Mighty to Save


It has been a tough couple of weeks. 

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.

About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
