Last night was hard. With my husband being out if town for military duty, I found myself home alone with my kids. Now that’s nothing new, but I by the end of the night, with all of it’s ups and downs, I was really stressed. I was going to do some school work, but I ended up passing out.
Now this morning wasn’t much easier. My oldest son and I had to have a talk and that was stressful in itself. Now I’m sitting here thinking about the things that I need to get done for today and it seems like a lot.
Being a mother isn’t always easy. There are times when it all feels like too much and those are the times that I have to take a step back and pray. If I’m completely honest, mothering isn’t the only thing that feels like that, at times, but that’s life.
I look forward to having a better day today, which means that I have to make it happen.
I’m getting ready to sit down at my trusty planner and write out my thoughts and plans for the day. Once I do that and confidently place one foot in front of the other, I know that God will take car of the rest.
In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. Proverbs 16:9
This is my scripture for today. I have to remember that God is the one that will order things as I make plans. Confidently, I give God all that I have today, knowing that He will take care of me and all that I have.
As stressful as yesterday was, today, I begin anew and refreshed. I take it upon myself to take authority in my life and not to allow any confusion. When it come in, I will not entertain it, but instead I will take a stand an move forward as God has called me to do in his word.
