I got an email this morning inviting me to see my Interruptions as Opportunities, specifically opportunities to live every moment for God’s glory.  This is difficult for me as I feel that motherhood is a constant stream of interruptions.  And if there is one thing I hate… it is being interrupted.

I joke with my husband that never again will any of my trains of thought ever “make it to the station”, they will somehow just evaporate into oblivion or crash into the giant zone of forgetfulness like they do in the movie “Inside Out”. My life is a series of unfinished projects and lost puzzle pieces. I forget what I am saying mid-sentence most of the time because my brain has become they typical mush that most mother’s experience around this time in their child raising careers.

And I am tired…

But, sometimes I wonder if my exhaustion comes from fighting so hard against something I am meant to embrace.

Discernment, Quiet and Listening to God, When life is Hard

When it Feels Like God is Silent…

What are we supposed to think when God is silent? If He truly loved us wouldn’t He speak? We are seeking desperately for answers, for encouragement, for consolation… and yet we are met with quiet. Why? Did I do something wrong? Does He not love me? Does He not care? Is He even listening?

Some of our darkest moments happen when we feel far from God, or rather that He feels far from us.

Endurance, When life is Hard

When your burdens are too heavy….

“When the burdens of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.”  – Psalm 94:19

Most days I feel overwhelmed. There is so much work to do, so many decisions to make, so much wrong with the world, so much drama in my life… not to mention so many children to raise, so many meals to cook, so many words left to write, and so little time.

Is all this worth the effort??
