I’m a mama on a mission...a mission to look AND feel my best! I can’t believe my twins are already 15 months old and I really can’t believe I’m going to be 40 YEARS OLD in just 3 days! WHAT?! Where did the time go?? Well, just because my 3 kids and life are running my into the ground doesn’t mean I can’t still make time for taking care of me! 🤩#cantstopwontstop#twinmom#postpartumjourney#lastweekendofmy30s
I couldn't breath. The noise of toys and screams for this and that in the house was already too much.
So, we went up to the mountains today. The air was clear and my mind began to see through the present fog. My heart began to breath deeply soaking up the renewal creation brings. I didn't realize how much I had been trying to hold everything together lately. How pressured I've felt with the work that God's given me, my roles of wife and mommy, and everything in-between. Like if I let one inch go everything would fall apart.
My family and I stayed below this waterfall for hours as it freely flowed around us. And I felt a free flowing peace wash over me as well. And I remembered these words...
"Be still and know that I am God," and...
"I am the breath of life."
How often do we remember to breath in the stillness of God? How often do we sit back and remember that He is in control? I wonder what this would do to the moment when we are about to lose it, or when we are overwhelmed and exhausted. I bet Jesus would gently tell us, "Be still..." And remind us where our focus needs to be.
Driving down the mountains toward the hustle and bustle of the city, I promised myself I would remember this life means nothing if we're being busy for the sake of being busy. You have choices. You have options. You can decide what is most important and leave out the rest.
I'm making more room in my schedule for Him because He is the fountain of peace my soul is desperate to keep. And already, I can breath once again.
