Walking and running in nature is one of my favourite downtimes.
I was blessed this morning by a friend who offered me to walk in their estate and shower at their place. Wow, what a spectacular place to be in. I was not aware that there was a game reserve in the estate and was so pleasantly surprised when I saw this friendly deer there to meet me.
I decided this is one of my favourite places to be, I will do something I’ve never done before. I took a selfie… yes I have taken them with my hubby or kids but we have to have a very good reason or we don’t just get snapping. But here it is. I decided to post it here. Why? I realised when I looked at the picture that I look very scared, anxious and not relaxed. I was so alarmed as I thought I was relaxing and having a great time in the outdoors.
I asked the Lord to show me what was really bothering me and He showed me that all the tension and social anxiety my kids are having is affecting me. I was then free to pray about these and felt very relieved to be able to and grateful the Lord showed me what was bothering me.
