As I read other women's blog, I am so inspired with things I want to do - wake up early, exercise, do crafts with my kids, cook, read, read, and read some more, be more organized, appreciate God's grace and mercy more, sit at His feet more, serve more, Study God's Word more, appreciate my blessings more - that one is a biggy-,be a better wife, be a better friend, be a better daughter, be a much better mom, be a better preacher's wife, etc., etc. My problem is my "life" keeps getting in the way. Or should I say, I keep letting my life get in the way. I frustrate myself so much by knowing what I need to do, desiring to do what I know I need to do, then not doing it because I stay up too late, don't wake up early enough, make bad decisions during the week that cause me to get behind, am just plain lazy, or don't plan my time wisely enough, etc. etc. Praise God we have a chance everyday to start over and try again!!! We have a God who loves us and will carry us through no matter where we are, what we are going through, or what we are facing. There is a wonderful song out there that has really encouraged me this week and the words are very humbling. It has done wonders in helping me put things in perspective. Here it is:
There is no problem too big, God cannot solve it. There is no mountain too tall, He cannot move it. There is no storm too dark, God cannot calm it. There is no sorrow too deep, He cannot soothe it. If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders, I know my brother that He will carry you. If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders, I know my sister that He will carry you. He said come on to me all who are weary, And I will give you rest.
What a blessing and what a mighty God we serve!!
In Christ Alone, Kayce
