Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. Here in north central Ohio we have some icing going on out there. Today I’ve been seeking the Lord about the February Scripture Writing Plan. I think He is putting on my heart, “You are enough” as I’ve been dealing with this issue myself.
I’m still laying a little low trying to not overdo it (since my back surgery in December).I’m allowed to lift up to 20 pounds now till April when I hope I’ll not have any more restrictions. That will be good timing so I can be active again in the Spring and Summer and get more done around here.
So…this month the theme is, “You are enough”. It’s a mantra I try to keep in mind for myself. I really am dealing with a lot of feelings of unworthiness currently. Also others finding me less than acceptable.
I have to confess the sin of envy too, I suppose. I see other women who are in Godly relationships (I’m missing my husband who passed three years ago), who are fit and attractive.
I’m knocking on the door of a major age milestone and I’m really not dealing with it well. My autistic son will be 20 in March and that’s always difficult. Being a widow is bad enough, but add the autism mom, and the age milestone and it’s a real recipe for envy and it’s evil cousin named, “I’m not worthy”.
I know in my heart it’s all foolishness and that it’s God’s acceptance I’m really seeking, and I do, but I let the worries of what others think of me beat me up. But I am actively battling it, and I thought I would share the scripture passages I’ve been reading as comfort for the February scripture writing plan.
February is the month of love, right? I really am trying to seek just God’s love and approval. It’s a hard day for those of us who are widows, isn’t it ladies? And you widowers as well, of course.
So… I thought this was the perfect month to allow God’s Word to minister to us to comfort us and warm our hearts as He tells us how much He loves us and values us. I may do a “ponderings of my predicaments” post about that. I posted a vent on Facebook that was pretty long and I’ve gotten a lot of really sweet feedback.
I’m so thankful that so many of you are enjoying and spiritually benefiting from these monthly scripture writing plans! I love putting them together for you knowing that you find them useful and uplifting! Use these passages to write out the scriptures and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing –>
I usually print these out on 28 pound white paper (or 32 pound paper is even better) and just stick them right into my planner or journal. The heavier the paper, the less chance it will tear out of your binder or planner by accident and helps resist bleeding or ghosting from your pens or markers. It helps the page turn easier too. If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paper. I use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type. Going through a lot of ink printing out planner stickers? Do like I did and enlist in the HP Instant Ink program! I’ve saved so much money on ink since I did a year and a half ago. They have different plans, but the one I’m in (the most pages) is that I can print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $9.99 per month. You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things. Click on the image here to check it out! –>
