This is a photo of my desk. Not pretty. Lacking organization (just slightly!). A mess.
This is what my life sometimes feels like, too.
But my God reminds me that He is more than enough. When I am weak, He is strong.
I struggle with being a Martha when I want to be a Mary.
Here is the scripture I’m currently gnawing on:
“You do not have because you do not ask God.” James 2b
For me, the “do not haves” are not earthly possessions. It’s balancing my time with the discipline to divide things up more equally between relationships (God, husband, children) and responsibility. I seem to fail miserably at both much of the time. God showed me that I have not this desire because I ask not often enough for Him to be my more than enough in this struggle.
Off to ask my God to help me balance, to be the wife, mom, sister, daughter, and friend He created me to be. I used to pray this prayer regularly, as in every. single. day. I’m going to make that commitment again, claiming James 2b.
Have a blessed weekend!
