Food for the Soul ~ I Peter 5:7

Hi friends. Well, another weekend has come and gone. I've been a bit MIA from Posed Perfection lately. My parents came into town for a visit, so that kept me a bit shopping trips to Pottery Barn and Dillard's, family time celebrating my hubby's and my brother's birthdays, and more than a few rounds of Uno. We bought a "new to us" washer and dryer set off of Craigslist this week and now I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse(shhhh...don't tell hubby). We just set them up last evening and ran our first load. The washer was really loud and the dryer (which was my main reason for buying appliances) was also making a bunch of racket. I took the load out and will have hubby check things out to see why it's making so much noise. Hopefully, it's an easy fix. On a sad note, my sweet Oliver is under the weather and that makes this mama more than a little anxious. I've tried everything I can think of, but I will most likely be taking him to the vet today or tomorrow to get checked out. {If you think about it and are so inclined, please say a little prayer for him. Thanks} That's just a sampling of the things occupying my thoughts. Back to school time is drawing near too and already I am feeling pressure from all directions. I need this Food for the Soul more than anything today.

Right before this verse in the Bible, the author~ Peter, implored his readers to "humble themselves, therefore, under God's almighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time." Before we cast our cares on Him, we need to realize that we can't handle everything alone and were never meant to. We need to approach the Almighty humbly, seeking His guidance and grace.

I tend to take on more and more, eventually bending under the weight of "what ifs" and other things I have no control over. Most days, I'm ashamed to say, it doesn't even occur to me to go to Him with the things I deem too tedious for His attention, yet occupy my every thought. How prideful is that? He made me and knows my innermost thoughts. Nothing is hidden from Him, yet He desires for us to come to the end of ourselves and realize our utter dependence on Him. Today, I choose to come before His throne with humility seeking His favor, His guidance, His healing touch. As we've seen time and again, He longs to satisfy our needs. Why not humble ourselves to truly seek Him?

Have a blessed week, sweet friends. Is there anyway I can pray for you this week?
