I can't seem to get out of my rut. I know that my last few posts have been there to help others, I can't say that I am doing it all perfectly either. It's so easy to say that once you have God, things will get easier. Things will, in a sense.
I have to say that lately, I have been down. I am not sure what's going on, but I can't see to "get a grip." I feel as though I go day by day, just trying to make it to bedtime. Of course, I have a lot on my mind: finals, photography (have like a million to schedule!), kiddos, youth, my studies, work, and cleaning this house. How do I climb out? How do you just "wake up" and "get a grip?"
I know one way is to dive into the Word of God. I also love prayer and worship. My mornings are quite rushed. I am exhausted when I go to bed and when I get up. I drop Randy off at daycare, drive to Ruthie's school, drop her off in JUST enough time to fly to work and get there on time. When I am flying to work- that's my worship time. I know a lot of people may think I can't concentrate on God while driving, but I can. In fact, it's like my little bubble. I don't have anyone talking, just a conversation with God. It's so nice. After my prayers, I like to crank up my Chris Tomlin CD. There is no better worship leader than him. When I hear those words and praise Him, I know the Holy Spirit is there with me. It's such a blessing. I haven't been as consistent on my worship in the mornings. I do my prayer, but as soon as I am finished, I let my mind wander to everything else. I am thinking this is a reason I am down.
I wonder....what are some things you do to just lift yourself up out of the rut? Hit me with some ideas!
With that being said, I can't help but post a photo. Here is something that always makes me smile! (Don't know why, but blogger makes my photos look washed out....UGH!)
