Day 14: Releasing control in the everyday

Standard

Sometimes I feel like I have to “DO” all the time. You know… have the laundry all done, make sure the kids are doing what they are supposed to be doing, keep up with everything up to the minute. Sometimes I fail to stop and enjoy the little joys that God allows us to experience. I once heard someone say that all joy on earth is simply a glimpse of God. We are allowed to experience joy because God lets us.

So, not every day, but on some days… just let it go:

Forget the laundry …

Take a walk in the rain …

Let your kids make cookies on a Wednesday morning …

Sit and read a good book …

Eat ice cream for no reason …

Spend time with the Lord and let yourself sit… as long as you feel led… just rest in His grace.

He is in control anyway.

This blog is about lessons I am learning on a daily basis. I am a stay at home mom, so most of the lessons I learn from my children. Matthew 21:16 "'Do you hear what these children are saying?' they asked him. 'Yes,' replied Jesus, 'have you never read, '"from the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise'?"" God teaches us things in all different ways... These are my reflections on those lessons.
