I am empowered, well I was, at least I thought I was many years ago. After spending a little bit of time looking through some old journals and re-living some of the memories I came across the following words –
“You think you are small and insignificant, but I see you and that is all that matters, for I created you and have not forgotten you. You are my daughter, a daughter of the King, a daughter of the creator. You will live a blessed life, but not a life without pain and sorrow”.
That feels like a lifetime ago, well actually it was three lifetimes ago. Since then I have had three adorable little ones, our lives have had some pretty big ups and downs. But I still cling to the promises that I am a child of God, a child of the creator, a child of my Heavenly Father.
In this last six or so years as that’s how long ago I wrote that, and that is just a little snippet of what I call my page of “wow” as it is not something I would have come up with on my own as it addresses most of my fears and puts them out there for all to see. Well really just for me to see at the moment but I keep coming back to those few words over and over again. I know someday those words will change my life in a big way, but for now I keep them close to my heart.
Often times in the day to day living we can get so caught up in thinking that what we are doing is small and insignificant, for me at the moment my days are filled with school runs, another load of washing or five, preparing endless meals for my little ones, trying to get at least one of them to have nap time and then there is homework and more housework. I truly love this season as overwhelming as it can be at times I know with my husband by my side we are raising three little people to be the next generation! It is often on these days where the day seems to have escaped me before I have had a chance to do much else that I feel so small and insignificant, like my dreams will never come to being, that I will never have time to do it all. It is these days that I take comfort in knowing that the Holy Spirit is in control and He knows my days before I do and has it all mapped out, as long as I remain steadfast in him He will guide my path.
