Ladies! Read allllll the way through for some super-awesome-wonderful details on the #fmfretreat!
But first, it’s time to write. For five minutes only, brave together. Us #FMFParty people. Today’s prompt is: Relief.
In the midst of all the craziness of life, there have to be moments of relief. Time when we can let the stresses fall away and we can immerse ourselves in the sweet truth of God’s love.
Easier said than done, right?
For the past 5 weeks, I’ve been blessed to be part of a Hello Mornings Challenge on the book of Psalms. I’ve been doing Hello Mornings for years now, but this Psalm study? Oh goodness, it’s been the relief I need.
Each morning, minutes past 5am, I crack open my Bible and seek refuge in the psalms. I find relief in the words penned thousands of years ago. I can relax in these declarations of love, power, repentance, renewal, grace…
I find relief in these messages. Whispers of God’s unending love during times when my world is set spinning.
Who knew that an early morning, before-my-eyes-are-truly-open, pre-coffee-buzz Bible study would be so refreshing?
Who knew that I would find relief in a season of crazy.
God does amazing things for His children. Sometimes He moves mountains. Sometimes He pushes the wind and rain away. Sometimes He makes sure the perfect Bible study finds its way to His child in need.
And as I find relief in the Psalms, I can rest assured that God always knows exactly what sort of relief I need.

Also…exciting news! We’ve gotten a sponsor for the #fmfretreat! ViBella Jewelry will be sponsoring part of the retreat, and will be doing a fun presentation/activity. This company is AMAZING!
