The Holy Spirit must really be on the move and doing some big stuff. Just in the last couple of days I have heard several people mention the need to be "REAL". It is crazy, the last two days I have really struggled with the fact that I feel like I always need to have on the happy, everything is great face. Well, I hate to brake it to you but everything is not always happy and great at my house. LIFE IS HARD and this week has been very trying. I think many times I feel the need to keep things private because of the people who like to say, "you brought it upon yourself" or "maybe you have gotten in over your head".
Honestly, I am tired of trying to be the perfect mom, wife and keeper of my home. It is exhausting!! I am just me, a child of God, who just wants to do what God has called me to. I want to love my husband the best I can. I want to train up my children in the ways of our Heavenly Father. I want to support and minister to my friends and neighbors. I want to care for the least in my community and across the world. I just want to be who God created me to be. I DO NOT want to be "perfect" in the eyes of the world but I AM "perfect" in the eyes of MY CREATOR.
So, that being said the next couple of days I am going to get "REAL" about life in our home. BUT I also want to make sure that I say even though I am exhausted, frustrated, and sometimes feel beaten down I would not change my life for anything. God created me for "such a time as this". He did not create me to live a comfortable, easy life without trials and troubles. I am not throwing a pity party for myself and I don't want sympathy. I just want everyone to know the "REAL" me and my "REAL" life.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME
