"Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." Psalms 55:22

My feet are throbbing and my body aches. My head is spinning and I am not sure which end is up. My children may or may not have the right lunch, and the laundry is piling up faster than I can blink. I'm running out the door with a shoe in my hand and my sanity lost in the chaos. I'm running in circles through a round-a-bout ; with no end in sight!

Breathe Amy....breathe.....

I'm not sure what is for dinner, or if eating is even a necessity as this point. When did I go from manageable to twilight zone? Everything I have been wanting and praying for is finally here, and now I am a walking disaster.  I'm crashing and burning faster than my feet can hit the floor.
Child locked out of house......I locked the door!


Sandwich for lunch..... minus the meat.

Noodles for dinner....burned.

Water bill....late.

Doctors appointment....forgot.

Sanity......WAY GONE!

I am so excited to finally be subbing, and yet I began to wonder if I can do this? Can I really work full time, and still be a mom, and a wife? How do people do this??? So, as I'm running through this obstacle of life, and tripping over every barricade in my way, I realize; I'm not running this race alone. Christ is running right beside me holding my hand; caring my load. My life is pulling me in a million different ways, and I took my eyes away from the one direction who can make everything make sense again.

I felt overwhelmed because I tried to do it ALL....I tried to do it alone. 

Yes, I have made about a million mistakes this week as I have transitioned from a stay at home mom to a working mom, but I have also learned a LOT! I have learned that I am not alone, and Christ will pull me through.  Dinner will get made, and laundry will eventually get done.

Life happens, and so often  will change in the blink of an eye. When obstacles arise, we have a choice; continue down the path alone or let Christ take the lead. I know I can do this because Christ will pull me through. He will run the race, and I will follow.

Tonight, I am blessed it is the weekend, and my husband is making dinner! Praise God for simple pleasures!!!
