Snaps of My Home

My home while I rest through the lens of my iPhone ...

But those who hope in the Lord

    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Hope you're having a beautiful week.

Heavy Bag

Today as I sit here wanting to write a post for this blog as it's been a while, I draw blank. I realize that I'm just so tired. Lately I've been carrying a heavy bag of stones on my shoulders, or so it seems. In my mind there are little thoughts that whisper saying, "You've let them down you know", "You're not strong enough to start that again", "This load will always be there to slow you down". I sigh. I'm exhausted, but from what exactly? I'm feeling guilty as a wife and a mother, feeling inadequate in myself, yet without really pin-pointing why. 

I know that it's something women experience quite regularly. But, don't you just get so sick of it? Yet, in all this, I know that I need to remind myself of the unchanging truth that His Word says to me. I know I need to speak it out, claim it and believe ... even when the shadows still linger. Those shadows are tiring aren't they? There just 'there' waiting to drag us down. In all this, I know my God, I know He is faithful in my life, and in yours too. I know that there would be other women reading this blog right now, who need this reminder too. 

He is good, He is faithful, He is always with us, He loves us, He watches over us, He releases us, He forgives us, He gives us more grace.

Resting in Him this week xo

Linking up with 'Strangers and Pilgrims on Earth'  , 'A Wise Woman Builds Her Home' and 'Raising Homemakers' ... three wonderful and beautiful blogs!
