One thing that I have come to understand as a Christian is that it is very easy to stray away from being close to God. When I start to feel like this I try to pray and ask God to rejuvenate me in His spirit.
I think sometimes we get stuck in the Day to Day monotonous routine that sometimes we forget to think about God. We have a hard time staying present in His love. We pack full our schedules with so much stuff! Sometimes it feels like there’s just not enough hours in a day to get it all done, and that can result in stress and sometimes even anxiety.
None of this is healthy in anyway! I think that during these times its more important than ever to STOP and BREATHE. Especially for Moms and Dads.
Society has made us feel like we always have to be one step ahead of everyone else. We have to work that much harder because we want a bigger house or that brand new awesome 2019 vehicle. These are all material things that we will not be able to take with us to Heaven. God says to not cling to worldly things.
Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
I go against what society says. I would rather touch people with the Love of God than have all the money in the world, because in all actuality that is all that really matters at the end of the day. That is where you will find the most happiness. I think that instead of trying to impress other people with money and material things, impress them by your love and kindness. That is what Jesus did. And as Christians isn’t that who we are supposed to be acting more like? Jesus was the perfect role model for us, we just have to to follow those steps.
Let’s stop worrying about what the world says and start caring more about what God says!
