I'm having one of those days. I spent some time talking to God about it already. Ya know, those days where you think is this it and am I doing it right?
Sometimes I wonder if, like the country song says there's gotta be something more, gotta be more than this. And not in a discontent way. I love being a wife, mom, working with teens. I just wonder if I'm doing it right, good enough, am I the right woman for the job?
Do I love my kid in the right ways? Teaching her? Training her?
Do I show my husband love and respect in ways that are meaningful to him?
Do I invest enough time in the teens that I work with?
Do I demonstrate a godly lifestyle before them that I'm proud of?
(and in a not ashamed of kind of way, not in a PROUD kind of way)
Do I love the people around me in real, tangible ways?
Do you ever have days like that? Fortunately I know that God desires obedience and that being obedient means bringing Him glory. So, I suppose my outlook should be...
Do I love my kid in a way that will point her toward the Lord?
Do I show my husband love and respect in a way that is honoring to God?
Do the teens see Christ in me as I work with them and live life in front of them?
Do people know that when they call me I will respond as Christ would respond?
Obviously the answer isn't yes to all the questions all the time - but at least I know that I have a goal to aim for and that there IS something more than just this earth.
