What I realize about the people around us all is that it seems as though, for the most part, we all act like we have things figured out. At the very least, we don’t want to let anyone know when we’re confused or uninformed about certain things. I know I’m very guilty of assuming that my good friend has his parenting strategy all worked out in advance and I’m not as put together because Hannah and I are just taking things one day at a time. Granted, Judah, our almost 2 1/2 year old son, is doing a pretty solid job all around. He’s definitely debunking all the horror stories I’ve heard about how parenting is really difficult and exhausting.
Don’t get me wrong, because we definitely have difficult and exhausting days, but I interpret those horror stories as life as a whole will be difficult, ya know?
But this is how most of us feel, right? It seems like those around us have the things that we’re struggling with all figured out and it makes us feel like we’re inadequate or just simply behind.
What happens when everything in life that is weighing us down becomes bigger than what God is calling us to?
What happens when the things that we are called by God to do in this life become bigger than our worries and struggles?
I’m talking about, if we can truly fight to keep the things of God at the forefront of our minds, and do it in community together with one another, we can transform our story in such a powerful way.
I know most of you that read this blog or listen to my podcast personally, and I’m so thankful for everyone that supports this content. Part of the vision I’ve had for this site is to create a place where people can talk about what we’re talking about and build a sense of camaraderie.
There’s so much about life that we’re all trying to “figure out” or “get through” or “learn about” and we don’t have to do it alone. You’d be surprised (I’m talking from personal experience) when you talk to someone new, you never know what hangs in the balance of that conversation.
Let’s start talking!
