Do you ever look at someone else and wonder how they do it all? I see women who run business, are doctors, make homemade and über healthy meals seven nights a week, have beautifully decorated homes. How do they do it? How are they doing it all? I’m trying, but it’s not going so well. Obviously, this, comparing myself, is something I struggle with.
Then it dawned on me. I don’t have to do it all, I can’t. No one can. I must only consider what God is calling me to do at this time in my life. What He wants me to use my time and talents for. At this time in my life He has called me to be a homeschooling mother to my children…and He has also recently seen fit to bless us with news of baby number four! Right now, as I battle the joys of morning sickness, motherhood, and teaching my little boys…I am trying to remind myself to focus on what God wants from me, and not what I want from me.
That doesn’t mean I don’t have expectations, or goals for my days and weeks…I just need to keep them in check with the “bigger picture.”
As long as I am doing right by God, I’m doing okay!
