Five Minute Friday :: Rise


When I read today's prompt, this scripture came to mind.  I would guess it was because yesterday I was really having a hard time with my calling.  I struggled to see the beauty in my life. Not because I don't enjoy and not because I do not deem it worthy, but simply because I can't believe it is my life. 

It gets really easy to look around and see all the things that other women have going on, and wonder if I should be doing more.  Creating more.  Being more. When the truth is we are all given a calling, a duty, a ...

This morning I rose thinking of the beauty in this thing called my life.  Right now it isn't as difficult.  Meaning my girls are quite a bit sufficient and don't need me as much physically.  I was reminded yesterday by some dear new friends that "Hey, maybe you should store that energy and enjoy the break because you don't know what is around the corner."  I am taking heed to these wise words.

I know that it is not by mistake or coincidence that my life is serving those in my home and I will rise above the doubt with my eyes on Christ.  He knows the plans for my life. Before I went to bed last night, I stumbled across Psalm 16. 

"Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
    even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken."

Isn't He amazing to give me exactly the thing I needed right when I needed it. 

Proverbs reminds me that my life is not my own, and that two little girls are depending me for this season of their life.
