As a new stay at home mom (off the career track), I am often asked “what are your doing”?
I used to work in a hospital. I used to live in Nigeria and work with orphans. I used to have only 4 children. I used to call myself a nurse. I used to wear heels, have authority and opportunity. I used to school my children at home (temporarily). I used to go to that church. I used to…..
Now I don’t want to be defined. I just want to do what God puts before me today, faithfully.
Today I am up early to be productive. Today, although I am training, I am going to rest my running legs. Today I am a foster mother to a 12 year old who moved in 8 days ago. Today I am going to show my 3 teens how to clean the house while they live in it and watch. Today I am going to worship and I may turn some music on loudly. Today I am going to look forward to my hubby coming home, it’s Friday! Today I am going to answer the phone and be available to people. Today I am going to dress in cloths, no sports bra. Today I am going to reward myself with a book in the hammock and give thanks for satisfaction in all this.
I would like to someday use the grand experiences of my past to help and encourage others to live boldly. I am average but I choose abundance. Balancing today and yesterday aiming for the future. I am not finished yet.
What past are you allowing to limit your present?
What will it take for you to be content with your today?
