Today, and recently, actually my entire life, I’ve struggled with faith. I went to church this morning after an epic freak-out in reaction to my 9-year-old’s attitude & my own week with almost no sleep.
The service at Riverview this morning was perfect, the message what I needed. My eyes were opened today to the fact that while I love God & pray, while I am so thankful for salvation, I’ve put my children ahead of Him in my life, I’ve made them idols. My life is inappropriately centered and so now, I pray for guidance, for the patience and the courage to change this.
I will not love my children any less by loving the One True God more & in fact in living as He wishes me to live, I know I will love everyone more and better. I know this will not be easy, but through Christ all things are possible.
