This week and next, all our fall activities start back up again! As much as I love this time of year and the busy rhythms it brings, we have had some medical things come up lately that have overwhelmed me and made it seem impossible to fit everything into our schedule. It has pushed me to a new level of dependence on the Lord because there is absolutely no way I can do it all. And it has revealed some areas where my faith is really, really small, and where I need to remember how big of a God I serve and how much He loves me and extends grace to me, especially when I have nothing to bring to the table but my own sin, anxiety, frustrations, and tears.
“Is anything too hard for the Lord?” Genesis 18:14
“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear.” Isaiah 59:1
“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27
“I know that you (God) can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Job 42:2
In the meantime, I am thankful for all the good things He has filled my life with! A sweet baby boy soon to be born, a husband who loves and cares for me sacrificially, a kitchen/dining room renovation that is almost completed, nine weeks of school in the books, beautiful fall weather outside, children to love and a house to clean…He has truly filled my cup to running over and I am so grateful.
