This Day

This day...and honestly the last few

have been,    well...


I've been sick for a week. I tried to fend it off myself.

Clearly, that didn't work.

I'm now on antibiotics {which I'm thankful for, but hate having to take}

I'm just that person.

You know...

the one that takes longer than normal...    to heal.

That's hard for me. Hard for me to admit that I'm weak. Hard to admit that I can't do it all, all the time. Hard for me to just rest. Hard for me to let my child watch {wholesome} cartoons for most {or all} of the day. Hard for me to let Renaissance show me the love of the Lord by serving our family through household work that I'm struggling with.

But, I'm learning...

Learning to rest...

Learning to trust the Great Physician

Learning to wait {more patiently.... ha}

Lessons that I'm certain I'll keep learning until Glory. Lessons that never end.

I've always loved what my parents taught me about reality. That what I feel doesn't always actually align with what is true. Emotions are important, but I was taught to never let them become dictators. To meditate on the Lord and his word... that's reality. I can choose... whether to trust myself, or to live with abandon for the Lord.

So, in light of that,

this day...

I choose to trust His heart for me. I choose to embrace each moment with my littles. I choose to ignore the domestic chaos. I choose to love Renaissance like crazy. I choose to remember that I am loved, valued, redeemed by the King of Kings.

May I make this choice everyday.

May I treat each and every person that I meet as a reflection of the Creator.

  1. I choose to keep on helping our One-Flesh through this...whatever it takes and however long it takes. You do SO much for others everyday! Take some time now to let others help you. And, of course, remember Isaiah 53: 4-5

    "Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed."

    Love you, Love you, Love you!
