When Just Enough Hell Breaks Loose

Yesterday was one of those days when just enough hell broke loose to make me doubt just about everything I was doing. 

No need for details.  We home educate two teen boys....enough said?

After a hard day of trying to press through, I finally had time to do my Bible reading.  I know.  It's supposed to be the first thing you do...but it didn't happen.  And even if it had, I'm not sure I would have heard the same message that I heard later in the day. 

Ps. 94:18-19

I cried out, "I am slipping!"
  but your unfailing love, O Lord , supported me.
 When doubts filled my mind,
  your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.


 

My doubts didn't go away, and my feelings didn't exactly change, but I'm hanging on to His Truth....His unfailing Love will support me.  I can have renewed hope and cheer, because

 

HE IS IN CONTROL

Let the 5 kids before them be evidence enough that you're doing a good job.

Wow. Thanks so much for posting this, Robin.
Lately, I've felt like I've been 'slipping' in the weight loss area.
Now I know what, I mean, WHO, I need to focus on.

I'm with Anna. Did you happen to notice those other Meadows you put out into the world? They are kind of a big deal.;) The doubts are lies. Choose not to hear them.

Thank you for telling us that even Robin Meadows has doubts.

Well, don't you think it is interesting that just 2 days after you posted the blog about putting your family first that you were blind-sided? You are a great mother, friend, mentor, example. There is no doubt about that. You just caught a firey dart from the enemy. Your feet are firmly set on your Lord Jesus Christ. We are simply dust and earthen vessels. The treasure you hold in your earthen vessel is beautiful to behold. It is the cracks and flaws we have that allow His beauty and light to shine through. I know you know all of this already. I just wanted to say it to you. You are an awesome woman of God. My heart sees Christ in your heart and I find encouragement in the path you have walked. You WILL reap if you faint not. The pain of childbirth continues in our hearts until...I am not sure if it ever stops. Like Jesus' mother, a sword pierces our heart. But still we hold it out there for as long as it takes. Keep up the good work, Robin. You are awesome.
Your forever friend,
Belinda

Agree with Cindy. Great verse. And, sometimes, we forget who GOD says we are.

"The greater One Jesus resides in us and He will reign as King over those who choose to make Him Lord and Savior. "

And that is what makes Him be in control...when we allow Him to be.

Thanks for the comment. manymeadows.com
