My Mental Eyes Are Bigger Than My Emotional Stomach

I've bitten off more than I can chew--emotionally. Jesus is so gentle, even in that. He reminded me this evening that He will heal me in His timing. He will do the transforming--I just have to be teachable and receptive. He will overcome my struggles for me as I rest in Him.

I don't want anyone to worry about me. I'm okay, really. I think I underestimated the emotional toll that weaning and hormones combined might have on someone with as delicate a constitution as myself (a little Jane Austen for ya).

There are several areas of my life that I suddenly felt I had to repair--parenting, marriage, my own baggage and life patterns. It's just too much all at once.

I am thankful for the grace and peace that comes when I listen to the One whose opinions are just and true and perfectly timed. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness to me.


  1. I think we have some striking similarities. I once had a counselor tell me to try not to "attack the day." It stuck with me because I never felt like that's what I was doing, but when he listened to me, I guess that's what it sounded like I was doing. Macro-managing. It's exhausting. Tell me when you find the magical quick-fix. =)

  2. Wow. I have been feeling the exact same way lately. I have felt like I am doing absolutely everything wrong and have a need to correct it like.....yesterday. Especially in the area of parenting and relationships. Money too. But God is faithful.

  3. you know, now that you mention it i remember my hormones going bonkers when the bambino's stopped nursing. ahh. fun times. or not :).haha
