We are all busy moms
with good hearts
and good intentions
do you sometimes feel like you are doing way too much?
There are circumstances where you cannot help the amount of time something takes you away from your family but there are definitely times when we can take a step back and adjust our priorities for our family and for our sanity.
Do you feel like this sometimes?
What comforts you in these crazy busy times in life when you are shuffling kids to sports, running to the grocery store, volunteering at school or maybe trying to work an at home business? Am I speaking to anyone out there?
I look to this bible verse:
“We can do all things through Christ”
I know this is short and simple but it reminds me that he is in charge and if I continue to keep my heart and my prayers directed to him, he will get me through. He has the big plan. He knows what I can handle and the direction I will take in life.
I actually have a journal in my car(where I seem to spend my life these days) and anytime I feel overwhelmed, I open it and write. I read prayer cards that I keep there too. They always comfort me.
I know it takes time to blog but it helps too. It is a free online journal where you can share your thoughts and feelings with the world and get great advice in return or just to know someone else out there is feeling the same way.
It’s just plain theraputic sometimes(especially when a spa trip is not available)!
Also visual therapy is great too: picture yourself like the woman below. How relaxing!
You are not alone. We are here for each other. If you are feeling overwhelmed you have 7 other women at your MOPS tables that are probably feeling the same way.
When we truly commit our lives to Christ, He directs our paths. Giving Him full control means that we will have the assurance that we will know the direction He wants our life to take.
