I'm Going To Try This Again...

Life is really crazy at my house right now...really crazy.  So crazy that I'm not really enjoying it at all.  I'm trying to figure out how to deal with it because my unhappiness is really affecting the whole family, and that is the last thing that I want.  So I thought that if I keep myself accountable with blog posts then maybe I can kick this!

Here are some of the other things that I'm going to try this week:
1.) I have a new Bible study starting...Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies - I Am by Lysa TerKeurst
2.) Each day I'm going to work at practicing "Love" according to I Corinthians 13.  Today is "Patience."
3.) I'm going to try really, really hard to not put so much pressure on myself.  I look at everything my kids do and every single parenting decision I make as how it will affect them long-term.  This pressure is too great for me to handle!  Sometimes my kids are going to talk back to me, and I can't extrapolate that to mean they will be horrible, bratty teenagers if I don't punish them at that moment for talking back.

So hopefully with all of these things, and a lot of prayer, I can go back to being happy with my life.  I have to trust that God is in control of me and that this trial that I'm going through is teaching me something (or lots of somethings).  We happen to be studying James at church right now, so the timing of all of this just proves that God is taking care of me!
