All this Stuff

After this mornings show I felt good. I also felt like God had been speaking to me and not anyone that was listening. I get wrapped up in the next best thing from time to time. Right now I am not so patiently waiting for the newest Palm phone to come out. It is SWEET!
I was talking with a girlfriend today and told her that I have all this stuff that I am feeling and I have no reason to feel it. I am overwhelmed(okay that one I can maybe understand), frustrated, antsy, stressed.....and the list goes on.
The thing is, I'm not sure why I feel this way. I really don't have a reason to. I need to spend more time in prayer and walking with God and I know that. But for some reason I still chose not to do it. My bible is in my purse. It has been for about a week now. I read it briefly at the ballpark the other day. But that was it. I haven't opened it since. I do speak to God on a daily basis and I am thankful for the things we have and He has given us. But why all this stuff? Why am I feeling all these things? I don't really have a good reason to. Can anyone else relate? Do you every have all these feelings or emotions that you don't know why they are there?


  1. I am thankful that I found your podcast. Boy, can I ever relate to you. My husband signed up for the National Guard this week. He will be leaving for bootcamp soon. I'm so excited for him. However, I also feel so overwhelmed. I can't sleep. I constantly feel like I'm standing at the edge of a cliff. I worry about little things like "I don't even know how to start the lawn mower!" I should be trusting God more.

    I've been doing a great Bible Study of Beth Moore's. I've been praying and praying. I know God has already given me his peace... I'm just stubborn. I haven't been able to accept that peace for some reason. My hands and heart are wide open!

    Thank you for your podcast!

  2. Hi Faith!
    I'm glad that you found us! I know those feelings. Even though my husband was in the military when I met him I still had those feelings when he got ready to deploy. I learned early on don't sweat the small stuff. Things will change and change and change again before they go back to the original plan. The lawn will find a way to get mowed.(even if it is with some lawn boys that you hire...hint hint, that's what I did :)
    Remember if God brought you to it He will see your through it. Some days are easier than othes but this to shall pass.
    Thank you for being a strong woman who will make a great military spouse and please thank your husband for serving our country. I think being a military family is one of the biggest honors and privileges that we have.
