When Life Falls Apart

This past week I have been quite on the social media front. Life has been down right crazy for me. In fact it was like everything came apart at once. All at once my quietness became a crazy complicated mess.

When Life Falls Apart

This was my status on my personal Facebook a few weeks ago. As you can tell anxiety attacks and I have a history. This past week I had a set back. The trigger…

An event happened that made me feel like the worst mom on earth. It hit the core of who I am.

As a special needs mom I research for the latest “techniques,” keep up to date with theories, and listen to my daughters team. I pray to God about things. This day I did everything “right” but still had a huge behavioural issue in a public place.

It hurt me…

After spending time being quite, and praying life started to calm down. The first night I got to sit down and catch up on my Exodus Bible study was Wednesday.

If you listen carefully to what he says and do all that I say I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you.

Exodus 23:20

The thing that stood out to me was that by listening to God, turning my eyes to him during my struggles he took my enemy away and replaced it with peace.

Fact: I am a good mom.

Lie: I am a bad mom..

Fact: God loves me.

Our discussion question from that day was, What are some ways that you ensure that you take time to rest?

When Life Falls Apart: RestFor me rest can quickly fall between my fingers. I get caught up in my daily to do list. Another issues each day rest for me looks very different.

Some days I need quiet time with a drink just sitting still. Other times I need my bible, worship music and my journal.

One thing is for sure. If I don’t try to put Rest at the top of the Mommy to do list each day it doesn’t happen.

Some days even with rest at the top of the list it doesn’t happen. My life is a big mess but I need to make sure I take rest especially in times of trouble waters.

That rest with God keeps me going!

  1. God often takes me to the bottom…drains me…and brings me back to the foot of His throne. We just need to remember that moment by moment, one day at a time to trust in Him….and he promises, He will give us rest. Thanks for sharing with the Thursday Blog Hop! Hope you can visit me http://www.over50feeling40.com. Have a great weekend!

  2. Thank you for sharing with us at Grace & Truth. Rest is something that I’ve learned I need to schedule into my life, otherwise it’s all just too overwhelming. God had to really teach that lesson to me – over, and over, and over…. 😉
    Blessings!
