Guys! 2018 is hectic!! I really don’t know whether I’m coming or going half the time.
My career in teaching is seriously on; Theeee. Next. Level in terms of all the planning, assessing, resourcing, coaching, counselling….(and the list goes on), I am called to do…..I know the Lord must be preparing me for something out of this world, but W.O.W….it’s super tough on this l’il ole single Mum…..
I made the difficult decision to move my son to the school I work at, so I could streamline my days and use time more efficiently. This means my two eldest now walk to and from school on their own *insert loud wailing here.* My babies are growing up and I’m in complete shock and awe at the process….
Anyway back to my frenetic year! My sister is getting married in July, in the same month our brother’s first baby is due, then I have a friend’s wedding in Spain to attend in June, not to mention my second daughter’s birthday and my birthday in May, then my son’s birthday in June, add to that numerous school trips; my eldest daughter is pleading to go to Wales for 5 days in September with the school *insert more hysterical wailing here,* other social events are cropping up at every turn and on and on and and on and on…..I know I’m sounding horribly ungrateful, but it’s hard navigating all of this as a lone parent. My head hurts trying to sort finances, logistics, outfits, praying protection and wisdom over my ever growing children….Lord I know you equip the called, but the journey is still very tough.
In spite of all of this, I am seeking to dwell in His peace. I run to my hiding place in Him. All I have is His word. He tells me to be still and know that He is GOD. He leads me by the still waters. He restores my soul. In Him I do not and will not lack any good thing. Thank You for your promises Lord! You never fail and You never change! Glory!!
“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalms 46:10 KJV
