I try to be a good mom, a godly woman, maintain the house, maintain my blog, raise money for my daughter’s school trip next year and encourage those in my life (and those who read me each time I post), but it can be darned hard!
Sometimes I feel like I am just simply spilling my guts and no one is listening and the kids will turn out how they are supposed to regardless of my intervention, I feel like the house will always get to be a mess again tomorrow and that no one really cares if they get fresh fruits and veggies over something with a two year expiry date.
BUT I still try.
Because I love them and because I love myself and because I know that all love comes from God and God asks us to preach to the masses and to simply try. When we ask ourselves that bumper sticker questions “what would Jesus do?” it becomes easy, he would take the time to help the elderly person who is shopping and struggling to read labels. He would slow down and listen to children’s stories no matter how far-fetched, he would pick up the house because he knows that chaos in the home distracts from our mission of following him.
He is smart like that
So, even though I often don’t want to, I asked myself what Jesus would have me do, and I try!
What is one area where you feel like you are trying lately?
