Just enough light for the step I'm on

Being a mom of 3 under two is not easy most of the time. Yes, I have grown used to it mostly, but it still is very challenging. At times I still wonder why God chose me, now, for this. But I know that it is for His own glory and that He will be faithful to continue to give me all that I need to complete this task.

Sometimes I want to see the big picture. To just step back and see everything through God's eyes. But mostly, I am glad that I can't see it all. Because if I could, I might not want to keep on walking. Here, where I am, God has given me just enough light for the step I'm on. I will continue to trust Him to light the next step as I continue to climb in obedience and with joy.

I also get frustrated often as I think of all the things that I can't do right now. Things like being more involved in church and ministry. Things like having more time to devote to supplementing my husband's income. And I want to be able to go places without help. (I don't even attempt grocery shopping with the girls alone.) All these things I know are good things...but being here at home with my girls, training them, cooking for my husband and children...that is good too. In fact, because God has me here, now, this is the better thing.

So I will purpose again to enjoy this season and to look for what God wants for me to learn and do while I'm here.

What a beautiful post! I'll be having my third under 2.5 any day now, so I'm sure that I can glean some wisdom from you!

You are an amazing, bright, smart, beautiful, etc... daughter. You are doing what God wants you to do right now and we love you for that.

Love Nana :)

Sarah I love getting to see your heart and hear what you are learning in this season. I am so proud of the mother and wife that you are to you girls and Matt.

I am reminded that "God does not call the qualified, but qualifies the called".

You have been called to the glorious and noble role of mothering and being a wife and I know that God is glorified through what you do each day for Him and you family.

Love you sis,
