Comfort for your soul

Where do you find comfort for your soul?  What scripture verse do you meditate on when you are at unrest in your soul?  Yesterday was just one of those was hard and I was so unsettled.
So thankful that I do not have to go on my feelings, but I can rest in the truth of God's Word.
Here is my favorite scripture verse for those times.

Ps. 62:5-8
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope if from Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.

I find such comfort in knowing that God is a refuge, that I can trust Him at all times and I can pour out my heart to Him!

A Working Mom

I am not used to working a full day,  outside of the home.  Since April I have been working outside of our home for our business.   We have been short of employees so I fill in the gap.  I work long hard days.  I have learned alot during this time.  We are in the delivery business and I can't find my way out of a paper bag.  LOL!  I have learned to read a map...gps does not work very well in the country.
.  I come home very tired and most nights do not even eat dinner.  I have had to make meals in advance and try to keep up on the laundry.  It has given me an appreciation for working moms.  (esp. ones with small children)  My children are grown and out of the home with the exception of one.
I have to be honest and say that I am glad that I do not have to work outside of the home very often.
I have had to rely on the Lord to get me through most days,  it never ceases to amaze me how He leads me, strenghtens me and blesses me throughout my day!
Anyone want to share how you handle being a working mom?

To combat discouragement

Do you sometimes get discouraged with life and how things are going or not going?  Well, I do and I have to remember who I am.  Here is a prayer to help with that.

I am strong and God's Word is always abiding in me, in my heart and I am victorious over the wicked one.  Jesus, You were made visible so that You undid  and destroyed, loosened and dissolved the works of what the devil has done.  God, thank You for sending Your only begotten Son into the world that I might live through Him.  My faith in You, Jesus the Son of God is what gives me victory over the evil one and this world.  I have the confidence, assurance, the privilege of boldness in You, that if I ask anything, make any request according to Your will, in agreement with Your own plan, You listen to me and hear me.  I positively know that You listen to me in whatever I ask. I also know with settled and absolute knowledge and boldness that I have the petitions I have asked of You.  Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.

I John: 1-5
