Because You have given me TWO of Your greatest blessings, I seek you more than ever. Yet I fail forward on a daily basis. I yearn for those quiet calm moments I’ve known before where I could fully release myself to You without interruptions and distractions. Yet somehow I have found a way to become hindered, guarded in my time with You as there is always another needing my time, energy, abilities or my mind is wrapped up in the chaos that I’ve created in my head. The knots are tight and unwilling to give way in order to release clarity of thought to give you more. More than the small, thin and fragile crevices of moments I offer. Frustrated that the shouts of the world drive me away from deliberately settling into the quiet whispers of Your voice.
Failing forward with the tenderness of knowing you cover me in this time. Your grace. Your strength. Your compassion. Motherhood is never ending, but may I fully embrace the shift of seasons it produces that aligns my heart closer to yours!
