Life Update + Your Favorite Inspirational Verses / Quotes?

Hi guys, I hope that you’re all having a beautiful evening (: ❤

My family and I just left from visiting my mom at the hospital a short while ago. We really enjoyed getting to see her, and I’m happy to say that she’s feeling well. She’s definitely not going into labor (woohoo!), but she’ll be staying there tomorrow as well so the doctors can keep an eye on her. If all goes well, which it certainly looks like it will, she’ll get to come home on Sunday. ❤

The rest of my family are doing well, too. I’m actually not feeling too great, as this has been a big stress on me emotionally, and I’ve also been “playing mommy” (as my parents put it, haha) for Samuel and Elizabeth these last few days. Taking care of them, cleaning up around the house, and worrying about how my mom’s doing has definitely been tough on me.

I know that the Lord has been with us through it all, and that He will continue to be. Although, I think it’s crazy how hard it is to understand what it’s like to trust in the Lord when life is stressful when compared to when life is going well. I continue to pray and trust in Him, but boy, it is WAY different than when life’s easy! This is where faith grows, guys ❤ You really don’t know what faith is until all you can do is trust in Him. When everything in your life depends on His will … it’s crazy watching yourself begin to trust in Him more and more. Amidst the chaos, it is an absolutely beautiful thing. ❤

Now, I’d like to ask all of you guys to comment something for me! As the title of this post suggests …

I would love for you to comment Bible verses and inspirational quotes that mean a lot to you.

I’d appreciate reading those; I need all the inspiration I can get. 🙂 Feel free to comment as many as you’d like.

I hope that you all have a beautiful night! God bless you!

  1. I am SOO glad your mom is doing better! Y’all have been in my prayers!! I am sorry you aren’t doing too good. I am here for you! ❤ "Playing Mommy" can be hard, especially if the reason you're doing it is because your Mommy is in the hospital. Yes. Our faith grows when we are having to trust in Christ more. During, it is really hard, But you will look back on this time and thank God for it ❤

  6. Praying for your mom and for you, sweet girl. As the oldest of 6 I did a ton of babysitting so I can relate to the stress you’re feeling and I’m sending you all the strength! As for my favorite inspirational quote for you: It’s this: “You really don’t know what faith is until all you can do is trust in Him.” My devotion this morning was Faith. And YOU described it best. He’s with you. ❤️

  7. I’m glad your mother is doing better💟 when I’m afraid I read Esther (not any particular verse, just the whole book) and i listen to the hymn “come thou fount.” I’ll be continuing to pray for your family.

    Some of my favorite quotes are:

    Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing – Denis Waitley

    Courage is the resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not the absence of fear – Mark Twain

    God bless you and your family and keep you safe from harm!

  10. I’m glad to learn that your mom is doing better. May God continue to cover her and watch over her. One of my favourites to red is Psalms 31, ” In thee, Oh Lord do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed. Deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me, deliver me speedily; be thou my strong rock; for a house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake, lead me and guide me.”

  11. One of my favorite verses that gives me strength is Hebrews 12:1-2 ‘Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us ly aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
    I am so very glad to hear that your mom is doing better. I am praying for you. ❤
