I try to remember this.
Some days all I want is to get behind a closed door and have some silence for 5 minutes.
When I was a younger mother of only 3 I struggled with being content a lot more. I felt my being home deep in unnoticed work was near imprisonment. It was never done, didn’t last and very rarely noticed by anyone.
I really struggled. I was unhappy and feeding my unhappiness was my focusing in all the wrong places. I knew it but just couldn’t get my emotions and thoughts under control. It just all felt so mundane and never ending.
I was really struggling. I knew what I was going was important and what I was suppose to do in my heart of hearts. I went to God and prayed. He helped me yet I continued to struggle not because going to God was not sufficient – NO it was the opposite. I just could not fully let go…… I continue to run to God and in His love and Patients He continued to always be there, listen and feed my soul and heart. One day I was in a Christian books store. I wanted something to read and but we all know not everything on a Christian Book store shelf is worth reading or God based. Just like not everything in an Organic Healthy Food store is not good for you. So I said a quick pray and he led me to a very tiny little book:The Invisible Woman: When Only God Sees by, Nicole Johnson
This book was a great Encouragement and is simple and small. Worth it in every way! Check it out.
