Tonight, I started wondering if some of the things we face in life are similar. You have to admit that life is like
There are times that I have been asked to carry one more thing and I've had to re-prioritize my prior obligations. And there are definitely times that I have had something that I wanted metaphorically trapped and I've needed to figure out how to get it out. However, I think I could definitely be better at remembering to reach out to a loving parent who is always at the ready. Frequently, I go through the frustrated failure stage before it dawns on me, "Hey...pray about it and see." Just this week, it dawned on me to pray about something that I have been striving to intellectually and logically trying to figure out for months. (I still haven't seen the end of this dilemma and have been wasting a lot of time and energy analyzing every single option I can find.) It was even an "instant answer" prayer with the answer of, "It will all work out. Hang in there. I know what is best. Don't worry about it further."
Maybe I need to continue with our obstacle courses and such so that the boys will have a better understanding of how to work through and how they can rely on me to help them if needed.
