The Sacred Heart promises also make amazing daily affirmations–“He WILL bring peace to my family and comfort me in ALL my afflictions.”
“Jesus meek and humble of heart…make my heart like unto Thine,” begins by pondering the words of our Lord to the Egyptians mentioned in Jeremiah 7, “Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in all the ways I command you, that it may go well with you.”
I spent some time last week working on another module from Simplified Organization.

It’s ok if this season is hard. It’s ok if this season is messy. It’s ok if you feel far from God. Thankfully our faith is not time or washi tape dependent. Thankfully our faith is not feeling based. Thankfully when we glance at God through cranky toddlers, grouchy teens and crusted dishes…He’s still looking at us.
