Getting on Track...


Ever feel like you are juggling so many things at once? Yep. Me too. I think when I get to this point, I can easily not give everything my all. It can be such a struggle. Keeping up with the house, photography, social life, family, Josh & spending time with my Lord and Savior. So what gives? Unfortunately, so often it is the last thing: spending intentional time with the Savior of it all...

How backwards, right? My heart for Life as a Wife is to be real, authentic and honest. I am a real person and I want to share struggles on my blog because I am sure that I am not the only one fighting these things. Yet, I am thankful for Grace and the ablity to realize where I am wrong and ask God for help to get back on track.

That is me this morning.

No, I haven't ran away from him or hid in a corner but you know QUALITY time vs. QUANITY. Yeah... that's what I am talking about. Despite the clothes that so badly need to be folded, the photos I am behind on editing and the friend that will be here for breakfast in an hour. I pause. I rest in the Savior of the world and align my day upon HIS standards.

  8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you
Philippians 4:8-9

I'm in this same boat right now...think it was a coincidence that my devotional and the first two songs I heard this morning on Pandora were about Trust? Trust Him with everything, and you know, if we trust we'll probably have time for all those other things anyway!

Have a great day!

Thank you for the reminder! I really needed it today. I feel like I'm always running around like crazy and I need to make sure I spend time with my Savior.

I am TOTALLY with you here Ria. School is enough in it self...plus EVERYTHING else. I feel like I don't even have time to eat or sleep let along have my time with the Lord. How frustrating. Praise God for His GRACE... I would be a lost wreck with out it.
