Just be…

My life is far from perfect and holds upset at every turn. I’m married, have four children and work full time. It seems like no matter how much I do it is never enough. (I know many of you reading can relate.)

The type of work I do takes extreme study time, focus, prayer and concentration. This is not easy to do nor is it always understood.  I continue doing the Lord’s work, even though I have a plate full of responsibilities with my home and family; as this was the calling placed on my life. There is a difference between a calling and a duty. It is my duty as a wife and mother to conduct myself as a Godly woman to my  family first as I am  to be an example at all times. This requires me to be cautious how I react to upset .  It is not easy to get up and have a million demands hit you before that morning cup of coffee.  During  a day of working  and then being in the home cleaning, cooking, meeting doctor appointments, grocery shopping, homeschooling 3 children,  being a nurse, counselor, mediator, referee, teacher, gardener, and caregiver to not only my family but ailing extended family; I meet the challenge every day of staying calm and maintaining my composure… My dress up routine is hair in a bun, t-shirt, jeans and no makeup. I’m too tired to doll up , unless I absolutely must.

I make it a point everyday to wake with a smile on my face, greet my family with love, speak words of love throughout the day and keep all tension far from my home. I purposely look for the good in everyone around me and purposely treat others how I would like to be treated. I don’t hold a judging eye or ear, as I want no one to judge me. I purposely speak positive words as I am one who refuses to hold a negative attitude.  I have learned that no matter how close you walk with the Lord and stay in his Word, you are not immune to upset finding you…

I love my imperfect life and every flaw it holds. I hold little money after bills are paid but I feel rich. I don’t see some of the upset I step into because I’m too busy counting all the blessings… When you see the work around you as a blessing; then the work involved doesn’t feel like work at all…  It is Friday, some things can wait until Monday so take the weekend to “just be”…  (Let all upset go and just be in the moment as  you purposely allow yourself to enjoy every second of your imperfect life; that is filled with perfect blessings all through it.)

Blessings,

Robin Worgull

  1. We are all called to do the Lord’s work in one form or another be it teaching, writing, care or prayer. In this lifetime it is also filled with Life. Life holds responsibility and needs which gives us purpose because we are human. God gives each of us a purpose to do or be what he has called us to; it’s a gift. When received as a gift there is joy and a desire to thank the giver. You love your gift my sweet sister that is obvious in the words you share with us from your heart. Thank you and keep writing. I love you!👭

    1. Amen Carolyn I agree… I love how you bring life into this as holding needs because sister it is true. There is life all around us that requires care or holds needs whether those needs be love or actual physical needs or even just sitting with someone… I absolutely love how you brought this us as it needed to be told and you are right whatever we are called to do is a gift.. I love you very much also and you are missed dearly but am praying wholeheartedly that the Lord help you help those you are around right now…. Big hug from me to you my beautiful Carolyn

  2. Well, if there’s any consolation Robin, it’s that you’re not alone. It’s amazing how my wife holds it together with all the demands she has on her. Your list is extensive! I’m lucky I just get to go to work.

    1. Chip, I often would like a job outside the home just to get a break. Your wife being able to hold it all together is a clear indication her heart is invested strongly in her family. (This is the only way I’m able to maintain strength is by the love I hold for my family.) Please hug your wife for me as we women must stick together. Lol
