This past week I received a Facebook message which asked me what I pray…really. It was an interesting question. Have to admit being a bit taken aback because I tend to write a lot about what I’m praying. But maybe the question needs some further thought. What do I really pray about? I remember in… Continue reading What do I pray…really?
I’ve become a hermit. Hermit\ adj., living in the desert. 1 a: one that retires from society and lives in solitude esp. for religious reasons: RECLUSE 2 : a spiced molasses cookie When I started this blog I was meaning more the recluse definition but I think I’m going to go with “a spiced molasses… Continue reading Me, The Hermit, and a Molasses Cookie
Sanity in the Storm
Why is it that I’m most productive, energetic, and awake after eleven pm? Seriously. Why can’t I be a morning person? Actually I think I would be if I would just GO TO SLEEP ALREADY! I know if I put my head on my pillow I’d be sound asleep in seconds and yet I’m sitting here typing…goofball.
I’ve just gotta get on a better schedule…it’s probably going to mean that I don’t get much done for at least a day…or a night. But golly it would be a good thing to do!
I’m highly motivated to get things done. I’ve started writing down a lot of to-do lists and I’m thoroughly enjoying checking things off. I feel much better about things…although there are definitely days when I don’t have the pleasure of checking off many things on my list. Days when things just don’t go as planned and everything goes wonky on me.
I’m finding that much of my success depends on my attitude. A positive attitude seems to enable me to accomplish more. I think it’s because I’m not allowing myself to feel or be defeated by the day.
I trust God even when things go kablooey. I know that God will use even the craziest of days to help me be the woman He designed me to be.
The blog I’m sharing from MomLifeToday.com, Sanity in the Storm, is one a wrote about a totally different kind of list…my list of things that overwhelm. Unfortunately I seem to be able to check everything on that list almost daily. I do definitely struggle with the whole overwhelmed thing…entirely too much if you ask me. Especially considering I KNOW that God loves me and will not give me more than I can handle with Him.
The problem is that I keep trying to handle everything without Him. Again…goofball.
I do know without a doubt that God did not make me to be overwhelmed nor did He make me to do my life without Him. I’m made for so much more…I’m made for love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control…all those fruit of the Spirit…and I’m made for relationship with my Lord and Savior! I’m made to do this life with Him.
And I’m so thankful because I can’t imagine any other way to do it!
I wrote this blog last week and hadn’t posted it yet because I can’t seem to catch up with school, work, and house…well pretty much anything. I was sharing with a friend some of things that I’ve been thinking about and writing about lately. This dear friend challenged me to share a happy post I’d… Continue reading Grief Upon Grief Upon Grace Upon Grace
