A Wife Loved Like The Church

The thing is…

Posted on: June 25, 2009

God has a way of making me eat my words.


I feel like it happens all the time. I say one thing, God proves me wrong. Like the idea that just cause I pray for something doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. Yesterday was a doozy of a day. From start to finish I felt like I was getting my butt beat by everything and everyone. Jonathan came home during the afternoon to give me a little break. Before calling him I told myself that I needed the help, but that I was still strong, still under control, I just need a little help. I retreated to our bedroom to delve into the Bible with a hope that God would reveal some wonderful verse about how great I am, how I am special and wonderful in every way. Instead I read:

“If you fail under pressure, your strength is too small.” Proverbs 24:10

Right… Thanks God!

When I told Jonathan of my plight last night, his response was ” You’re way more dramatic then I give you credit for.” Ahh, gotta love honesty. 😉

I figure it’s all good, because really I do still have a lot to learn and God just wants to remind me.

In other news, having two kids is hard work! I could go into all the ways that I’ve discovered just how crazy busy life is with a toddler and a newborn, but frankly my brain isn’t functioning that well these days, so it’ll have to wait for another day and another post.

I called Josh a lot the first few months. Life is hard with a toddler and a baby. I PROMISE it gets better and easier. Seriously. Good luck. 🙂
