In my conversation with Chris, I was telling him that I'm just tired and I feel like I'm at my breaking point. I don't feel like I can handle much more. Not only that, the things that I am trying to do - pay off debt, pass the CPA exam, lose weight, make memories that my kids will remember forever - seems like those never happen either. I feel like I try to do so much that nothing gets done.
- Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails - Proverbs 19:21
- Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed - Proverbs 16:3
Lysa states, "Remember that everything that happens to you is first filtered through God's hand. What you might see as distractions, God might see as divine appointments." Whew! That puts things into perspective. That will make you take a step back and realize, maybe I'm not by myself at all. I don't need to shoulder the burden alone. So, this week, I'm going to try to take a step back and enjoy the here and now. I don't need to compare my life to those around me. God has created me to be the moma to my four wonderful babies. I'm the Mom that He had planned for them and that's good enough for me!
