Bless this mess
Y'all I have been so tired lately. I'm guilty of tackling the projects I want to do and putting the stuff I need to do on the back burner. The laundry mountain is peaking at the moment, and so many other things call for my attention. Life sure is busy right now but I wouldn't have it any other way. I try and remind myself that one day the laundry load won't be so big. The kid's bathrooms won't be filled with messes, and the grocery bill won't feel like we're paying another mortgage payment. I'm choosing today to love the mess I'm in and asking God for the strength to tackle it all.
"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
He sees us and knows what we need for this day but I pray today I will laugh more with my boys, enjoy the moments and the messes that are bound to be all around me. To not expect perfection from myself or anyone else because that isn't real life. He is continually showing me that this life is all about the people in our lives and not on all the things. I pray for each of you today, that whatever your situation, you will "seek Him and find Him when you seek with all of your heart." (paraphrased from Jeremiah 29:13)
P.S. The boys are learning to do their laundry... ;)
