I am weak


I love how in a single flash of a camera a moment can stop, a memory is created and for just a second life can look so wonderful..

You can crop it, edit it, Facebook it and type a few beautiful words to describe what that moment meant to you..

Then a few minutes later, while others are commenting nice things about the photo, you step back into your reality.. 

You feel alone, worn out, emotionally drained, weak and wanting some guidance. 

Nobody is perfect..

Picture perfect - maybe..

But not perfect.

Lately I have been struggling.. 

Struggling with a strong spirited three year old..

Every day is so overwhelming when your child has no respect for you and the only authority she takes is that of her fathers.

Life feels meaningless..

I feel like a failure..

I give up..

So, as you sit here tonight, looking at this beautiful photo, please pray for guidance for me.. 

I can no longer do it alone!

Tough kids need tough mums..

and I am weak..

We all are weak - Only Jesus is strong. I will definitely pray for you. Please pray for me as well. We have raised our daughter to think for herself and to value independence. So at almost 6 years old - she is a joy - but she is strong willed and stubborn. She also has the ability to manipulate situations. All these things she got from us and our genes. So it's definitely a struggle with authority issues as well. Especially when she tries to pull Jesus into it and says Jesus says it's okay (lol) Without stifling the Spirit - we have to make sure she understands the rules of our home. Especially since she does have a heart for God. Know that you are not alone and nobody - especially parents are perfect :)

Oh how I relate to this post! I am weak too (hence the name of my blog!!!) and I also have a three year old that is wearing me down right now! Sometimes it seems like these little ones were sent here to destroy our plans, doesn't it!?

In fact, between my 3yr old and 19month old, it's enough to make me not just weak but grumpy, angry, and downright sinful. Oh my it is humbling to apologize to a toddler!

So glad that this whole life, this whole family, is not dependant on how good or holy or calm I am- but on the grace of God!
He who began a good work in us will bring it to completion!!!
