Goal 5~ Stop believing the enemies lies;

Standard

and get out there and impact the community!

During this week, (Ok, it has now drawn into: over the last 2 weeks;) I am sharing a few goals (those I found most important) If this is your first time here, you may want to go check out the initial post.

 
Goal One~ is to stop dreaming about being that wife and mother and to start being her. 
 
Goal Two~Host my own blog.
 
Goal Three~ Write my book (really it would be His book)
 
Goal Four~ Work from Home.
 
This goal here, is truly going to be one of those that are easier said than done.
 
but I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.
 
Right? Right!
 
I have a story…boy, do. I.  Have.  A. Story. 
 
A story of Gods redemption.
 
Survival
 
Perseverance 
 
So. Much. To. Share…
 
But I’m scared terrified.
 
How do I share my story?
How do I share about motherhood, marriage and freedom through Jesus…
 
When my life is still such a hot mess? I struggle with this every single day, every single post.
 
Even what I write now, sits in the drafts forever….and  I often have to close my eyes to hit publish.
Although, sitting in front of a keyboard is a tad bit simpler than standing in front of an audience.
 
But God has called me to bigger things, to reach more people.
 
I have spoke a few times, (it’s refreshing) and know I should be doing more, but I’m chicken…(yeah, chicken)
 
Where do you start?
Do you promote yourself?
Is that kind of like “tooting your own horn”?
 
 
I hear the enemies lies: 
What will people think…..?
Your speaking about motherhood? 
You have an 18 yr old in alternative ed.
a 16 yr old with piercings
a 13 yr old with ODD ( and more )
your boys are sometimes mouthy, use poor choice in words, don’t get good grades, and are sometimes just plain lazy.
Your speaking about marriage?
Your husband has really bad ADHD, he is impulsive, has an extremely intense personality, you two agree on very few things.
Your speaking about Jesus?
You too have recently had a loong struggle with depression.
Your not always a good mom, or a good wife.
Your not even always a good christian.
You are a failure….every single day!
 
But every single one of us in this home love Jesus. Some of us pursue him differently than others (and I totally blame myself for that)
 
If I’m sharing a story, I want to be taking seriously, I want to be heard….for His Glory!
 
But if I wait until my family is perfect….
 
I will be forever mute!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I don’t want to be mute. I want to glorify God. Do as I am called to do.
 
Impact my community. and others.
 
I. want. to. be. heard!

  1. Maybe being able to admit you are a failure is what will make your story powerful. The people who have always had it all together are far less compelling than the imperfect and honest ones.

  2. The fact that even through all the imperfection you remain not only a family but a loving and honest family that loves the Lord and remembers to give Him honor each day and thank Him each night. You would not be tooting your own horn, you would be sounding God’s trumpets telling how He picked you up and brought you out and then blessed you with such a family and wonderful husband. Never forget that.
