Keep going~

My closest friends know my struggles.  I'm not living the life that I dreamed, or imagined.  I know that I am in the hands of my God, I am living His plans, and know they are better than any I had . 

It doesn't mean that being a single parent of 4 boys (mostly without support from parent #2), going to bed alone every night, managing the household, finances, schedules, and day to day tasks don't get to me... stress me out... get me down...

So if you see a sad post, wonder about me, think I'm a downer, share too much... it's just life.  We all have struggles... some of us share them.  I'm real.  I hurt.

Some people cannot relate to my struggles, yet sadly, some can.  I hope that my posts are able to minister to at least one of them... ♡

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God" (2 Corinthians 1: 3-4).

Are you F.A.T. ? Faithful, Available, and Teachable.

Faithful to the ministry that you are part of.  Not only when it is good for you, but wherever you're needed at the time.

Available to serve the on the team, ministry, or organization that you call yourself a part of.  Doing what is required/requested.  Again, not just when it is good for you, but whenever you are needed for the good of the team.

Teachable... Humbling yourself to the authority of another. Doing what is asked without question, or obstinance.

I aspire to be all of this and more. Lots of work to do. Pressing on.
