Prayer Request

I am asking for your prayers over the next few days. I feel very anxious and kind of down today and I know that this usually last a few days. Also, I have some family things to go to this weekend and I am struggling with how to manage them and still keep the girls on some sort of routine. Might sound silly to you but I really struggle with this. Also, I worry about what other people think of me entirely too much! I have been feeling down lately about some relationships in my life that I feel need a lot of work. And some of them I wonder if anything will ever change or if they are even worth the work. I also get very self conscious and nervous around people, especially in large crowds. As you can see, I just have a heavy spirit right now and I need your prayers for the fog to lift. :o)

Thank you so much and for listening to my ramblings; ya'll are such an encouragement to me! :o)

Love and Prayers,

Julie

* I've been meaning to post on this too, Would ya'll keep Denise in your prayers? Her health is not good and she is a very dear friend to my heart. I hate to know that she is not well. However, her spirit is very strong! She ALWAYS encourages me to be stronger and lean more on HIM. Please keep her health (particularly her heart and eyesight) in your prayers.

Bless your dear, beautiful heart for thinking of me. I appreciate your prayers and friendship more than I can express. Please try to realize how special you are, God loves you so very much. You do not have to fit into any type of mold just to try to please people, just concentrate on God. He loves you just the way you are. All God wants you to be is His lovely daughter Julie. I love you my friend.

I'm praying for you, girl! I think worrying about what others think of us is very common, and it takes courage to admit this...especially us females! =) As far as relationships go, hold onto the ones that are near and dear to your heart, but don't let the tough ones stress you out. Remember God has a plan for everything. Lay this at His feet and trust that everything will work out.

Hugs,
