stop it already!

God had a little talk with me yesterday. I'm still not all clear on what He said. I have too much junk in my own brain swirling around with His perfect words.

See, I am not content with being a wife and mother. I love my family, but I do not find it fulfilling the way so many friends of mine do. So, I surely must be bad. Good wives and mothers love it and find complete satisfaction in their role. What is Wrong With Me?

Well, God told me yesterday that probably nothing is wrong with me. That He made me the way I am and that I have to STOP comparing myself to others. At least, that's what I think He said.


  1. Honestly, I don't think there is anything really WRONG with you; you are human.

  2. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what He said :)

    Be who you are before God. And maybe the restlessness is a call to do something more than you are doing.

  3. That's exactly it! I was feeling so happy to have a "purpose" in writing. Then I felt ashamed. Felt that my children, husband and home should be enough of a purpose...
    but maybe for me, it isn't enough and maybe that is how God wants it!


I love to hear your thoughts!
