Life Busy?

Is your life busy?  September & October are notoriously busy for us. Never fails, every year we have a full calendar on those 2 months. Field trips, apple orchard, pumpkin patch, driving to look at fall leaves changing, Civil War Re-enactments, camp fire school and much more!

I've had a week that feels like it's spinning out of control, lots to do, a full calendar and 4 deaths in a row. One was a TOS Review Crew wife and homeschooling mother of 2 small children. That is all enough to knock you for a loop for sure. But we have to sit back and remember that God is in control, He is still on the throne, even though we may allow ourselves to feel like life is spinning out of control.

At times like this I look to one of my favorite books of the Bible: Philippians. In chapter 4 verse 13, it read "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." That should do it for me, but sometimes I need a bit more encouragement, so I head over to the book of Hebrews chapter 13 verse 6. "So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me."

I think that sometimes that man that the verse is talking about is that man (woman) that planned my calendar page! I need the Lord to protect me from myself and my ease of becoming too busy!

I am a sinner (yes being too busy can be a sin), I am a work in progress and have lots of irons in the fire, as well as being a wife and mother of a homeschooler. As I feel my world spinning, (well it's starting to slow down as I move my eyes back to Jesus and off the calendar) I think of 1 John 5:14 & 15 "and this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, he heareth us: And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him."

So what to make of this blog post? Life Busy? Talk to the Lord MORE!
