A little while back I dived into Psalms and started to look at the character of God. Do you ever ask yourself who is God? I wanted to share this deep dive with you. I was overwhelmed by what scriptures tell us about God, His character and who He is to us. I hope you are as blessed as I was when I saw the depth of God’s love and provision for us!
Single Mom Burnout is serious! If you’re a single mom you know that burnout can take you out! It’s important that we reserve our energy for our sanity and the welfare of everyone around us. A burned out mom can be a scary sight! We take home the bacon, fry it up in the pan, and sometimes we forget we are a woman… not a robot programmed or capable to do a million things at once. We experience burnout when we say yes to everything. Listen, I like to please, but when I say yes, without evaluating if I have the time, money, or energy it never ends well. Well, it may go great for the people I said yes to, but I feel depleted and a little resentful if I’m being honest. This attitude defeats the whole purpose of saying yes!
Scripture tells us to let our yes mean yes and our no mean no. No is not a bad word. Saying no doesn’t indicate that you’re mean, standoffish, or selfish! Saying no means that you know when to cry uncle! You know when enough is enough and too much is too much. Saying no means you care about your wellbeing and acknowledge your limits. Saying no means you take your commitments seriously and don’t just commit without thinking it through. You give yourself peace and honor those around you when you are honest about your yes and your no’s. So, my friend stand firm and kind in your no it really is okay.
I’m excited to be launching an e-Book with my 15 Tips on Avoiding Single Mom Burnout! I’ll be giving you practical tips, prayers, and scriptures to help you avoid burning out so that you can shine your brightest as a woman of God!
Are you tired of getting the same results? Bored with the same routines and habits that leave you feeling depleted? Are you ready to not just have potential, but to actually live on purpose? Then it may be time look at life through a different lens. Changing our life sometimes requires us to change the lens we are looking though? Maybe you need a wider lens, one that allows you to see beyond what is in front of you. How is your spiritual lens? Do you see the bigger plan that God has in store for you? Or is your current lens blocking the full scope of His will for your life?
A new year around the corner and many of us will make resolutions and break them within the month. Why? We are creatures of habit, routines, and not necessarily ones that push us forward, but the ones that keep you comfortable, complacent and stuck! When you reflect on 2018, do you feel that you lived your best life? Did you step outside the box? Did you dare to do different or better? Do you actually see how important you are to the kingdom of God and are you contributing your spiritual gifts to build it up? God has an amazing picture for your life but, you have to look through the correct lens to bring it to fruition! If your vision is limited your life will be limited. Decide this year, this moment to get a long wide lens that will allow you to see beyond even your expectations, and see the bigger picture, the bigger you that is fully equipped to live a life that reflects the handiwork of your Father! Change your lens and you will change your life!
