Life is hard. Motherhood is hard. Change is hard. 2020 is HARD.
But don't lose heart, don't lose focus, and don't give up just because things are hard. Please don't read this thinking that I always have the right mindset. I'm writing this to myself first and foremost.
This year has been especially taxing on people's mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. It's easy to get complacent and take our eyes off the Lord. We give excuses for not being the Church, for not taking our kids to church, for not living in community, for not loving our neighbor. But don't...
I hope it speaks to you. Whatever struggle you are facing; a medical diagnosis, a troubled marriage, division in your family, financial unrest, or anything that is weighing on your mind, God is right there with you. He is going through the trenches with you and no matter what the outcome, know that he WILL use this for his glory!
…& if not...He is STILL good!
