Feeling weak & unable to move a muscle is a familiar feeling by the end of my days. I am giving everything I have to just keep my house running, support my parents in their struggles, keep my sibling informed and love on my kids & husband.
When I get out of bed, I don’t know exactly what my day is going to look like. I pray that God guides me to the most important things & that I can ignore all the rest that is clamoring my name.
The lesson that has hit me over and over recently is that God gives me exactly what I need when I need it.
-A friend emailed me with encouragement while she is going through a horrible time of her own but she took the time to speak words of wisdom to me.
-My husbands co-worker unexpectedly provided us with a meal on a day I wasn’t free to make food.
-Great children who keep working on their school work even when I am in the midst of caring for my mom.
-Another friend texted me a scripture one day & the next I looked it up. God used it to help me encourage my mom.
While I might be impatient for things to change or get frustrated that I can’t in my own strength make things here all better, I feel so loved and cared for as God guides me and provides what I need. There is so much to be grateful for in the midst of our struggles.
