Maybe there is a lot going on in your life. Maybe there is just something in particular you’ve been struggling with. Maybe you feel like you are struggling with everything. Yes, I’m speaking to myself, as usual.
I found myself having a morning where I was just overwhelmed. Trying to get the kids to get going, working on schoolwork and get out the door for music lessons. Working simultaneously for two different businesses, both on a spur of the moment. My house is a disaster, as usual, and I’m behind on laundry. Again as usual. I’m also working planning a ladies’ retreat for our church and was trying to get some of that together for a meeting this afternoon. All in time to get out the door on time for music lessons. And I let my emotions get the better of me. As I sent the kids in for their music lessons, I may have sat behind in the car for a moment and shed a tear or two. Then I reminded myself:
“You’ve got this. You are a child of God. There’s nothing you can’t do without His help, for His Spirit is within you.”
And I felt better.
Am I still overwhelmed? Yeah. I mean, I’ve got a lot going on.
Should I probably make better use of time management? Most definitely.
Should I cut down on my social media time? Debatable .
The point is, I know that if I trust God to guide my path, He will not only direct my steps, He will guide me in ways that will also provide rest and renewed strength. I just have to be willing to listen to Him and trust that He knows better than I do what I need. I have to live in Him, and let Him dwell in me.
