As a blogger, I receive emails from readers asking things like:
How do you do it all?
I don’t. Seriously. I wish you could see my to list. Or even just my laundry baskets.
How do you keep your house clean?
That’s funny. It’s a mess most days. Cheerios can almost always be found on the floor. And dusting? That never happens.
How do you find time to cook?
I use the crock-pot more than the oven.
In short, I do NOT have it all together.
I struggle with the same things you do.
There’s never enough time in a day. I could always be a better wife, mother, friend.
I am just an average woman trying to make things work, one day at a time.
Some days go better than others and I complete the to do list, but more often, I fall short.
It’s funny how people’s perceptions are often so different from reality.
Doesn’t it seem like everyone else has it all together?
It’s a lie.
No one does.
Today, prayerfully ask God to show you areas of your life that need more patience, what is worth sacrificing and how you can be happier. Also, ask Him to keep your heart fixed on the truth of His love and to not believe the lie that everyone else’s life is perfect.
I’m praying the same for my life. And the next time someone asks me about how I do it all, I’m going to laugh and say, “come on sister, I’m just like you. We can’t do it all, but we can remember that the Lord loves us and try to be patient with ourselves.”
