The last few weeks (or months depending on when you start counting) have been a whirlwind of craziness. Granted, I know our everyday routine isn't exactly simple. However I can't help but feeling like things have been extra crazy as of late. I have spent all summer just going & going & going. My to-do lists have been growing & I see no sign of an end. I've had a few bouts of insomnia even though I'm exhausted most of the time. I'm just running from one fire to the next, trying to put them out.
I have come to realize that this is no way to live. I miss having some quiet time for myself, time to sleep, read/blog, or just to play with the girls. I've recently had Philippians 4:6 come into my path several times. I think it's a not-so-subtle message from the Almighty that I need to make a part of my daily recitation.
So, I'm going to try my hardest to present all my anxieties to God, knowing that He will take care of them. Certainly this approach can be challenging because it requires surrender. But I think we all could use a life jacket when we feel like we're drowning. And God's love provides the best life jacket available!
