Joyful Mother wasn't very Joyful....

A short little post to let you know I AM OK!! 

I know the last post was rather hopeless than hopeful.   I am doing much better and I do feel like there has been a bit of a breakthrough in my attitude.  I have been letting every little thing on this journey bother me so very much.  It doesn't matter what it wass....it was bothering me.  I was even snappy to my mother-in-law the other day and it wasn't very pretty or Christ Like at all!!  :(   

I am so very thankful my mom-in-law loves me unconditionally and embraces me even when I am ugly.  Seriously!  I was letting everything bother me!!  I had been making myself out to be a burden or a "visitor" rather than a daughter.  I wasn't allowing myself to be accepted rather I was making myself out to be a burden.  A burden that no one had put on me.  I did this to myself by listening to the enemy's lies.  After a good talk with my mom-in-law and with the Lord, I realized the ugliness in my heart. 
 I shed quite a few tears.  

I realized also that I felt so out of control in this whole journey.  I found myself like a woman in labor needing something to change quick or else I DONT KNOW WHAT I WILL DO!!!  ha ha... 
 I gotta laugh because this is how I had been feeling. 
Ok...and maybe still do a bit if I let myself...  :( 

And...
I hadn't been seeking the Lord with honest faith but rather with fear and anxiety.  My actions have not been Christ-Like and know this had to change.  I know I have to make an honest to God effort to CHOOSE the right thing rather than go down a road of darkness.  Darkness only leads to sin.  

I didn't mean to confess my heart......but this Joyful Mother wasn't very joyful.  
But....but....but.....
I have seen a light of hope and I will follow this because I know the true Joy is there!!


And what else gives me Joy....my children!!



Seriously....
Why be unhappy when you dwell with these cuties who do such lovely things for their mommy's birthday!

So glad you are feeling better.
I remember reading somewhere about the part in Psalms about walking in the shadow of death~
It stated that God is still there - that's where the shadow comes from.. without light.. there would be no shadow..
I'm going a terrible time conveying this.. but it always gives me hope to keep walking during the dark time.

Blessings

You said something that really pierced me: "I hadn't been seeking the Lord with honest faith but rather with fear and anxiety." How often do I seek the Lord with fear while faith takes a backseat?

Sounds like you had some breakthroughs and revelations! Happy Birthday, and thank you for being so transparent.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
