When You Feel Like Throwing In The Towel

/

Ever have days, when life is beyond overwhelming? When there’s too many tasks & people needing you “right now” and the most important things in your life seem to be suffocating beneath the towel you’re contemplating throwing in!?

Parenting is HARD; step-parenting is harder, and sometimes I honestly feel like throwing in the towel & running for cover!

    I am so encouraged when I see god moving in the lives of younger woman. May He continue to richly bless you as you serve Him by serving others.Matthew 6–33&34 are very special verses to me.

    Your words and His word in this post encourages step-moms as well as anyone who’s contemplating throwing in the towel Satin. The word of God you live truly is far more important than the word of God you speak. That’s what will make a difference and help shape the life and heart of your precious stepson .I’ve always marveled at how you are in tune with God’s voice in your heart and I wouldn’t be surprised if you were called to be a witness (His word you live) for your stepson’s mom…at such a time as this!

When Your Heart Is Overwhelmed

I can’t speak for you, but right now, my heart is completely overwhelmed! Many things weigh heavy on my heart and mind, so Psalm 61:2 is a verse I am warmly embracing. People I love… Trying to be brave and strong on the outside, while crumbling on the inside; afraid, yet clinging to Jesus. People…

Behind the Scenes

The other day, as I walked into the house after a long day of work, my beautiful black Labrador, Gigi, greeted me with her usual bouncy jump & kisses hello. It was in that moment that the Holy Spirit impressed on my heart the following: “In the same way that Gigi is excited to see…
