This week is my catch-up week! Don’t be surprised if you see two or more posts a day. I really want to get through the whole list of prompts from Five Minute Fridays, so I am going to go back to the ones I missed during my busy week last week!
Today the word is Truth…
Want to know the truth? I am scared, every day. I worry too much and stress myself out. I am in the middle of a yo-yo diet and I don’t exercise as much as I want to. I stay up too late and sleep in in the morning.
The truth? I am having a hard time being the backbone of everything in our house right now. But also, the truth…I wouldn’t stop doing what I am doing for a moment.
My truth, I have to be strong for my family. I need to stay strong in prayer and no matter what keep speaking my faith for my family to hear and learn from. Although I am tired, I still make sure that my kids are taken care of, that everyone has food to eat and clean clothes to wear.
My truth, I do this everyday battle in the name of God. I want to be the wife my husband needs right now, I want to be the mother my children need and I want to be a daughter of God. I do what I do, because I know that God is right here with me and that I can do all things with Him. When the times are tough, I lean on Him, and when they are easy, I praise Him.
The truth I have learned this past year is that God will not leave you. He will walk through the fires with you and be with you the moment you call out to Him. If it were not for this faith that I have, the truth is, I would be lost right now. Instead I am staying strong for my family and helping them through this, that is the truth!
