319: Shine On

Shine on, shine on
And let the others see
You've got your victory


This afternoon featured a spectacle of myself in utter defeat and despair in light of the impossible tasks ahead of me. "How can one person do it all?" I entreated my husband, to which he replied, "You can't."
He's right. When I trust myself to get it all accomplished it's impossible. But there is a light within, where the Holy Spirit resides, and when I look to the finished work of Christ and trust him instead of myself, he will accomplish great things. In him, I've already got my victory.

    What are all these things that need getting done? Just curious.
    And what kind of candle set is this? Or are you just capturing the flames as solid?

    You know, being a wife, mother, feeding all the people in your household, educating children and training them to be functional members of society…..it’s a lot! I feel overwhelmed just by getting nutritionally sound meals in everyone’s mouths, nevermind all the other stuff 🙂
    LED battery operated candles. They are no substitute for beeswax, but they’re certainly more kid friendly.

    OH! all THAT stuff :)… yes, there are moments when it hits you full force, but then the times of resting in the good and plenty of God let you live peacefully just one day at a time… which is all we are required to live (though, a plan never hurt anyone!)Remember, love God, love each other. I will pray that you find your rest, a healthy digestive tract, and joy in your now. Love you, Mitch!

    Oh Kim! I have had a week of this feeling… wish I had read your blurb earlier! Appreciate it! I might have had a brain fart cuz how else could I have forgotten that the Spirit totally helps Mama’s with the mama jobz too!
