Hello world!

I am new to this whole “blogosphere” thing, so hopefully this works.

I have wanted to blog for awhile now, but have never seemed to find the time to do it.  What got me to do it today?  I was asked by Dar.  So now I find another good reason to start writing, reading and responding.  Time is somewhat of an issue with me right now.  I am trying to juggle two ministries and a job.  I have never been in a situation like this before and I am finding myself drained yet excited.  For the past few months I have been trying to get used to getting up at 5am/4am and be a somewhat productive person throughout the day into ministry activities at night.  I find that I am still a zombie by 10pm, but doing better…I no longer need an afternoon nap.

While reading Mobilized Weakness by Mark Bair, the realization that I am on the edge of being burnt out smacked me in the face.  I brought this realization up in cell group.  Before I read that, I guess I hadn’t really thought about it, I would just get really stressed, deal with it and get over it.  No conclusions were ever made.  But after reading that, I saw the trap that Satan was setting up for me.  He wanted to see is I was going to rely on God and prioritze, or rely on myself and cave in.  This is when I decided to take action and get into prayer more often about this.  I am still in the process of prayer and adjustment.  Most of the time I am happy and convicted but there are still moments (especially during WORD or in LTC) when things seem so chaotic and like my brain is going to explode from stress.

I know that there are a lot of people out there that are just as busy if not more than I (being at home only one night a week, maybe two if REALLY lucky).  It can seem like you can get nothing done and that you only have the capacity to do things at 56%.  It has been really hard to juggle discipleship inductives, cell group readings/studyings, LTC homework and studying, and now adding WORD cell group teachings.  Trying to squeeze all this into one night a week and maybe a few spread out hours throughout the week.  Anyone in this position: insight would  greatly be appreciated.

  1. Very coolistic site, WonderWife! You tell your husband he’d better start loving you like you deserve! Then you’ll be happier!

    On the other hand, you’re doing a terrific job, and there does seem to be some spring in your step! I believe the Lord’s stretching your faith, it’s clear!
