Sometimes we all feel like life is burying us and we wonder what the heck God is doing or if he fell asleep on the job. This is such a good reminder to shift our perspective!
Anxiety, financial distress, challenging kiddos, the loss of a loved one, health issues.... these things aren't happening TO us, they are happening FOR us. The challenging conditions and circumstances we encounter help us GROW! 🌱
God plants us where he wants us to help us become more like HIM and discover HIS purposes for our lives. Don't just GO through it, GROW through it. 🌱
My life is chaos. Motherhood is crazy hard, and not in the cute “hashtag, mommin ain’t easy” kind of way...but in the kind of way that makes me question why God thought I would be a fit mother. I’m finally learning to speak the words “postpartum depression” out loud. I’ve discovered that I hate, I actually hate being a stay at home mama. I need to work. And I do work. But I just can’t get enough time away from my kids. It’s a hard truth to speak because I’m afraid others will think I’m not a good mom. I love them both more deeply than I thought possible — and yet, they are NOT the center of my universe. (Not that they should be, but that’s a whole other rant.) Right now, though, they are some strange small planets on the outskirts of my universe. I am not okay. But God is faithful to give me relationships that remind me of his love for me. Postpartum depression hit me HARD at four months PP and I haven’t been okay since. And it’s okay to say that I’m NOT okay. There is FREEDOM in confessing the brokenness.

Exactly 6.5 months ago I had to undergo emergency back surgery to avoid losing the use of my left leg. It was brought on from years of abusing my body at work, Fishing, and running. It’s been a life changer for me. I’m still struggling to accept my limitations but I’m slowly getting there. Above all I need to always remember to #bekind to myself. Life is a bit different now.
