Easy, Yeah Right

I seriously want to throw in the towel. It sounds horrible, I know. Even though I don't really want to, part of me just wants CJ to quit school, get a cushy job again and have a steady income with benefits flowing in the door. I miss not having to pay for babysitting, friends my own age and stage, and doing life together. Sometimes, I wish that following the Lord could be easier.


  1. I hope you got my e-mail about the "pay it forward." I would love for you to participate and I so look forward to finding just the right thing to make for you!

  2. ...but then you see how far you have come with the Lord and realize that you wouldn't trade one moment of it to be who you used to be. You look back at these hard days and remember why God is blessing you so richly. You know that you are in the right place so you sigh and go about the work He has given you for this season. :)

  3. Thank you for being real. Don't we all feel that way at times? Praying for you and trusting Him to bring you the renewal that you need.

  4. I don't think it sounds horrible. You have made major changes in your life and I think God understands that sometimes we struggle with how hard it is to follow him. But Martin Luther said, "I can't keep the birds from flying over my head, but I can keep them from building a nest on it." Or something like that. The point is, it's ok to sometimes just get fed up and vent. But then you take those thoughts captive and remember that serving the Lord is the most important thing to you and that he will RICHLY reward you, overflowing, with his blessings.

  5. Hang in there! You aren't seeing the whole picture, but God is seeing your faithfulness and knows where it will lead you!

    There is nothing wrong with feeling the way you do, just don't stay in that place for very long. I have a feeling this is one of those times you'll look back on and tell your grandkids you were so glad you didn't throw in the towel because.........

  6. I don't think that it sounds horrible - it sounds "normal"! God will see you through this time and many other times! You are so special to Him! Praying for you guys!
