My Plantar Fasciitus is back and again it is causing problems…
The biggest is that I haven’t the emotional, mental or physical energy to cope. Boy have I missed it! As I struggle my way through the laundry, the clutter, another meal, I’m thinking- this is too much.
As I fight back the tears after another fight with with my tween, the power struggle with my son and wonder why I thought parenting was ever easy, a thought crosses my mind….
Maybe I should just quit. Throw in the towel and go…
But motherhood is for life, and so I stay and turn my tears to God. Pouring out my heart, I shared with him the frustrations, asking for wisdom and patience in dealing with the situation.
This verse is perfect. A reminder to be strong. An encouragement to keep going. A lifeline to rescue me. A promise to bring me peace.
But most importantly, an acceptance of who I am, just the way I am.
But not just for me, for my tween who is in need of love and acceptance.
Wisdom on how to deal with my strong willed son.
A simple message, a simple verse, yet a profound meaning.
Thank you Lord, you are indeed Mighty to save.
