Wow it has been a really long time since I blogged. I have been trying to figure out where God wants me right now. I know that he wants me to be raising my children and loving them and training them up in the way that they should go. I understand all of that but there are other areas of my life that I am trying to be still and listen to what He is calling me to. It is as simple as learning to be quiet and just draw closer to Him. I don't think He is calling me to anything of real significance just calling me. I feel like He is saying," Susan I am right here let me carry you as you walk through the daily trials of life, let me be your friend, your confidant your first Love again.
I have struggled with this baby and breastfeeding. It seems like at least once a month I have a clogged milk duct and it wants to turn into an infection but I get my rest and it goes away. Well today I was doing some research and I found these are mostly caused from lack of rest and stress. As I have had time to think about this I am reminded of what I am working on with my girls right now. we are working on counting everything Joy, James 1:2. So I sat down at my desk today to look at e-mails and saw my big whiteboard that says "Count it all Joy." I had one of those moments where you say," I get it." I will have joy through this and I will learn to rest in the Lord, and let Him carry my burden. I know it seems basic but it is so real He will carry my burdens and I will rest in Him. Through this my stress is taken care of and so is my weariness. He really does provide for all of our needs.
