I wonder...


I have been so tense. There is more for me to do than I can do in a day, the kids have had a little bit of a hard time transitioning into the school year, and my Mother-in-law is in the hospital.

I keep trying to talk myself out of this tense buzz, but I haven't been able to shake it. I wonder if the root is lack of faith. Isn't that really the root of all our problems? If I really trust in God, why am I so tense. God has everything under control, why am I so tense?

I think I like having and being in control much more than I like to admit, that's what I think. I want to know what the future holds - now!

God please forgive my lack of faith. I know You hold the future and nothing surprises You. I know You only want the best for all Your children and that You can use any and ALL circumstances to accomplish Your will. Please flood me with Your peace and I choose to look to You and not to the circumstance. Thank You for Your Love.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

Hey Debbie! (I found your blog through Starr's and Brandy's blogs.) I just wanted to say that I love you! I'll be praying that you can celebrate the success of finishing your first week of school and that the tension will ease as God gives you grace to keep putting one foot in front of the other, trusting Him despite the emotional storms brought on by all the rough circumstances. You're doing AWESOME and you really inpsire me. Love you. Thanks for being so real! I hope we can get together with Nova soon for coffee and homeschool encouragement...

The beginning of the school year at a new school has added extra tension in my life. I can so relate.

Thanks so much for your encouraging words - it is hard not to cry so thank you so much. I don't see how I can encourage anyone, but you sure do encourage me! I never knew you are a blogger too!
