I didn’t really think I would be able to do a blogpost tonight but I guess determination is the key.

Today has been very hectic. Four services. Three kids under five. A baby under one year. A very tired husband. Couples needing ministry. There just didn’t seem any possible way to achieve it today but I just decided there’s no point giving excuses. So I’m sitting here at a very noisy event beside my Pk and I’m trying to gather my thoughts …

Unfortunately everything around me is so noisy I can barely hear myself think. I’m really hoping this post makes sense. If it doesn’t then I promise to make up for it tomorrow. Please bear with me. Tomorrow’s gonna be good.

So maybe I should just move on to what I’m thankful for before the clock strikes twelve. I’m obviously in Cinderella mode at this rate.

So today I’m thankful for a mind that works. I’m thankful for sanity. I’m thankful that my mind works. When I’m faced with a challenge that my mind cooperates with my spirit and produces a result. That i can think my way out of situations. That I can remember things …oh! The things I remember lol! Pk says I never forget anything especially promises *wink wink*

The Lord is my Shepherd … I have everything I need.

Those were King David’s words. It’s a psalm we are all familiar with. We all learnt it as kids. Speaking of which I need to teach my kids o! Hmmm…

So anyhow I noticed that David was actually declaring what God was to him and all the important things that God had done and was doing in his life. There’s a line in that psalm that became a reality in my life at a time when I was going through my wilderness years. Maybe some day I will share with you that one year of my life that almost changed everything. That year and the decisions I made determined my outcome today. That year I was so frustrated and depressed that I was losing my mind but like David the Lord my shepherd takes over and

He restores my mind and my emotions (my soul). If not for that healing process which I never take for granted. I probably would have made a mess of my life. I wouldn’t be healed enough to have recognized my Pk and even if I had. I probably wouldn’t be a support to him because I wouldn’t be healthy in my mind or my emotions.

And the truth is you can’t give what you don’t have

if you feel drawn on every side. Pray this prayer with me.

Say Lord Jesus

Then let Him.

Love you guys

You keep me going.

  1. Funny how God can use our seeming tiredness becos if you hadn’t said it earlier, I would have taken this post as one planned deliberate post.

    Your write-ups have been awesome but this one has hit me directly. As short as it is, it’s probably one post I won’t forget in a long time. And I mean it. God sees my heart. Maybe cos it comes at a time when I need a stop by the brook but somehow av been too involved and busy to just…stop.

    Thank you Maama. This prayer is sleeping with me and going to work with me all through this week…till I know deep down that my soul has received a load of fresh air again…restored and ready to take on more.

    God bless you Ma.
