Be my HELP!

I think this has been the LONGEST unannounced time taken off from blogging and it was totally unintended! How has this much time passed by? Wow!
Well, I've been running, listening to podcasts galore, and struggling in motherhood.

Struggling in motherhood is something I've come to grips with. Really, I shouldn't even call it a struggle in motherhood itself. It's struggling with ME as I do the job I'm in. I'm too easily annoyed with typical kid's stuff. I'm too easily angered at watching their sinful choices. I"m too easily disappointed at their choices. So this leaves me too easily exhausted with nothing left for all the other stuff in life.

Trying to get our house on the market.
Trying to buy a car.
Trying to meal plan and prepare no matter what kind of responses I get from the kids.
Trying to clean the house, stay on top of laundry and paying bills.

As I get annoyed, angry, disappointed and exhausted will you be my HELP? Help me to rise above my circumstances! This is all I have the energy to ask for. Amen

How great His promises are to us that He will be our help in time of need. It is all about trusting Him to do just that!! A great prayer all the time!

Oh girl, I am right there with you. My husband and I had the opportunity to go on a marriage retreat over the 26th of feb. I didn't want to come home. There was no noise, no kids pulling at me for attention, no disciplining because of pushing or hollaring back at one another.
I tell ya, I have been needing to do a focusing prayer many times throughout my day... in order to regain my focus on HIM so I can better parent and love my children.
I too have been so easily annoyed and angered, and disappointed lately. Praying for you from mother to mother.
