oh, no...it's what time?!
End of the day, get to Zumba, eat some dinner with the fam, then off to Rylee's softball game. It was almost 9:30 by the time we got home, and everyone needed a bath plus Rylee needed her PE uniform washed---oh my word, I need two more hours in my day to get it all done before I crash and sleep! How do I do it? I often wonder, but then I quickly go, "Hmmm, yeah, okay--that's you God!" I love my life, I love my family and I love everything we are doing so it is moments like this that I can take a breath and go, "Aha, yeah, it is okay, God's doing His thing so I can keep moving!" Faith sustains us, His peace and strength encourage us to put one foot in front of the other. I know that if I wasn't talking to Him, digging in the Word everyday and never letting go of that feeling of thanksgiving in my heart then I would crash and burn a whole lot more. I know I am in trouble if in a moment of struggle, I head south for desperate measures...woh! God has not moved, He does not change so despite my circumstances, He is the same. What a relief. I know, no matter how wigged out I get that I can find Him there, beside me, guiding me, and at times carrying me when I finally realize I cannot do any of this on my own. I am getting this much better than I did ten years ago, so perhaps with age and experience I have relaxed a little more. Life will go on, and so I will continue to go to the Father for some time in His presence, at His feet to be humbled, strengthened, comforted.
