struggling through...

The last few days have been such a challenge for me mentally, physically and spiritually. I have been challenged to be creative for lunch with the very little food we have in the house right now. I have never ending school work to get done, grading, creating lesson plans and typing out test. I never seem to be able to catch up with myself. I have had a hard time with my quiet time. Honestly I have not had ANY quiet time.  How do you all do it? Especially those of you that get up and go to work each morning!  I know I should be doing it. I know it is part of my  mental health issues right now but I can not seemed to stay on it or stick with something. 
I often pray for someone  to ask me what did you read- each day, or what is God speaking to you today. ACCOUNTABILITY- a word so many of us hear but very a few of us have or live out. What is true accountability mean?  
Why have we gotten so busy in our society to stop and see how each of our brothers and sisters are doing spiritually?
 Is it because we are so self absorbed that we really do not care?
 Is it not the spiritual that should be more important in our lives? 
Or have we made our financial gain, and materialism a god in our lives? 
I truly long for the old days- the days when neighbors were not afraid to stop by unannounced. The days where families had traditions. The days when your relationship with Christ was important to everyone not just your pastor or preacher. Are those days truly gone forever?

  1. Angie,

    It's not easy being a single working Mom!! There was a time, when the kids were younger, that it worked best for me to have my quiet time at night after they all went to bed. Now I kind of split it. I get up early and I have a quiet time, prayer and a devotion. Then in the evenings I do my Bible studies. I'm praying that you will find a balance and begin to feel better!



I love comments.. I love to hear from you and know you have blessed me with your thoughts
