Lately, I have been so busy with work, school, family, housework, volunteer, homework, and the list goes on…..some days I feel I can’t breathe and I wish there more than 24 hours in a day, after sleep, which isn’t great lately.
I know it’s a season. A season of motherhood. A season of busyness. A season of Growth. My season may not the same as yours but we all go through seasons. The be part is we are not alone.
Truthfully, we all have our seasons and God has filled our plates with what are his plans so we can’t compare or wonder how we can do it better because of others. l will tell your firsthand comparison is not healthy in any way at all. Just let that go as quickly as you can. The only thing we should be comparing ourselves to is Jesus and are we growing more like him every day.
Lately, though my season has been very busy. Although I am trying to be intentional with my children and my husband, I know I am lacking in other areas. And oh how Satan loves to feed on our busyness and I really don’t want any part of that. So tonight I am reminded again with his word that he is my strength.
The Lord quietly speaks to my heart and I have to draw closer to hear him. God sees my anxious heart, he knows my motives. I don’t want to be a pharisee, but in the corners of my heart I can be. He whispers through any spiritual attack that he is changing my heart for the his purpose and his glory.
I am responsible for what I learn through his word. If I don’t walk what I believe than what does my obedience look like to God and to others?
It’s all about heart. Intimacy with the Lord is not dependent on our knowledge but rather our obedience to him. Even in the midst of busyness I should seek him through obedience and my heart will be forever changed.
God, I am broken but you mend all the pieces back together and pour your love into me. You shine through my cracks proclaiming faith, healing, forgiveness, love, mercy, and grace, so that I may walk with you Lord for all my days to come.
