Taking it one day at a time….


30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?

32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.

33 But seek ([a]aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness ([b]His way of doing and being right), and then all these things [c]taken together will be given you besides.

34 So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble. (Matthew 6:30-34)

In Life, I wear ALOT of hats. (Not to toot my own horn, but I’m busy) I’m a wife, a mother, An author, a blogger, a co-worker, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a student, and an aunt. Life can sometimes get really, really hectic, and all we can really do is deal with it.

Sometimes, it’s about how we deal with it. We may worry, we may take it out on others, or we may become withdrawn and overwhelmed. These are not good examples of how we deal with stress. We have to remember that even though we may be overwhelmed, the best way to deal with stress is to first  1.) Pray for wisdom on what to do 2.) Get organized and plan out what needs to be done 3.) do your best and don’t look back.

Being a first time mom and going back to work was crazy! At that point and time I was still getting up in the middle of the night to feed my son  more than once, and then getting up a few hours later to go to work. I honestly don’t know how I made it! My husband helped out alot, he was so supportive and took up a lot of the responsibility in the home, and we worked together to get a lot done, but it seemed like the  days were getting shorter and shorter.

I decided to get more organized, and what couldn’t be done that night just had to wait. We as humans always worry, sometimes about things we can’t even control, but we have to remember that if we choose to live for God, he will always make sure we are taken care of, he has our backs.

As time progressed, the days got easier, the chores lighter, and there was more time to spend with my family. Was my house sparkling clean? Some days, but not always, it would get better, and it did. I had to have patience with myself that I would obtain a balance in getting everything done, it took some time, but I’m still walking into it.

To all the new moms out there, and even to those women who have a lot on their plates, remember, God has your back. He will help you get organized, he will send people to assist you in getting things done, and he will help you finish everything in excellence, especially if it’s a God ordained project. Don’t worry about tomorrow, focus on doing your best, plan your days, and let God guide you on how to be the best you can be in every area that may stress you out.

 

Be confident in him,
