Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

The kids are still napping so maybe I can sneak in another Psalm. Lord let them sleep a little longer so that I may hear what you are saying to me!

Scrpture

Psalm 13 blueletterbible.org
A Prayer of Self-doubt

Observation

Ouch! Verse 2 says what I have been feeling for weeks! How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day?

If you have read my other posts from today you know that I have used the analogy that I feel like I have been drowning. The sorrow and sadness I have felt are because I have been struggling with simply keeping up every day. I have said to myself more than once - I am a terrible homemaker when I can't even make our home comfortable.

This short little Psalm has taken a terrible weight off of my shoulders. It is not my weaknesses that have been making me "drown", it is simply the enemy trying to defeat me! The Lord is allowing the enemy to do this so that I may learn from this. I needed a lesson in trusting the Lord. I needed a lesson in leaning on God and His Word no matter what else is going on in my life.

Application

Getting into the Word every day and doing deeper Bible study rather than just reading is so essential for me to be able to keep my focus on the Lord. I absolutely must work at doing this every single day.

Prayer

Oh Lord you are so wonderful in the ways that you work through us. I am simply amazed with what I have learned today just through two little tiny Psalms. Thank you for opening my heart to hear you speaking to me. And thank you for giving me these few minutes to study this Psalm.

My children literally woke up as I typed the last sentance of the prayer!!! God is good!
