Too many commitments?
Where can we find help
at such times?
I've been there.
I'll likely be there again.
We do not need to give up in despair ~
There is something that can be done!
Refocus on those things that REALLY matter.
It may be helpful to write it all down.
A list, perhaps?
Just point form ~
things that *must* be done.
Then prayerfully consider the list.
What can be crossed off?
You may find that the bare basics
are all that are left.
It may be that in this season all that can be
handled are the bare basics.
And that is O.K.A.Y.
God calls us to be faithful.
But to what?
To the things we've "signed up for"?
The things others expect of us?
The things we expect of ourselves?
Or to HIM?
And to HIS calling on our lives?
Just Do the Next Thing.
But be sure that *next* thing
is in line with what HE desires.
Certainly, if you are the Mom of any
little people...the next thing may be to
feed them, bathe them, read to them...
You will know what it is.
I will too.
Wait on the LORD first thing in the morning.
Lay out the day before HIM.
And the LIST.
Pray for wisdom to know what you should try to
accomplish that day.
If it's *just* feeding, clothing and caring for
the little people (spiritually as well as physically)~
That is enough.
Your work is noble.
It is a high calling to raise up the next generation.
For they will raise up the next generation.
Who will in turn raise up the next...
Are you beginning to see the picture?
Are we raising them up for HIM?
Susannah Wesley was a great example of a
Mother who had this higher vision.
Why do we know about her?
Because of her children...
And her God!
