With spring we think about cleaning, new birth, renewal
and the Resurrection of Jesus!
Spring is the perfect time to change your batteries in your smoke detectors as you set your clocks forward, deep clean the house, weed the garden and perhaps clean out your closets. BUT what about your mind, body and spirit?
When was the last time you paused and took a look at your life and the busyness around you?
I hear so many women talk about how they are struggling with their life.
Some are struggling with stress, fatigue, illness while others struggle more on the spiritual levels.
God designed us to Thrive girls not just survive!
“I made you to thrive like the plants in the field, and you grew, matured and became very beautiful.”
Why do we struggle?
Sometimes our circumstances can derail us from thriving if we are not careful. You see our tendency when a trial or challenge comes our way is to shut down. What God really wants us to do is run to Him with our arms stretched out and allow God to carry us through the circumstances/trials. We just have to stop and remember God has us covered!
One of the easiest ways we can thrive is by spending more time with the Lord.
Ask yourself today, “am I spending time with God each day?”
If we do not have more of God in our life, we cannot thrive!
What do you need to change today so you can thrive as a woman of God?
Did you know laughter can actually heal your body, spirit and mind?
Laughter is powerful as it releases stress and fatigue in your body. Some have found that laughter can even relieve a headache, tummy ache and mild depression.
When was the last time you laughed…I mean a good belly laugh?
The Bible tells us:
“A merry heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.”
Sometimes a good laugh can be had just watching a short video on social media or reading a funny quote. Here are some places/ways you can have a good laugh:
- A funny movie
- Lunch or coffee with girlfriends
- A funny book
- Watching your dogs or cats
- Watching young children
- Burning dinner (yes, I laugh when it happens so I don’t cry)
What are your favorite things that make you laugh?
Sometimes life is so consuming and stressful we truly need that comedy break even for a brief moment. Next time you are stressed out find something to laugh about and see how different you feel.
“A woman who laughs does not have gray hair…
OR she just colors it regularly!”
Share below what makes you laugh, I want to know so I can laugh with you!
Are you ready to wrap your arms around summer time and refresh your body, mind and spirit? Summer is a great time to spend reflecting and refreshing yourself before the holiday’s come rushing at us.
As women we are often out of balance because we are always busy taking care of everyone else and everything else, we forget to maintain our balance. When we are out of balance we find ourselves getting sick, irritated, frustrated and in some cases even depressed.
