Lately I have been struggling with a great deal of things involving work. I won't get into a lot of details, but it has gotten me down. Last week was terrible. But God is good and He has really lifted me this week.
Today I came home and since the hubs has call and won't be home til late, I decided to take a hot bath and have some devotional time. One thing that has been heavy on my heart lately has been school. I still feel at times that I am stuck. Stuck in neutral. I have all these things I WANT to do, but don't actually have the confirmation from God what HE wants me to do. I have big dreams to be an architect, and I pray that the Lord makes it really clear to me if that is the path He wants me to take or not. But its because of the neutral feeling, feeling inadequate in a sense that I feel...blah...
But an amazing thing happened as I was listening to pandora and just being with the Lord...this somg came on. Its called "Beautiful" by Mercy Me. It truly spoke to my heart tonight.
I know as women it is easy for us to feel inadequate when we have so much on our plates. Work, school, a family (and sometimes all three of those things at once) and because we're women and its our nature to nuture I think its easy for us to feel like we are falling short when we don't get all the laundry done before work or if dinner isn't ready by a certain time, or if the kids are a little late for practice, or when our husband wants to love on us and he gets the big ole "Im tired..."
But we are BEAUTIFUL ladies. God thinks that of us. From the tips of our toes to the top of our heads.
In Gods Love,
