Mixed Signals.

"A seed of worry can build a mountain, just as a seed of faith can move a mountain."

I sent this quote to my Husband a few weeks ago while at work during a time that I thought that he needed it. I never really thought that I would use this quote so often through out my days. I have sense added it to a post it note on my work computer as well as quoted it on Facebook. There is so much to be said in this quote and especially with the fact that it is really "hitting home" with me this week.

I have had a week of what one would call mixed signals from God. I sometimes get so confused whenever I pray over an issue for so long, feel that he has given me that answer that I need then in two seconds that answer is changed into something else, then changes back the next day. This is something that I have always found hard to adapt to in my faith. I wish it was easier and God trust me enough to just plainly give me the answer out in open, then guide me throughout. But he loves enough to make our own decisions - which is so hard for us sometimes when you want the perfect answer.

I have worried over a topic and cried this week over the excitement and the fear of change that it is going to bring our family. No I am not pregnant. Then as I sat at work today I read over this quote once again and it finally hit me that no matter what decision I make the Lord will stand by our family and guide us throughout. Although, he may stand distance he will be there to pick us up if we fall. It is always hard for us to remember this no matter how strong we are as christians but we should use our faith to guide us no matter how gambling the issue may be.

Amen! I (well, I should say "we") have struggled with the same thing. I am preggo again and trying to figure out what the Lord would have us do, what path we should take as a family is difficult. Plus, people asking constantly if I'm going to stay home or work since I'll have three children doesn't make it any easier.

We just have to know he will be there to pick us up, like you said. I'll be thinking about you as you make whatever decision you're going through!

I love this quote! I am going to borrow it :)
You have no idea how much I needed to read that this morning! Thank you for sharing!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
