I'm having one of those sweet "God moments," when the Lord whispers gently to my weary heart and fills me with the utmost peace and joy.
It's quite a change and a challenge to transition from the long term routine of being just husband and wife (which was quite comfortable for us) to being hubby and wife with a little baby. It can be a challenge to budget our finances for daycare fees and baby expenses; a challenge to find time to be a good wife when I am maxed out every day by working and taking care of my precious little one; a challenge to get anything accomplished in my day other than the basics; but more importantly, it is a challenge to make time for the Lord in my new super busy daily routine. It never ceases to amaze me that whenever I DO make time for the Lord, I find my spirits lifted, my strength restored, my heart healed and my focus back where it needs to be, on Christ. HE sustains me!
I love this verse: Isaiah 40:3 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
When I seek the Lord, He gives me strength to face what feels like an insurmountable day, He gives me the wisdom to handle our finances to the best of my ability, He teaches me how to be a better wife amidst these new circumstances, He shows me how to find balance even in a difficult routine and He gives me joy that surpasses all else!
I have asked so many mamas how they manage to get so much done in a day (most of them have several children compared to my one:) and they all seem to say, "I don't know how I do it, I just know that the Lord gives me the strength for every day!" Amen to that:)
