GET REAL - WHAT WEARS YOU DOWN?
We haven't gotten real in a while. There are some things in my life that wear me down more than others. What wears you down will probably be different to what does it for me, but I think that actually being able to identify those things can help us recognise them BEFORE they wear us down completely.
REALLY - screaming, whinging, whining, squealing } any or all of these things being done (especially in the backyard) by one or all of my children all at once
REALLY - condemning & critical comments - bleh
REALLY - fear (memorising scriptures that specifically speak about not being overcome by fear have really helped me with this)
REALLY - lack of sleep
REALLY - lonliness
Proverbs 23: 15-16
My son, if your heart is wise, then my heart will be glad; my inmost being will rejoice when your lips speak what is right.
Feel free to share with us the things that make you human too :)
