You get up out of bed, head straight to the coffee pot, then stand for way too long under the hot water in the shower. Then it’s getting ready, getting the baby ready, taking care of the dog, and trying not to leave the house like it’s been ransacked by vengeful robbers.
Dropping off at daycare, running late to work. Tackling that TDL while trying to remember all you have to do at home after work. Quick lunch in the break room. More coffee.
Pick up the baby, run the errands, figure out dinner (pleeeease start planning your meals ahead of time. I’ll show you how), quick trip to the grocery store during cooking dinner because you’re out of that one ingredient.
Finally sit down with your man for dinner. Awwww, fifteen minutes of relaxation.
Ok, clean up after dinner. Laundry, baby’s bath time, quick work out in the square foot of space in your bedroom, and it’s time to call it a night.
Hey, it’s every day life! Sometimes it can get a bit stressful, a bit overwhelming. And as Christians we know that growing in the word of God (the closest thing to a manual for life) is what’s going to help us make it day to day through life in this broken world. So today I’m going to share the Bible verses that come up through my day to day
exhaustions adventures 😉
Note that a lot of these verses are paraphrased as I mentally recall them not word for word from a particular bible translation but from the impression they’ve made on my heart and my not so perfect memory.
When up in the morning showering (the only quiet time we get, am I right?) and saying good morning to the One who created me and gives me daily breath. Marvel at who your Father is and invite Him into your day.

When driving to work and I’m late or the kids are fighting or I catch every.single.red.light. When cut off in traffic or passed by someone going waaaay too fast. Know that their actions are not personal towards you. Deep breathes…

And let us consider how to stir others up toward love and good worksHebrews 10:24
Walk in loveEphesians 5:2
When I’m exhausted and absolutely have to have that mid-afternoon caffeine kick. When I’m stressed out and frustrated and ready to call it quits on whatever it is.
Be anxious in nothing, but in everything with prayer and thanksgiving present your requests to the Lord. And the peace that passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind.Philippians 4:6&7
He alone is my rock and salvation and I will not be shakenPsalm 62:2

Life is busy! And I know you’re hectic most of the time. That’s why knowing and living your Bible can make a huge difference in your life and the lives around you. You don’t have to be a pastor’s wife or full time missionary! 😉
Pick a couple of these to write in your own words and consequently on your heart. Or look them up in your ESV or NLT, highlight, and memorize them verbatim if that’s more you. I’ve also made some printable pages for you to print out and use! Everything’s better when it’s pretty, right?!
Whichever resonates more with you, I truly hope you’ll use these Bible verses to help you get through whatever the day may bring!
