"Michelle I know exactly how you feel! I know that different seasons require a pulling back in other areas, but I always call those seasons a drawing near. It is in these times that i feel God is drawing me near to Him, and He wants to teach me something. So I usually have to give up the thing I love for a season and find 'myself' in the midst of the chaos through hearing His sweet voice.... at these times it seems that I am not moving forward and feel like my feet are stuck in cement, but when I emerge from these season I run faster than I could pre-season, because of what He has done in me. Be patient my darling, you will emerge with this with a renewed strength and able to write far more effectively than ever!! xx" Captivating FiI have come to a stage in my life where I have cut out everything that isn’t a priority. Everything I do in my life would have a #1 priority listing status. I could never put an assessment due before my children’s schooling. And I could never say that anything is ever more important than finding time for my husband. But cleaning… well the house could do with a little more effort.. but that one does come down the list.
I’ve cut out TV. I’ve cut right back with using social media. I limit my time reading and writing blog posts. I don’t go shopping. I get my groceries delivered. I don’t go out for coffee, or dinner or anything unless it’s planned and has a reason attached to it.
But in 10 years time I won’t be centring every move I make around my children. Right now, I choose to enjoy my children. I choose to love this season I’m in. Which means I get to do some of things I really want to do, but other things have to wait – possibly not 10 years … but at least four months – until I have finished my certificate IV.
