There's been quite a lot on my heart latley. Worry has started creeping back into my life with winter coming my husband won't be able to do yard work for my family any more and that extra money was a blessing that kept us above water. But God knows how He will provide so it's not for me to worry about.
Memories of the past keep flooding my heart making me sad and angry again. Every time I let go they come back in waves. But God is bigger and I'm thankful for my past, He's using it for HIS good and it's not mine to worry about so I continue to let go and keep praying.
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with this mothering task ahead of me, I'm just a girl. How can I possibly be a mother and a wife trying with all my strength to pull my family into God's will for us on my own? I'm tired, tired of the struggle. I'm reminded right now again though to let go and let God handle it. It's not my job to pull our family to Him, it's His to bring us to Him. It's impossible to do what He wants in MY own strength. I don't have control of this, He does and it's not mine to worry about.
So in all my worry and sense of being overwhelmed I feel like I should remember my blessings. I'm too blessed to be stressed.
Today I'm thankful for
1) Snuggle time with my daughter
2) Butterfly kisses with my son
7) Having my husband home and actually hanging out with us for a whole 24 hours.
9) Being able to cry out to God and His answer before I even realize it
I think being thankful, and realizing my blessings keeps me grounded. Counting our blessings lets us see that God is truly in control and He really does see us.
What are you thankful for today?
