rest (be still)

Image

Often things can get very busy here. There is always a baby to hold and nurse, a toddler who needs attention, diapers to change and wash, house and garden projects to tackle, and our recently adopted canine who has required extra work and training over the last few weeks. Life can get hectic easily, especially now.

There were a few moments this week where I felt utterly overwhelmed. I needed to stop and pray for patience, strength, and peace. Sometimes it is hard to see the end of a project, or a difficult situation. I must simply trust that this too will pass and that the struggles in this life are permitted to help us grow. I do have to be careful about taking on too much. Right now my focus needs to be on God and my family above all else. Everything will fit into place after these priorities.

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
