What keeps me going? A J-land friend of mine had compared herself to the pink bunny who kept going and going. I liked that comparison. I am like that as well. I dont know how I do it sometimes. This morning after i had wrote in my journal the first time, I laid down for awhile and I feel asleep. I didnt get up until 12:00 noon. I was so mad aty myself. Right now I am fighting to go back to bed because it is very cool outside. I feel like rolling up in my blankets and sleeping. When I woke back up my hip hurt so bad and froze up. It took me 15 minutes to get out of bed. The dogs were just looking at me like "come on mom we have to go to the bathroom" That was awful. Tht has happened to me before a few times.
What keeps me going? My kids and my pets. I know that no matter how bad my day is or how bad things are in general, they rely on me to keep going. I may not have money and things to give them but I do show them that thier mother isnt a quitter. I may have my days where i lay in bed and cry. I may have my days where i feel like things are hopeless but i pull myself out of it and keep going.
What keeps me going? I know that somehow I have managed to get myself through things that at the time i thought was impossible. This situation will be no different than before. It will only make me stronger. Today I feel strong. Tomrrow I might feel weak. But when push comes to shove, I will make it through.
What keeps me going? Knowing that God is with me through the good and the bad. He will give me strenghth when i need it. He will help me to accomplish what I need to accomplish for my family. I know he will be there with me when I make a good decision or a mistake. He will help me to bring out the best in me in the worst times. I came accross this Bible verses that inspired me to write this. I havent written so clearly in a long time. I read this over and asked myself, "dd i actually write this?" This is the first time i have thought clearly about my life in a long time. I dont know how long it will last but I thank God for the time i have.
Your words are what sustain me. They bring me great joy and are my heart's delight, for I bear your name, O Lord God Almighty.
I will write down these things as a testimony of what the Lord will do. I will entrust it to my disciples, who will pass it down to future generations.
For I have stayed in God's paths; I have followed his ways and not turned aside. I have not departed from his commands but have treasured his word in my heart.
What keeps you going?
