BE BOLD TODAY
Hey everyone! I'm finally back in the blogging world, Paul is 6 weeks old now! A lot has changed in my day to day life since he was born.....obviously. But even more so the way I think about things, and how I make decisions, and let's be honest - my anxiety! I want to share with you what God has been trying to show me, long before Paul came along!
"Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." - Isaiah 43:19
I was reading this today and it reminded me about trust, and change in Christ. STORY TIME. For those of you who don't know, I am officially a stay at home mom, and I LOVE it. But it is very difficult sometimes. I was "preparing" myself to be a stay at home mom before Paul arrived. Well you can read about it, but it's like describing to someone what it feels like to ride a roller coaster. If they have never ridden one themselves, they won't truly know how it is! Not to downgrade other jobs, there are plenty of struggles, and joy, and happiness in lots of jobs! But like I said I was trying to prepare myself. Well the first day I was home alone with my sweet boy, who I love so much, I called my husband by LUNCH time crying my eyes out asking him to come home. Ha, you can say all that preparation paid off. In my defense, I just had a baby so my hormones were through the roof, and honestly fear of me not being a good mom was the thing that scared me so much to the point of tears.
I didn't tell you that story for you to think I'm losing it or anything. I tell you that because in that moment when I got off the phone with John I felt this sense of peace. Ha, hormones. But more so, It was God reminding me to trust in Him, to find joy in the stressful, hard, lonely, and happy days, a reminder of the amazing calling God gave me to be a mom. On day two of just me and Paul it was great, I started off by praying for the day, my son, and my husband. Not that every day is perfect, far from it! But God is constantly reminding me of those things this month, and I still have hard days, but refocusing our minds in WHATEVER we do, toward Christ...that can change your whole day!
I want to end this post with saying how much I enjoy staying home and taking care of my son, even if this is just for a season in God's plan for me. I am so thankful for these days where he is growing up WAY to fast. Listen to your fears, and give them to Christ! What is God teaching you today?
