As I have discussed many times, we are in transition. We have no idea what’s to come in the next several months. This has been frustrating for me. As a planner, this has caused me some rough days lately. In the past few days, I have come to the conclusion that all I can do is live today. If I’m so focused on next week, I’m not focused on what needs to be done right now. The kids have needs; they need to be fed well, taken care of, taught, and loved. They can’t afford for me to be so concerned about next week that I don’t concern myself with today.
So, several days ago I made the decision that it doesn’t matter what will happen next week, I have to focus on what God has called me to today. Today he has called me to taking care of my family to the best of my ability. It doesn’t matter where we live, that’s what He has called me to in this season. Through this, I have lived each day with much more joy, enjoying my time with my kids. I have seen a difference in them, and I know they can see a difference in me.
I’m thankful for this time of transition because I have learned some very valuable lessons.
If God allows you to be in a period of waiting, don’t get frustrated and mad… just live.
