Pep talking myself today with this one... It’s OKAY to not be OKAY!
I’m the kind of person who likes to have all of my ducks in a row.
I like to feel powerful. On top of things. In control.
I don’t like feeling fragile or easily set off by things that don’t go how I planned.
I don’t like crying. I don’t like feeling scattered and overwhelmed.
But ya know what? It happens to SO many of us!!
You aren’t alone in what you’re going through.
It IS a lot.
It would be CRAZY and totally unrealistic for you to be able to just perfectly handle all that you’re juggling.
It takes TIME and many MESSY days and weeks to create a routine that is life giving and smooth.
And when you finally figure out that routine, you’ll get to redo it again because things CHANGE.
You are not defined by your moments of stress and overwhelm.
You are defined by the love of the One who made you. PERIOD.
You’re on a JOURNEY, as in, you have NOT arrived.
Take it one step at a time.
RECEIVE GRACE & accept the SUPPORT from those who love and care for you.
Take time for yourself. Say no. Create boundaries.
And IMMERSE yourself in what’s TRUE about who you are in Christ and what it means to call Him Lord.
With Him and the community you have in Him, you can do this!!
