a bit of honesty.

To be quite frank, I have been emotionally drained these last few days. I don't know why really, I don't know how to explain it. It is deeper than being a bit tired. And today I let it affect me. Now sitting here, the girls sleeping soundly, and their laundry done and folded neatly beside me I am regretting my emotions. I did not give all of me today and I regret that.

I am wondering how this happens, how I can let my emotions affect me so much when there are faces like this all around me?

These faces inspire me each day to put aside frivolous cares. To live each day fully and to pour out more than yesterday. Learning how to accept my emotions but not allowing them to control me. Having joy above all, beyond my circumstances. Choosing to give more of myself than yesterday because THIS is not about me.


  1. Amen! I am praying for you, for strength to continually be like Christ and not ruled by emotions or circumstances, but by the rock of Christ. He gives peace and He is your foundation. You are not tossed about by the sea. You stand firm.

  2. I thought of 2 Chronicles 20:17. Maybe not exactly what you're talking about, but I think it's always applicable :)
