Back to the middle

I have been feeling a little off balance in recent times. Well mostly since having Kyle. My labor wasn't glorious and easy and the period before and after were both a struggle and still is some days. I want to be able to go to church and worship like I used to but it is kind of difficult to do that with my irregular work schedule, Kyle's appointments and everything in between. There are some days when all I want to do is just be able to get 6 hours straight of sleep but I can't.

Don't get me wrong, motherhood is an amazing thing. I can't tell you enough how rewarding it is. I think in Ghana there is always so much help you receive from family and that makes it a lot easier. You know that moment in time when you question where you are and why you're there? I am there.

I have been a little teary today and it probably is hormonal but I just can't seem to shake it. I need to be centered again. Any mamas out there have tips on how to keep the balance? How do y'all keep it all together and remain fabulous? hehe

Well all I can say is God is your strength. I do not know what to say that might help but may God be with you. All is and will be well with you and Kyle.

Simply say "Holy Spirit I am feling down, I am feeling tired" weary or whatever the case might be " so please take over" Trust me, it works like a charm. I have felt like that many times with work, little one, hubby and all that but everytime I call on my Sweet Holy Spirit He answers. Just imagine He says he is always there and waiting on us to ask for His help. Whenever I start feeling this way I realise I am trying to achieve based on my own strength so I need the GREAT I AM to take over :) Hope this helps!

Thanks anonymous- This morning I got back from work and before I got into the shower- I took a look in the mirror and looked at the worry lines then I said to myself, "your God is in control so why are you fretting". It did put a smile on my face. Thanks!
