Control

the kids playing in the woods

I have been feeling like an airplane spiraling out of control these last few weeks. The adoption process, dealing with a very busy toddler and a preschooler, and the whole schooling issue has been a lot. I feel like my house is always dirty, the kids are never getting along, our daughter in Africa will never come home, and no one is ever happy. I know that is not true, but it's how I feel. I love God's promises in His word:

Matthew 11:28-30
28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

For today, my goals are
  • spend time in God's word
  • take a nap
  • clean, declutter and childproof (even more) the living room
  • pray for my husband

Some times it feels like I'm just treading water and I have to remind myself of what I did do today--might not have conquered the worlds but I got four kids off to school after morning devotions, walked on the treadmill thirty minutes, read Proverbs, wrote two devotions....

Great verse. I am burdened and weary tonight.
