- I have gone from working a 25 to 30 hour work week to a 40 hour work week.
- The girl is now on the track team at school, which involves at least 4 afternoons of practice a week with me picking her up at 5:15.
- The boys are joining the Noize at church, and that means Saturday and Sunday trips into Houston.
- I still desire to keep up on the houseblessings and have done a pretty good job ~ though it's not daily deep cleaning, we are not living in chaos.
As busy as my life gets, there is one thing that never ceases to fail. When it gets busy, I want to run! No, no, no... not the kind of running that is good for the physical heart,but instead the kind that is good for the soul.I find myself lately being overwhelmed and I realize it is because there isn't a few moments of silence to hear the gentle whisper of God. Instead, NOW I desire to seek HIM! Yesterday after a very few strange events that broke me down, I cried out "I CAN'T DO THIS ON MY OWN!". I have been trying to though.How easy is it to say "God I need you, but right now I think I can do this alone.". UGH! What a prideful attitude!
I get so busy that the only thing I can do is crumble and realize that nothing matters to me if it isn't in the hands of God. I can't "keep" my marriage together without it resting in the hands of God. I can't raise my children without them resting in the hands of God. Heck, I can't make it out the door without the direction of God. Can you? Should you?
Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15:4
I want to bear fruit! I can't do it alone.
I also wanted to announce the winner of the book giveaway that is in my last post! Mindy, this book will be at your door before the weekend! :)
