I'm just having one of those tiring mommy weeks. My boys have all been sick with coughs and colds. I've been up two or three times a night. I've been sick myself. I'm worn out.
These are the tough moments of life, but I have to know that one day I'll sleep through the night and one day my kids will be grown. It won't be long till I'm an empty nester, wondering where the years went.
My single years are now a blur to me. What used to seem like painfully long time to wait for a husband and children are not a distant memory.
Those days were hard, but I am thankful I enjoyed that time. God used it to prepare me for these days. He is my constant. He sustains me through it all.
Each season of life will present different challenges. Don't let those challenges keep you jealous of others. Don't let those challenges distract you from knowing and clinging to God. Don't let those challenges keep you from staying focused.
Keep pouring your life out to others. It's not about you. It's not about me. It's about giving God glory no matter what life throws your way.
I was drinking a diet coke from McDonalds and the cup read "Thirst for Glory". This cup has Olympic pictures and a call to "go for the gold." We're not to thirst for our own glory, but for His glory. Keep that as your focus and these life challenges will fade in the background!
