There are some people that will continue to speak of how they doubt themselves in order to get compliments from others. Now, although my ladies bless me tremendously with their support and words of encouragement, it is not why I share with them my doubts and struggles. I share with them because they continue to guide my heart and mind back toward God.
For the last few years the last note I make on most of my daily journal entries is ‘My life is yours God. Use me.’ And for the most part I mean it. Then the “Buts” come along.
It can be overwhelming and frightening. But I know we have a God that loves us. Through Him we have HOPE in this situation. When I checked my email earlier this morning I found this scripture in Exodus. And it fits so well.
I hope I'm not the only one here but my faith can be like a yo-yo. One day it's strong and I feel like I can take on the world and the next I can feel like the slightest breath of wind would knock me over.
One memory comes to mind all the time...one that seems to demonstrate how inadequate I feel as a mom.
