Several weeks ago I scheduled an overnight productivity getaway to get caught up and get ahead for the projects we have in the works. I’d been looking forward to this for a while—how awesome it would be to have that uninterrupted time.
Well this morning came, I drove 20 min north to the hotel I booked, and I cried most the way. The further I got from my kids and husband, the more my heart ached for them.
What??!! Where did that come from?! I adore the work I get to do everyday, why all the sudden was I flooded with feelings of neglect and selfishness?!
Sitting in the parking lot now, these are the thoughts that came to my mind...
Woven in the fiber of every mother and woman, is a desire to love and nurture those closest to her.
And when something else comes before that desire, we might feel this unexpected flood of emotions—maybe more than once, maybe every morning.
But friends, DO NOT let Satan mislabel these feelings as “neglect” and “selfishness”. 🙅🏼♀️For me, that’s where the downward spiral begins.
REMEMBER the small daily efforts you are making to align your will with God’s. When you do so, those labels have no place or power. Only YOU know the path He has laid before you. No one else can tell you what that should look like. Trust your momma heart. ♥️ Trust that you’re exactly where you need to be. Or if you feel a shift needs to happen, that “divine discontent”, trust that God will go before you and prepare the way. He has a great work for your to do—and sometimes in more places than one.
