There are several times when I have felt like I just couldn’t win no matter what I did. Running late in the morning, off to a bad start, yelling at the kids, wishing that I could be that sweet voiced mother even though I wanted to scream. But, what I have learned is that I can.
Hey, I took a few weeks of and it felt so good. If you follow me on social media you can see what I’ve been up to this summer such as summer vacation and my business, but other than that, God is good.
So, I titled this blog, You gotta get up, because I have to be honest. Sometimes I need to be my own cheerleader and this is exactly what I tell myself. Ladies, have you ever felt like everything in life is just weighing on you and if the wind blows just right, it could blow you over. Lets talk…
I’m sure you have heard this before, I had but up until a few years ago I didn’t really know what this meant. What kind of strength? So, I was this saying that I wasn’t able to have enough strength on my own? It really took a few desperate situations for me to begin to fully become aware the meaning.
Has there ever been a season in your life that you wondered why you’re here? What is it exactly that God would have you do with your life? Each day brings a new challenge filled with frustration and you just can’t catch a break? I’m raising both hands here.
As we close out 2016, there is one thing that I would like you to know…
I can remember about 5 years ago, I stopped at a store to shop and had my three children with me. At the time, they were ages 13 and my twins were 7. I was supposed to run into the store rather quickly, grab what I needed, and run back out. But, if you are a parent I’m sure you can relate when I say things don’t always go as planned.
There are many things in life that we take for granted. I have to raise my hand here because I am guilty myself of taking daily situations for granted that I should be thankful for.
Have you ever felt like God was silent and didn’t hear anything you were praying about? Your prayers seem like an eternity for him to answer and things just aren’t working out? What about those times that you really needed him and felt he wasn’t near?
Pain is inevitable.
I once heard a quote ” God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” C.S. Lewis.
My first thought was how profound this quote is. How many times have I ignored those little soft whispers and especially the very loud shouts God uses to get our attention.
