{coffee date::finding balance}



 
I'm a....
wife
momma
friend
sister
student
bookkeeper
 
and that's just the short list.
 
i must admit i am struggling to life as a stay-at-home momma. it's been a little over year since i transitioned from working part-time to being a stay-at-home momma. i thought the transition would be easy...i mean how hard could it be??? harder than you think.
 
ever since i became a stay-at-home-momma, the minutes seem to fly by. i thought that being at home would mean that my house would always be clean, the clothes would always be washed, the dishes would be put away...etc, etc. boy was i wrong! instead, my house is more of a mess now then ever before. and the clothes, don't even get me started about the clothes. every day i wonder how the day gets away from me and every day i have no answer.
 
some days i feel like giving up before i even get started. and it's on those days that the Lord speaks to me and pierces my hear. Have I put Him first? Have i asked Him for His help to get through the day? if i answer honestly, then sometimes i would have to say "no".

last week I sharing my frustrations with the Lord...I was pouring my heart out to Him, sharing with my struggles of being a stay-at-home-momma...and just asking Him why things were working out, no matter how hard i tried, i was still stuck in the same rut. the next morning as I was reading my devotional, God just spoke to me--how am i going to find balance if i don't put Him into the equation? sure, i start off my day with prayer, and ask Him to guide me throughout hte day, but am I really asking Him for guidance, or has it just become a ritual? I need to seek Him with my whole heart everday. without Him, there is no balance, with Him there is balance, even during the crazy times.

  2. I too am a stay at home mama -- newly, as my little guy is only 10 weeks old -- and I can totally sympathize with you! Finding balance is so, so hard. My days, just like yours, go by so quickly and at the end I'm looking around and feeling like I got nearly nothing accomplished. Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone!
