my room! My joyful heart has been my medicine to keep me from falling into depression.
I hope that each and everyone of you understand that quarantines sucks, but we got to get through this and there’s no reason to give up because OUR GOD IS GREATER! I pray that each and everyone of you can remember that this week! I love you all and keep a joyful heart!
Thanks for popping in,
