I've decided I need someone else to answer that question for me as I don't know! I'm doing so well, but I'm still not used to life as it is now. So I can get frusterated that I'm not doing "better".
I met with a student today, it's finals weeks so it's our last meeting of the year! We did a little activity where we wrote out all the things that stand out from the year- what The Lord has taught us, verses that have impacted us, words, phrases, ideas, whatever... It's really helpful to summarize and look back on the year. Especially this year!
here are some things on my sheet :
live by faith not by sight 2 Corinthians 5:7
Ask God to show you space for more rest in your life
Adk God to show you what you need to know about yourself
The goal is not to get back to who I was but to be who God wants me to be.
Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way Lord that I may rely on your faithfulness
Psalm 23:3 He guides me in paths of righteousness
Isaiah 40:29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak
Wisdom is not figuring out why
Be kind to your emotions
2 Corinthians 12:9 My grace is sufficient for you for my power is made perfect in WEAKNESS
That verse was the biggdest thing on the page, as I have learned a lot abou that, in fact, I was asked to share my story at a Women's thing at my church this summer, and that is the theme of my talk. So I look forward to sharing more on here someday...
I am incredibly GRATEUL as God has done a huge work in me, in our family, in our home, on this campus. A year ago we still lived in Illinois...What a year it has been.... my brothers graduation, my brothers wedding, a move, our first time training staff, new campus, bought our first house, at a new church, Noah's brother's wedding, Both Noah and my grandma died, I was diagnosed with MS, and the millions of small daily things that make life wonderful and crazy!
:-) I'm more grateful to be a mom than I've ever been. Thank you Lord for your presence each and every moment! Because of THAT I am doing well :)
