Clutter annoys me. To keep me from spazzing out (ok not so much craziness but annoyance)
Do you ever feel this way? Do you ever look around and think, "I can't do this...I'm so tired!" If so, you're perfectly normal. No woman or any person at that matter will or can have it together all the time. But that's ok because God does.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened.”
God tells us to look to Him for strength. To give it all to Him. That He is in control.
Sometimes this is hard to do. It's hard to trust that He can take care of us in matters like these...but He can. You just have to pray and ask Him to guide your heart and mind.
After you pray for His help to have to take things one step at a time. Organization and progress will not happen over night.
1. Approach tasks and chores with a joyful heart. "Rejoice in the Lord always..."
2. Try to create a routine. It doesnt' have to be strict but at least a good guideline to help you move along without a lag period. Jot something down on a scrap piece of paper or here are some lists or schedule templates you can print out.
3. Recruit help. Involve your family and things don't have to be so hard on you. That's if you can or have family around. If you have older children, give them a short chore list. They may not do things the way you like, but they're getting it done and learning responsibility at the same time.
4. Don't beat yourself up if bedtime rolls around and your house still feels a mess. It is ok if you don't get things done. This is coming from me personally. And if I can learn to bear with the mess and start on it the next day or day after, you can too.
I know that it might feel like you will never move through past feeling so exhausted, but I promise you will. God will guide you and strengthen you and give you peace of mind but only if you ask Him and allow Him to work in you.
I pray that if you're having a rough time that you'll find peace in the Father.
Faith. Patience. Prayer. It's all Him!
