Family of 5

Today I found myself looking at old photos as Jaz wanted/needed one for school, of her when she was little. It got me thinking back on how simply life was at this stage….. before the eyes of my heart were opened to the Spiritual realm and how ‘messy’ it can make your life… But….. and it’s a very big but.. I also look back on these times and how much ‘spare’ praying, reading time I had… during feeds, while children slept etc etc etc when I could have been conversing with God and didn’t. It’s not that I purposely chose NOT to use these times to talk to Him.. it’s more that I had absolutely NO idea of the benefits of doing so.
So…. even though sometimes I think that it was easier with my eyes shut…. I am very quickly reminded of the close personal relationship I now have with my Heavenly Father… and just LOVE it !!!
I hope you have all had a great day !!! xx

OK, so here I am… on a Monday morning, well, it’s actually arv now, but oh well.  I am severely battle weary today.  Growing in the Lord comes with it’s struggles, but I am certain of two things…. One, He won’t take me to it if he can’t take me through it… and Two, with all struggles comes learning and growth.  

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through HIM that strengthens me.

At times, I am extremely happy with where I am in my walk with the Lord… at other times, not so much.  My prayer life is good…. I am in almost constant communication with Him, which I love, but….  I’m not always great at setting aside quality prayer time.. uninterrupted etc.  It is something I really must work on more diligently.  

I loved a slogan I saw yest which said “Live in such a way that if anyone was to speak badly of you, no-one would believe it”

I so want to live like that and to some degree, I think I achieve it…. but then there are the times that I slip back into ‘sinful human’ mode…  and I react to hurts from others in ways that would not be pleasing to the Lord.  Yet another thing to work on.  

I am in such an extremely strange season at the mo….. I have such wonderful friends that surround me, but at times I feel the most overwhelming loneliness.  It is not logical, as I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am not alone.  Attacks??  I’m not sure, as I don’t like to give the enemy more credit than he deserves.  

I am grateful though for a loving family… my own little one, and my original 5 (+ spouses).  Not everyone is so blessed !!  

I will continue to grow and walk in the Lord !  

See you next time peeps !!! 

 

We could change the world !!
