Ok ladies, allow me to be vulnerable here. This summer has been tough! Can you sympathize? With the warm weather, a funk has come. Not one that I can pinpoint the cause and fix, but a funk that makes it hard to get motivated. This funk has lasted longer than it usually does, and has started to affect more than just me.
I am lonely, but feel unable to connect. I am frumpy, but unsure how to fix it. I am frazzled, but cannot seem to compose myself. Why does this happen over the summer? Or does it have nothing to do with the season of the year, and has to do with the season of life that I am in? I am in a tough season. I have 3 little kids (under the age of 5), so I am busy. Even when I have nothing going on, I have 30 things that need to get done. I am a stay at home mom, but I am a full-time student, a wife, a home business owner, and I have various commitments throughout different areas of my life.
So what am I suppose to learn during this season of life? I think God is trying to tell me to lean into Him. When the things of this world disappoint, He will not leave us. Psalm 46:10 says “Be still and know that I am God.” In the midst of the chaos, we are called to be still. Too often I forget this. So My challenge for the month of September, I am going to be more deliberate about my quiet time. I will set aside time to be still and spend more time deepening my relationship with the Lord. It is not about me and my funk, it is about Him. It is always about Him, and maybe that is the lesson that I am suppose to learn!
