Trust God. That's what everyone tells you. He's got everything under control. But sometimes our life seems so out of control, how could anyone have it under control? That is the point when you have to decide to not try to be in control. Just be you and God will take care of the rest. Someone posted on Facebook, "You can't please everybody. You're not a pizza." It's so true. We also have to accept that we won't always be able to please ourselves. The best we can do is the best we can do. But beating ourselves up over unaccomplished tasks won't get them done. "Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it." (L.M. Montgomery) So take another step tomorrow. You can't fully know how the decisions you make today will shape your tomorrow. You can make decisions with wisdom, but even then you won't be able to please everyone. Even God doesn't please everyone. So stop trying to be perfect. You are never going to be. Breathe. Do something that you enjoy, just because you want to do it. Relax.
Remember what Mary Poppins says,
" In every chore that must be done, there is an element of fun. Find the fun, and SNAP!!! The job's a game! And every task you undertake becomes a piece of cake, a lark, a spree, it's very clear to see...
that a spoon full of sugar...."
Okay, you can finish the song yourself.

  1. Hello dear Emily,
    I can't tell you how pleased I am to have discovered your lovely blog today! You see, I too am a young lady striving to live for the Lord and I love dressing femininely and modestly... Meeting sisters in Christ who have similar beliefs brings me great joy!
    But let me introduce myself first...I am Kelly-Anne and I am eighteen years old... I blog at Beautiful Girlhood and it is my desire to encourage and inspire other young girls to follow their Saviour throughout their girlhood years... Following God is so richly rewarding!
    But now I am off to browse around your blog a bit and get to know you a bit more!
    Blessings to you and much love as well!
    In Christ,

    It's always a joy to have you at Roses of Inspiration. Enjoy the remainder of your week! Hugs!

  4. Such wise words from a young woman! As you grow older you'll realize that as long as you please God and yourself you'll be doing great! Your thrifty outfit is just darling! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
