What to do when you don’t have “a village.”

I could feel the overwhelm this evening when dinner time came around after a full day of trying to get some things done with two toddlers. 😅😅

Mom life, it’s the wrestle between knowing I want to spend every moment home with them making it productive, teaching them “all the things,” and snuggling them.
(I know they won’t stay little for long.)

Yet, during the day it’s just me.
So the laundry, dishes and some cleaning are essential to helping our family life run smoothly. You feel me Mamas? 😉👊🏼

It isn’t first but it is needed.
Moms, we can carry a heavy load if we aren’t careful.
We are not meant to carry allllll of this!!!
It truly does take a village and sometimes we just have to ask for help.
I’ve seen more than ever the more I grow as a Mom just how broken our world is. We’re all kind of selfish, am I right? 😬

But what do you do when you’re in a season where you don’t have a village?

YOU SEEK JESUS ALL THE MORE!

When the dishes and laundry are piled high. When boo boos need kissing. Sippys need a refill. Your mind and body need care. Not to mention how bad you want a date night.

(This post is not a “I need… I need!” This is not asking for help because I praise God my sister is coming tomorrow 🙌🏼🙌🏼 stick with me here…. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼)

HE CARES ABOUT IT ALL. And He IS carrying you through EVERY season…
EVERY trial!
EVERY sickness.
AND EVERY victory!
He is there!

When I wanted to die as a teenager, KNOWING just how much Jesus loves me saved my life!
When I was in the deep darkness of postpartum depression, once again He saved my life and healed deep wounds in my soul. He brought me out of the sadness I felt daily and led me into a life of joy!

Yet, He’s still working on me.

That means I have to be purposeful. I don’t have to run ragged knowing that I’ll snap at my hubby or kids.
I can CHOOSE to go drink my tea and go to a quiet place to be with Jesus!

The posts you see ARE NOT perfection…. these are choices to choose a smile in the mess. ‘Cause my life is messy too.😉

He is where I find my Peace..

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:3‬ ‭

He is where I find my Joy.

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭16:11‬ ‭

He is the Living Water.

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’””
‭‭John‬ ‭7:38‬ ‭

And He can rescue YOU TOO!

“He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭40:2‬ ‭
