Have you ever been in a season where there seems like there’s a million things to do? To the point where your surroundings seem to be blurry? Where at times the biggest challenge of the day is to simply look forward to what is right in front of you?
This has been one of the most challenging seasons for me personally since becoming a believer. I’m thankful as I’m going through it because I can see more and more what God is doing, how He is growing me and sanctifying me, and at the same time it’s incredibly painful, vulnerable, and continues to reveal to me how often I really don’t trust The Lord.
Not too long ago I was going about my day pretty overwhelmed with all the things we had to do from selling our house, finding a new home, getting ready to leave to a new city, etc. and that night let’s just say our kids weren’t being the most obedient of kids, and I found myself almost treating them like “they were in the way.” I know that sounds terrible, but it’s true. I probably should have called this post my sinful confession, but I’ve already done that multiple times here and here. :)
That night I was at a loss for words because I realized how I went about my day. I was doing all of these things, but I was neglecting HOW I was doing all of them. I quickly threw character out of the window because it was “in the way” of my performance to get everything I needed to get done. That same night, I had a friend share with me some great wisdom on this.
