As you know, I’ve started working outside the home 32 hr/wk.
This really cuts into my time for other things.
There are so many other things I want to be doing. I want to be teaching my kids lots of amazing things. I want to be spending more time with my man. I want to be writing all the things that are within my heart. I want to be exercising more and decorating more and eating more. (Yes, I meant that.)
I want more time to simply sit with the Lord and listen to Him. To talk with Him.
I just came out of a season where I got to do all those things.
It was wonderful and I’m so grateful for it.
And now I’m choosing to be grateful for this season too.
I believe that the Lord opened this door, and I believe that He has a purpose in it. I trust that I can lay down some of the things and that if they are truly of Him, He can keep them. He will resurrect them in His time. And if they aren’t truly of Him, I’m happy to let them go.
Will I ever finish my book I’ve been working on for almost 3 years now? I hope so. But right now there is something more for Him to show me. There is something else for me to learn. I don’t have all the pieces yet, and instead of making my own pieces just so I can say to you all that I’ve done it, I’m choosing to wait on His pieces. To let Him decide when those pieces fall into place.
I’m practicing taking small steps in the things that He is prompting me in. Like exercising and reading with Micaiah. Photography with Isaac. Driving with Joshua. Trusting with Caleb. Pursuing with RC. Writing this blog. Standing and proclaiming with the Saints. Praying with the Spirit. Resting in the Lord.
Focusing on what He has put before me to do, and choosing to lay down all the other things that I want to do. And in doing so, finding a truly light burden and truly easy yoke. Living by His Life, not mine.
