Are you enjoying your present stage in life?

Earlier this month, I had the blahs for a few days.  I felt discouraged about the daily demands of caring for young kids.  My 2 year old Lucy has learned how to say NO! with great conviction and she was wearing me down.  Parenting toddlers is not for the faint of heart.

What helped me break out of my funk? 

Confessing my discouragement to my husband.  Oh, it feels so good to talk about the things that weigh on our hearts. 

Listening to Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah Guess what he was talking about?  Slaying the giant of discouragement!

Praising God by singing and reading and thinking about the Bible.  I’m reading in I Samuel right now and David’s life was no picnic either. 

I realized once again that this present stage of life is a tremendous gift.  Although young kids need extra TLC, they are also extra adorable at this age and stage!  (Just look above for proof)

Dwell on God’s lovingkindness in the morning and His faithfulness at night.  And you’ll find the stage you’re in is just right.
