after Christmas Blues

Why do we have these moments of awe man Christmas is over...? I dont know about you but it happens every year to me. I wanted this year to be different. I wanted to start off this year by having the attitude of Christ. I am not promised tomorrow right? So how can I be bummed about a season ending? A brand new one is beginning and I want to be an open book. I am due February 25th with a little baby boy Nolan Isaiah. If that's not a new season I'm not sure what is. I am having times of being tempted to be anxious about 3 kids but God is slowly calming my own apprehensions with his promises.
"No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, an he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." 1 Corinthians 10:13

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 Resist him,firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. 10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace,who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 11 To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-10

So I wanted to write today and look back on this time and see how God used it to chip away at my own selfishness and replaced it with his strength and endurance.

Dear God,
 THANK YOU for life. Thank you for taking this shell of me and filling it up with truth and with grace. Thank you that I dont have to rely on myself. That you are always in control of my life. That you have breathed into me promises of love and eternal life. Thank you for your many blessings I dont deserve. For great family and friends and an amazing husband that loves you more than he loves me.

I love you.

-Ashley
