This week has been a balancing act. Completing homework assignments; working part time in retail; making sure that I pick up my younger daughter from school and take her to school; certainly make sure I have babysitting arrangements for the time I have her when I’m at work; accepting a new writing assignment; taking my 18 year-old to work; or, picking up her friend to babysit; getting my 14 year-old to the gym; and, get to sleep in between is a balancing act. Oh, I forgot about dinner, laundry, cleaning…The challenge is interesting, can be taxing, but certainly leaves no room for boredom. My point is that I still want to show gratitude for this life God has blessed me with. God’s blessing of mercy and grace is surely a reason to be grateful. Even when I cannot come up with the answers to the balancing act, God’s mercy seems to emerge larger than life and I find myself thanking Him because He saw my need and worked out the situation. I know that He is opening up doors that no one can close and closing doors no one can re-open. And, I thank God that He is the only one that can do that. God’s true justice and mercy is the source of this life for me. My challenges, trials, successes, and, what might even look like failures are all to His glory. This post is to glorify my Father in Heaven, proclaim Jesus as Lord and be eternally grateful for who He is and what He has done for me. I thank God for this day. “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 NKJV)
One thought on “Balancing Act”
This post makes me revisit my own personal gratefulness for the Lord, in spite of my inquities. Getting in the Lord’s way; trying to “help” him bless me when I’m overwhelmed. Reality check! Grateful for His grace, mercy, protection, affection, strength, comfort, peace…the list goes on.
