To whom much is given, much is required.
Please forgive my absence....my plate is so full and for that, I am so grateful, I am just trying to find my balance between being a mother, working a full-time job, writing these books, trying to get my hot girl summer body together, blogging, branding, church duties and above all I am trying to stay spiritually sane.
The other day, I put a post up on Facebook about me getting ready to send my second book to the editor and I said, "I prayed for days like this." And I did, I just didn't see them happening so soon. There were so many times that I wanted to give up but God allowed me to keep going.
With all of the things going good in my life, I am honestly still dealing with things that are causing me to doubt myself but I was made for this. I was built for this, and i will survive.
That is what I have to tell myself daily, and I think that that is something that we all should adopt, especially in the times were we are overwhelmed and mentally and physically tired. Even if it isn't that particular saying, choose to speak daily positivity and affirmations to yourself daily and even hourly, if you need to. Remember that God will never allow us to go through anything that He has not prepared us for. Even if we feel weak while we are going through, the weakness that we are experiencing is creating the opportunity to experience God's strength and love.
Luke 12:48 New Living Translation (NLT)
48 But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.
