One of those Weeks



Let’s just say the past few days have been some of those days where you just stop and think to yourself, “Is it Friday yet?!” Really nothing is going wrong, but it is one of those times in my life where I feel like I have a million things to do and only so much time in the day to do it.

We have a big project at school that is due next week for all the ELA classes which entails a TON of extra work on us teachers. Parent-teacher conferences are coming up. Not to mention the regular grading and planning I need to do.

I feel like every time I’m home there is something I’ve already put off multiple days, but now really does have to be taken care: dishes overflowing in the sink, piles of laundry laying around, making baby food puree, etc. Not to mention the daily grind of supper, feeding Jonathan, making sure things are laid out for the next day, and trying to love on Jonathan and our sweet fur baby, Theodore.

There just isn’t enough time in the day!!!

I’m usually pretty good about just going with the flow and making sure spending time with my son stays #1. This week has been different though. Everything has just hit. It hit me hard.

But today, I’m going to do my best to remember that I am NOT alone.  Regardless of what happens throughout the day, like half my post disappearing after I had completely finished it or my baby refusing to eat his supper, I have to remember that God is with me.  He knows my worries.  He knows my stresses.  He knows everything I’m feeling before I even bow my head to talk to Him.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  –James 1:2-3

He is here for us.  No matter the situation, no matter why I come to Him, I know he is ready to listen to all my complaints.  As any loving father would be, God is eagerly awaiting His children to call out to Him in any time of need.

Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains!  For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.  –Isaiah 49:13

So today is a new day.  Today I’m going to do my best to put the worries and anxieties aside.  Every challenge I face, my number one supporter is up there cheering me on.

So until next time,

Okie Mom
