I've been slacking in so many aspects...personally and spiritually. And today, I'm calling myself out on it. No more excuses. No more pity party. No more relying on someone else-or even myself. I'm relying on Jesus!
I've been really struggling for the last several months in a few of my personal relationships. I feel like I've gone from a (halfway) decent wife and mom to a complete failure. My house is a constant mess, I really like to order out more than I cook (I hate cooking) and I have to have an internal agrument with myself to get the housework done...and more often than not that tends to fall through.
I can not even imagine how the moms of today are doing it. Working, taking care of the housework and cooking, taking the kids to all their extra curricular activities...it was exhausting for me, and that was 15 to 20 years ago.
As much as I love running a Bible study with an awesome group of ladies, there are things about God and His love, grace and mercy toward us, that I need to learn or be reminded of.
More often than not these days I feel like I'm coming up short in just about every area of my life. More than likely it's Satan playing his usual games and planting doubts in my heart and mind. Sadly, I'm all too willing a partcipant lately.
