Sometimes You Get Handed Sour Grapes

Sour Grapes

So it's been awhile since I've been over to this side of the internet... Mommyhood, moving, homeschooling, pregnancy, lots of unknowns, and life in general have taken up my time.  Life is amazing while also being a bit bananas and crazy-town all wrapped together.

Today has been crazy-daisy. Do you ever have those days that all of life just seems too much to look at? That was me today. And it's not just because I'm a preggie-pop either. My Hubby and I keep wanting to ask God, "What are Ya up too? Cuz this doesn't make sense right now."  So far He is choosing His words carefully and is letting us think on that a bit longer than we would like to.

From so many well meaning Christians I've heard them tell us a million times, "God doesn't give you more than you can handle. He must think a lot about you guys for Him to give you this!"  As sweet as they are trying to be to encourage our journey, it really isn't true. The Bible says, "And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear." (1 Cor.10:13) It DOESN'T say that He won't give you more than you can handle though. Often times He gives me WAY more than I can handle so that I reach out to Him for help. If I could handle it all, I wouldn't think I needed Him. I need Him. Everyday. All day. All night even. He is my hope. He is my peace.

Yes, we are very blessed and very thankful to the Lord for all He has done and continues to still do. We are walking through some heaviness but I keep thanking the Lord that we haven't had any loss of life. There is always something to be thankful for. Everything we are walking through will one day just be another story to tell of how the Lord saw us through the craziness. We have a lot of those stories. This season has been like muddy waters to walk through at times BUT God has also brought so much joy into our family, healing to our marriage, and a new bundle to look forward to seeing soon. It rains on the just and the unjust. Just like Job, we are learning to praise the Lord when He gives AND when He takes away. It doesn't feel good but, just like my Dad always told me (like everyday!), "the world doesn't revolve around you!".

Tony and I have a theme song these days. It's Chris Tomlin's song, "Lord, I Need You" and the chorus is:

Lord, I need You, oh I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Amazing song so go look that puppy up!

Anyhoo, just a little mini-vent and rant on this so gloomy of days here in Sweet Home California.
