I don’t think any of us could really be prepared for everything that’s going on in the world right now. It’s scary, and overwhelming, and honestly I don’t feel like I have any more answers than anyone else. I’m just trying to trust God and keep moving forward. As y’all know, I like to try to bring the fun, especially when things are hard. Even in the middle of corona, wildfires, and lots of other scary things, I want to remind myself to breathe, do a dance, and wash my hands hehe. So I wanted to make y’all some cute free phone backgrounds to remind YOU of some truths. Even in scary times, there is peace available to us, and even when things are hard, we can do a dance. Here they are!
1. The Social-Distancing To-Do List
These days can feel overwhelming, but they don’t have to. Remember to keep doing the little things and keeping in routine as much as you can. Make your bed, go for a walk, take a dance break!
2. Keep the Love Flowin’
When anxiety tries to take over, try to go serve and love someone else! It’ll get you out of your own head and give you a clearer perspective. Sometimes it’s something as simple as making Jordan breakfast (aka grabbing something to go from one of our local Dallas restaurants!) or calling up a girlfriend who’s been struggling.
3. Stop the Worry Train in It’s Tracks
Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Ain’t that the TRUTH ladies?! Let’s stop wasting our energy worrying (easier said than done, I know!!).
4. Hold on to That Inner Peace
This quote really stuck out to me because most quotes about peace are so, well, peaceful! But this one is like “HEY! PEACE MATTERS! YOU HAVE TO FIGHT TO KEEP IT!” And it’s so true! Fight to keep your inner peace – I love to pray while I’m on my runs and that usually helps me to calm down and breathe again.
5. He’s Got This
It’s so simple, but so true – God’s got this! This wasn’t a surprise to Him and we can trust that somehow, He’s going to use it for His good, even though it may not look like it right now.
What is helping you stay calm during the chaos?? I loved getting these free phone backgrounds together for you guys!! If you use a background, tag me so I can see which one you picked! I love you sassy mamas so much! Stay safe and remember to breathe 💛
