Changing Directions

Yesterday morning I woke up at 9am, in complete and utter pain. By back hurt from having an unborn child laying on my spine, my ankle and foot were sore from God knows what...and I was utterly tired from doing too much on Saturday and then staying up till after midnight. Although I will say I had a great time with friends Saturday night. So the first thought Sunday morning was we are NOT going to church. There is just no way I can get myself and 2 girls ready, plus my hubby. Not going to happen. And as I emptied my bladder I thought...I need to be at church today, there is ALWAYS something God wants to do in me on the days that I feel like I can't make it to church. We MUST go. So we made it, only 15 minutes late...and I was settled and seated during worship because of my hurt foot. And that is where God met me. He kept repeating the word 'Undone' to me....kept repeating the phrase "She's come Undone". And then it hit me like a wave, the tears flowed. I realized all that I have been trying to accomplish within my life, my marriage, my home, my parenting...it is all being done in MY own strength. God is calling me, telling me to become Undone before Him. To let Him do the work in and through me. To rely on HIS strength to accomplish all the great things He has for my life, and to be the Woman of God, the wife, the mother, the friend, the daughter, the teacher that He is calling me to be.

With that, I am becoming Undone before God. I am letting go of the old mindsets that I have been setting for myself. I'm letting go. Just thought you all would like to know! :)

do you know that there's a book called "she's come undone" by wally lamb? want to read it? i have it. you know i love you more than anything and i am so glad you're blogging again. i know you get overwhelmed sometimes, but you are making such a huge difference in peoples lives. a difference that you might not even see for years to come. you have two beautiful daughters that are a testament to yours and joels love, and a blessing from God. you have a son on the way which will be just as much of a blessing as the girls have been. in the time you've been in my life, i have never found a truer friend. keep your head up girlie - i love ya. and as you say to me ALL THE TIME - let go, let God.
