Overwhelmed

That is how I am feeling this morning and how I felt yesterday.
I have a million and one things on my to do list and when I get this overwhelmed it's hard to figure out where to start.
Yesterday was one of those days where it seemed that I worked all day or was busy all day but got very little done.
We finished homework and I went to start supper....
finding that I had only gotten one can of beans when the
recipe called for two....so we had to go out to eat.
not in the plan....and not really in the budget either....
After we got home from supper,
the girls were asked to clean their rooms
which looked like a tornado had been through.....
......even though they had just cleaned it up on Saturday.
They went up there but did no work...
....so this overwhelmed and tired Mom put everyone
in bed before 7PM.
Why am I so tired?
My son has forgotten what it means to
sleep through the night. He did very well
until about two weeks ago. And since then
he's only slept all night in his bed twice.
I'm grumpy, and tired and have a million and one things to do.
All of those things lend themselves to one grumpy,
short tempered, emotional me.
I am not being a good wife, a good mom
or even a good me
.
Leaves me feeling like I will never measure up
to who God is calling me to be.
As I sit here this morning feeling overwhelmed and
wondering where to start and how I'm going to fit it
all in......and how I can ever measure up,
God reminded me of a snippet of a song I heard yesterday
while driving. It's a song that I love but haven't heard in years.





Thank you Lord, for knowing what I need when I need it.

With these lyrics and this great tune running through my head, I'm off to start my todo list.

Beginning with putting the chicken in the crockpot.

Even though, I'm still feeling way overwhelmed and very much that I will

never measure up, I have HIS strength.

in HIM-

Oh, how I know that feeling...all too well.

Needing the reminder that it's His strength, not mine.

Blessings to you!
