How ARE you doing?
I'm a stay-at-home mom as most of you may know. I have a 2 yr old (boy) and 6 yr old (girl). My life is very repetitive. When you have young children life can seem to run together. Your days, your weekdays, and weekends. I believe when you go from 1 child to 2 children, you are just not able to put as much thought and energy into certain things as you use to when you had 1 child. Feeling like you are doing the same thing day in and day out can be fustrating. Many questions can arise. Such as; "Am I doing what I am suppose to be doing right now?", "Is there something else additional that I need to be doing". My life is very full, there is plenty to do, but these questions do arise. Children can be draining, and you don't always know what to do to re-fuel. I believe in living an inspiring life and I believe a mom inspires her children and her spouse. What do you do when you are feeling uninspired yourself. My encouragement to you is; not to panic. Don't panic, God once told me that if I want to know how I'm doing that I need to look and see how Jesus is doing and that's how I'm doing. The measure of how we are doing in life is not our feelings, it's not our inspiration of lack thereof, it is not our excitement; these things will change from day to day. The bible says we are the righteousness of God in Christ. This is what we are despite everything else. I find that when we start to look to ourselves for answers and solutions it can be grievous. But when we take our eyes off ourselves and put them on Jesus and make Him our only measure of how we are doing, it's only a matter of time before everything else lines up. Take your eyes off yourself, put them on Jesus. Keep confessing that you are the righteousness of God in Christ. Keep remembering that Jesus is seated at the right hand of God and you are seated with Him in the heavenly places. That you have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Check out Deuteronomy 28 to see what those blessings are. Keep your eyes off you, off your feeling, and off everything else. I just reminded myself of the 1 thing that I need, I hope I reminded you to. God Bless!!!
