~Silver Lining~

Wow! This experience is already blessing me in great ways & we only started last week! Just goes to show that God isn't limited by time.

First, I think that this whole mindset is a really good habit to get into - not
just depending on God when you look at the big picture, but depending on Him in every little moment of every day. It's not easy to get in the habit of depending on Him, but it's happening even w/out me realizing it.

Even on the first day, I noticed a difference! Even just saying our "totally dependent" prayer in the morning is a great way to get started. I noticed that throughout the day I was more relaxed. I didn't worry as much about school, schedule, family, future, life, anything! I had a unique sense of peace. Even with so much going on in life right now, I'm more peaceful and just overall okay w/ the way things are going.

I know that God is going to use this experiment in great ways for all of us! I'm glad that we're in this together and I'm looking forward to hearing how God's working in your lives.

God, thank you for the things that you are already doing! You are a great God! Please continue to help us as we depend on you and thank you for being there every time we call.

It is so encouraging to hear of your great start. The passage at the end is powerful and it really resonates with our daily, normal stuff. Just like Judah, if we rely on Him, He will lead us. Period! No doubting, no questioning. It's no wonder you're feeling His fruit of the Spirit: Peace.
