Hanging by a Thread

 Anyone else feel like they are hanging by a thread and about to completely lose it?  It has been such a crazy, emotional week in all aspects of life.  Weeks like these often leave me wanting to press the pause button on life, sit in a corner and cry. What’s crazy about it is that it’s not one big traumatic event. It’s just life. It’s the little things that can be so overwhelming.

I think about how we are about to begin a bible study about the little things in life and I know that it’s not a coincidence. It’s God. He is preparing my heart for all that He has in store for us through the next couple of weeks.

And as much as I want to throw my hands up and just quit, I am pressing on friends and I encourage you to do the same.

We’ve had some deep conversations in our home the last couple of days and it’s forced me to really examine my heart. To look at the small things like the laundry, dishes, carpool and packing lunches with gratitude verses looking at them like they’re a burden. They are ways that I bless my family and I am guilty of doing them with bitterness and resentment.

So today I’m asking God to do something big. I’m asking Him to change my heart. And I’m asking Him to help my unbelief because honestly I’m having a hard time thinking He can do it. Did I really just confess that to y’all?

Ugh. But it’s true. Do you ever feel this way? Doubt that God is strong enough to do something. I am working on trusting and believing. Will you join me? What can you ask God to do in your life that you don’t believe He can do? Ask Him to do it. Choose to believe.

If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed like me and you are ready to throw in the towel because the daily mundane tasks are weighing you down, I want to encourage you to stop.  Take a deep breath in and out.  Now name Five things that you are thankful for and think of someone that you can bless today and do it.

Being thankful and serving others always helps put my heart in the right place.

I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday! We’ve made it halfway. The weekend is almost here. Be encouraged my sweet friends. What you do matters.

“Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24
