An Inspired Young Woman's Daybook #6

Well, I've been lax in my daybook for a couple of weeks, so I thought I would get back into the habit. So here is my Inspired Young Woman's Daybook.

Today I am kind of overwhelmed.
I'm feeling tired from the English country dancing "ball" we went to last night (though it was lovely!)
My outfit is jeans and a gray sweatshirt that says "Lovin' Life"
Outside my window it is a gray and weary day. Everything seems bogged down by the heavy clouds.
A song that's stuck in my head is the National Treasure theme... my brothers and I are using it for a movie we're making.
Something (a book, song, movie, person...) that's inspired me recently: the song, "Oh Lord, You're Beautiful", by Keith Green. I sing it often, and it helps me to re-focus my thoughts on God instead of on my worries or on a catchy song with not-so-good lyrics.
A prayer of my heart this week is to be able to trust God in all areas of my life - and especially about my future.
I am creating a ton of things... I seem to love multitasking at the moment.
I am reading Do Hard Things by the Harris twins, and Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot (with my mom).
I am thinking about how nice it was to have a heart-to-heart talk with my mom this morning. :)
A scripture verse or passage that's stuck out to me this week: Psalm 90:14 "Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days."
A spiritual lesson I'm learning is to be willing to let God use me no matter the consequences.
An attribute of God I've seen this week is His omnipotence - He has everything under control even if I don't!
A picture I’d like to share:


The sunrise was beautiful yesterday!

A creative goal for next week is to finish a short story I'm working on which is an allegory of Christ's redeeming work for us. And also continue in re-writing "Rescue My Heart"!
Did I complete my goal from last week... well, I rewrote up to chapter 11, but not all of Anna's part. So - I guess I did most of it. ;)

praise God He is sovereign and GOOD! i'm praying you would hold onto jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." He has your entire life planned out for good 'cause of Christ and the cross :)

Amber: Yes, isn't the music awesome? It fits with the movie so well.

Helen: Thank you for the encouragement! It is good to remember that God has plans for my life.

Frailyn: No problem! I'm glad you're holding on to this truth - I know it can be so hard sometimes when it's difficult to see at all.

Blessings to all of you!
