Needing encouragement

Hi everyone,
This week is NOT treating me well and I am already overwhelmed. Could ya send me a little love and encouragement please? It would just make my day/week. This and next week are looking cruddy so I am just in need of a little support and encouragement.
Following HIM (~Elyse~)

Hang in there, girl. Spring Break is just around the corner! I have confidence that you will get through this week and next. :o)

You are one of the most determined young women I know! I have no doubt that you will accomplish everything you set your mind to.

God has big plans for you. I know you seek His face and want to live your life according to His will for you. Well, guess what? He sees your hunger for Him...your obedience to Him...your love for Him. I know He loves you so much. Rest in Him.

Just take one day at a time. Of course (picture my "mom look" on my face), you need to get plenty of sleep, eat well-balanced meals, and take a few minutes each day for yourself...just to relax a little. It may only be 15 minutes, but it's important to take that breather. Now, repeat after me...
"I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength." Say it again..."I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength."
Amen??? AMEN!!!

Love you, Elyse...

Hang in there, dear Elyse!!!

Things may seem rough now, but they won't last forever. When things get especially hard for me and I find myself dreading getting out of bed in the morning, I simply tell myself, "This is the day that the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!" Even if I don't necessarily believe it, I still say it and it seems to make me feel better.

You are a sweet person who has brought so much love and joy into the lives of others. Any child would be extremely blessed to have you as their teacher. :)

Elyse... can't tell you how much your comments encourage me and I'm glad you find time to leave them... and I hope that you are able to be encouraged by the messages from your friends and the fact that they are LIFTING YOU IN PRAYER.

God knows the million little details of your life. Every little piece of your schedule and every big and little thing that needs to get done. Which also includes eating, sleeping, and taking care of yourself.

Take a deep breath whenever it starts to feel overwhelming and remind yourself that you are created with a purpose. And anything worth achieving is gonna be hard. You're doing it girl! :)

Julie said...

Hang in there! The weekend is almost here. I'll be praying for you!

“How you think about a problem is more important than the problem itself. So always think positively.”

Keep up the good fight! The weekend is on it's way shortly. I know you can do it!

Hollie said...

Emily said...

Tim said...

Elyse, Keep your head up. Things will get better. I know this because someone as sweet and caring as you are will always be blessed by God especially when things seem dire. I am always praying for you my dear friend but especially now.

Go to my blog and check out Hollie's work. You were right she is AMAZING!! Register for my giveaways, who knows you might just win one.

Love and Prayers,
