Stay At Home- this is my Post

Last night in our small group we talked about being a "warrior chick" from our Holly Wagner book. One thing that she stresses in this chapter is the concept of staying at the posts God has put us at. Being faithful with and for what He has given us.

I think this really spoke to how I have been struggling this week. On Monday I got all dressed up for an appointment in Clevelend. It felt good to go into an office, talk with a professional and have my mind stimulated.

The rest of the week I was really cranky and I think it is because I was fighting with God over the post He has me at right now. I am pretty confident that due to my human nature I would want to be home if I was working...but I was complaining about being home all week with O. I sounds horrible. But I have to be honest.

After being honest with myself, I realized that I MUST seize this opportunity, this post that I am at right now and not only faithfully fulfill this role but enjoy every minute I have with my little daughter. I will probably have the rest of my life to work...but only this week to enjoy a three month old named Olivia.

and so true! He will use you mightily. Parenthood, raising God's little one's is so important. The MOST important, some would argue. And if we fail at raising them in the Lord, what else matters? Enjoy and blossom in this season where you have been planted. You have been so blessed.
