I have been MIA for quite some time. I’m going through this little season where I have felt like doing absolutely nothing.. Not in a sense of laziness, but mostly being mentally and physically exhausted.
We are now 9 weeks pregnant with baby #2! I am anxious, excited, grateful, and SO happy to be blessed with another little miracle. But making a baby is tiring! Add on taking care of a toddler, working, fixing up the house, and every day life – my sanity is questionable..
I admit, I love when I can recognize a season God is taking me through. It’s like I can feel God’s hand working on my life and directing my path. My last season was a working season. We got a lot done on the house and it felt like we were constantly going – going – going, 24/7. It was tiring and stressful but I love seeing how much progress has happend in such little time!
This season of sabbath is a season to soak it all in.. Make memories with my not so little baby, my hubby, friends and family. I’m just enjoying the ride right now. Time doesn’t slow down for anybody BUT rest is crucial. I am already feeling restored and fulfilled. Feelings I haven’t felt in quite some time. Instead of rushing home from work to work on the house, I’ve been coming home and just spending quality time with my family (which was basically everything that I needed.) I could feel my body being drained of all I could supply, it was invigorating but definitely exhausting. At this time I’m being restored.. so I can work harder, be ready, and be able to face whatever comes my way. Planning is great but preparation is key!
Needless to say, I’m so excited for this next season!! I have a feeling it will be full of hard work, to-do lists, getting stuff completed, celebrating the holidays, and making every moment count!
Be sure to slow down & listen to God. He will lead you into the season you are meant to be in. And he will get you through whatever comes your way! I always thought I was just going through “phases” when I would take a month just to slow down, but now I see, these are my seasons. They come when needed. And I feel it’s my job to bask in them and take it for what it is!
If you feel like you’re in a “Season of Sabbath” or “Season of Rest” – do just that. Rest. Take life in a simpler approach for a little while. The laundry can wait. The dishes can wait. Spend that time with loved ones. Spend time with God. Spend time renewing your mind and your spirit! Worship. Praise. Be at peace. Relax. Recharge. Be still. Let go of your burdens.
Can’t wait to share what’s ahead! ♥️
“Come to me, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you REST.” – Matthew 11:28
