Seeking God’s Help

Scriptures to comfort you and remind you of God’s love and grace in your life. Meditate on them, carry them in your hearts. remember them and reflect when your afraid, or feeling uncertain, heartbroken, confused, or in need of direction.

 

Exodus 14:13-14 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”


“He found him in a desert land

And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness;
He encircled him, He instructed him,
He kept him as the apple of His eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up its nest,
Hovers over its young,
Spreading out its wings, taking them up,
Carrying them on its wings,
12 So the Lord alone led him,
And there was no foreign god with him

Psalm 18:16-19

16He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. 17He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. 18They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. 19He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

Isaiah 41:10 New International Version (NIV)

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

“May God Almighty bless you,
And make you fruitful and multiply you,
That you may be an assembly of peoples;
And give you the blessing of Abraham,
To you and your descendants with you,
That you may inherit the land
In which you are a stranger,
Which God gave to Abraham.”

To My Blessed followers and readers:

Winter Date Night & Valentines’s Day Ideas 2018

When budgeting for the essentials, it can be a challenge to try to add some fun and recreation into the mix.  Luckily date nights don’t have to be super expensive to be fun.  The bigger picture is you have someone to share life with and that’s pretty awesome!  You can go to the most expensive restaurant in town with a complete jerk!  That’s no fun.  The fun is in finding some special to spend time with, though hard as it may be a times.  However keep a positive an optimistic heart and you’ll attract the same!  Browse SCW’s list of free and frugal dates and perhaps it will inspire some ideas of your own!

Love is in the Air!  Time to celebrate the gift of love.  For me it’s not about gifts or doing some big exciting thing although that’s great too.  The luxury of having someone in your life is the real gift.  Having your spouse focus their undivided attention on you is sexy and romantic!

Valentines  Day Gift Baskets are a great gift idea for him or her.  Buying one as is fine.  Or you can be creative and put whatever you want in it to tailor it for a male or female.  Michael’s craft store has everything you need to DIY.  They have a variety of baskets to choose from, ribbons, fillers, it’s a fun little project.

Make reservations for a romantic night away from home.  Changing your environment and breaking routine from time to time can really spice things up.

Couples Massage. There’s something to be said for slowing down and being in the moment.

Commemorative Pillow Keepsake. Simply find a store that does engraving and show your valentine how thoughtful you are.

Not just a restaurant, but a Romantic restaurant , that’s dimly lit and sets the tone.

A private dining room.  Funny story, My husband and I were having dinner at a very elegant restaurant.  There were a trio of women near our table and they had been drinking a lot and were kinda loud.  He wasn’t going to stand for that, he got us a private dining room, very romantic.  I’m sure those rooms book up fast on holidays so book it now!

Turn your bedroom into cupid’s love nest. Your valentine will feel special that you took the time to do this, it shows your thoughtfulness.

Make a romantic dinner and have a quiet evening at home.

Flowers and Candy from a loving spouse still works!

After a romantic dinner warm up by the fire and have an intimate relaxing moment with desert.

Decadent desert.  It’s okay it’s Valentine’s Day.

No date tonight?  No worries, better to have no date then the wrong date.  Besides when the right one comes along it will be totally worth the wait.  Your Father in Heaven Loves you!  And unlike people, He loves you when you’re up and when your down.  He’s the one that can fix the broken places, heal your heart, and bring you the soul mate that you desire.  Psalms 37:4 “God will give you the desires of your heart!”

Verse of the day:

We love our readers and followers, Happy Valentines day to you all from SCW

Those of you with toddlers and newborns, I understand it may be harder for you to get out and go to the gym.  No worries!  You can tone at home!  We feel better when we feel like we’re doing something to improve ourselves, or simply doing something for ourselves.  Especially women because we are caregivers for the whole family.  For me exercising is my “me time” I prefer to do it alone, it’s what works for me.  What are you doing to care for yourself?  Get started today!

If you do have the time I strongly encourage joining the gym or an exercise class and getting out amongst other like minded people.  It will help you to feel like you’re not alone.  It might produce a healthy dose of competition.  If you see someone whom you admire, it may push you to work harder. However go at your own pace, consistency is the key!
