Something I Needed to Hear

Nothing is a coincidence right? Everything happens for a reason. I honestly, truly believe that. 

To begin this, I've been going through a rough time recently. I've been dealing with a lot of stress and consequently A LOT of anxiety and panic attacks and sadness. Lately, I've felt bad more often than I've felt good. For me that's rare, because at the end of the day I always find a way to cheer myself up. But lately I've been going to bed sad and waking up sad. 

I've spoken with my mom about it a lot. I've complained to my best friends about it a lot. And I've lost it in front of my boyfriend a lot. I've talked about it all and thought about it all hoping that one day I would wake up ok again, but so far it's been to no prevail. 

I woke up sad and sick this morning. I went to work and though I need to be productive today, so I'm going to sit for 5 minutes on Pinterest to get some inspiration and motivation to get me through the day. I go to the quotes page as you do when you need encouragement, and the very very first pin to pop up was a Bible verse. It said:

"Have you prayed about it as much as you've talked about it?" 

I can honestly say the answer is no. And I can honestly say I needed to read that. 

The coinciding Bible verse that goes along with that quote is Matthew 21:22 and it reads "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." 

It may sound silly for me to say, but I think that pin was put first there for a reason. I needed to be reminded to pray about my struggles and hardships and ask for healing. At the end of the day, if and when people let me down, I know that prayer won't.
