I’m trying to get things done!
So many little jobs all day long! There are issues with family, issues with friends, issues with my body and lately I’ve been dealing with a myriad of issues. Some that are tough and seemingly unsolvable and others that are small and easily attainable like say… laundry-ugh.
Yes I have four children and they can slow processes down a bit sometimes but things still need to get done. It could be easy for me to retreat into my nuclear family and ignore the world around me but I believe God has called me to more than that. I’m not only a mother- I’m a wife, a friend, a sister, a niece, a cousin and a daughter too.
Right now my youngest is 9 weeks old and I have found myself doing a balancing act- making phone calls, paying bills, getting out… showering! I’ve had to prioritize my energies in a real way.
That friend struggling in there marriage, that family member stirring up strife, my child in need of attention, my marriage, my physical body, my relationship with God- it all needs to be responded to.
But I’m taking care of things- and it’s hard. Many times during the day when I’m trying to get things done I hear myself saying in my head “This is hard” but you know what? God gave me a spirit of tenacity and come hell or high water I will get these jobs done.
Yes I will. I will receive encouragement; I will pull up my pants. I will get all these jobs done. “For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.- 2 Timothy 1:7NASB” and I think that applies here too!
