Song of the Week
When my hopes fade
And my dreams die.
And I find no answer
I just keep on trusting
And hang on to my faith.
Because God is just
He never makes mistakes.
Should the storms come
And trials I must face.
When I find no solution
I rest in God's grace.
When life seems unfair
And more than I can take.
I look up to the Father
He never makes mistakes.
God sees our struggles
And every bend in the road.
But no mistake is ever made
Cause He weighs every load.
- Lenora McWhorter
Are you running out of ideas of what to do with your time? Being outdoors is a great way to change the scenery of your day and will also help you feel healthier and happier. Here are some outdoor ideas that will hopefully inspire you at this time:
If you have a garden, you could order some seeds online and plant some flowers and do some de-weeding!
If you have children at home you can create a scavenger hunt with clues in your garden for them with a chocolate egg as a prize at the end.
You can go on a walk or run and listen to some great music to lift your spirits.
Again if you have a garden you can sit outside when the sun is shining and enjoy a morning coffee, tea or breakfast.
You could read a book outside or listen to an audio book while you do some walking/running.

Sit comfortably and focus on the words on the bible verse, putting all distractions aside.
Read through the verse a few times and let the words help you to focus on the hope you can have in God.
Pray to God for peace in the hardships that you are currently facing.
How to Pray
Pray this prayer if you are feeling hopeless:
