We are but a moment in history, but our moment is significant to us and our God. As I am living out my moment, I have realized that life gets messy. Hopes and dreams change and the flow of life changes us. Us… I’m writing this blog, so that you won’t feel alone. There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said. But this is my moment in history, and I’m sharing to encourage others on to good works.
When life gets messy, we are programmed to think that our situation is the worst. No one else struggles with this. My marriage is the worst. My kids are terrible, and why can’t I just be happy? We, humans, look on the outside. We see the well dressed woman with perfect hair and practiced smile. We don’t see her grief at a glance.
Since the struggles in this life are so varied, so will this blog. My biggest struggle right now is grieving the loss of my son, Kai. But I’m still a Pastor’s wife, mom of four, and most of all, I’m a woman. And like many woman, I have past chains that I want to break. Not just for myself but because one moment in history leads to many others. If we can break the chains that bind and hinder us in our moment, it can lead to a thousand other moments that will praise the Lord.
