....when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Friends, I have been feeling overwhelmed lately.
This has been a rough week. Health-wise, I am sick with a nasty head/sinus cold. Elianna has tonsilitis, and Nathanael is coughing like crazy. Tomorrow I am in charge of the music at church and am not quite sure how that will work out with this awful sinus thing I have right now.
Everyone knows there are seasons of life where one starts to feel overwhelmed. Day-to-day activities just don't seem to go well, and though I am busy every minute of the day, there seems to be little to show for it. For example, yesterday I started making pizza for supper. What normally would take me only 20 minutes or so of prep time ended up taking 1 1/2 hours. Supper was rather late and I was rather exhausted by the time all was said and done. There just seems to be a lot going on right now.
While writing these things, I am keenly aware, however, of how minuscule my "problems" are compared to those of many people. I am suddenly convicted that my "problems" are actually things for which to give thanks.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. From 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Perhaps what I need most of all is an attitude adjustment.
I know you will understand that I need to take a break from the blog for awhile while I sort things out on the home-front :-)
