So here I am again, stuck!

{Heavy sigh} I’m feeling stuck in a rut, going through the days like a version of the movie GroundHog Day. 

Wake up, get kids ready for the day, cook meals for the day, teach them, break up the pushing and tugging of each other, put down for nap, wake up again, eat dinner, run and play and place in bed for the night. At this time, I’m the most ambitious because I have a million things I want to get to while my little ones are asleep. But two things happen: either I fall asleep with them trying to ease them into sleep or I don’t accomplish much of anything because I feel overwhelmed with the endless chorus and projects I feel like I need to finish all in one night.  (not including the occasional unplanned interruptions and messy accidents) Close to impossible!

Here comes the stress pangs, the migraine, the weakness in my left arm ( I’ll save this bit for another post).

The cares and responsibilities of life are starting to weigh me down, I’ve been here plenty of times before. Matter-of-fact, the last time I felt like this was exactly one year ago, July 2017. I got a boost out of my rut by the grace and mercy of my heavenly Father, Yahweh. Through the Lord Yeshua, I had the opportunity to go to Chennai, India on a trip to soak in the presence of the Lord with other believers. My life has greatly benefited from the trip and meeting new international brothers and sisters around the world who are in the Lord and who where just as passionate as I am for Lord Jesus. This year, July 2018, I have no plans for international travels to India for spiritual revitalization (not that I could afford it anyway), so back to the basics, I go.

It not a mystery what I need to do, it’s not complicated but like they say, “Easier said than done”

  1. Meditate on the Word of God daily.                                                                                                                                                                   {Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.} 
  2. Spending quiet time before the Lord Yahweh.                                                                                                                                                    {Psalms 46:10 “…”Be still, and know that I am God…}                                                                                                                                                       
  3. Pour all my burdens at Jesus feet.                                                                                                                                                                         {1Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”}

I plan to become more strict with my time and what  I put my attention to. Too much on one’s plate can discourage one from finishing their course, literally and figuratively.

At least I’ve completed one major task on my to-do List; write a blog post about my feelings.

Done. 🙂

How do you get yourself out of a rut? Are you currently in one right now like I am?
