Staying Focused

handsAlright Mommas – I’m reaching out and asking for prayer. Each of us have times when we are feeling weighed down or pulled in different directions. I am in the THICK of it and I’m not sure how long this time of despair will last, but I know God is faithful and that our prayers make a difference. For anyone reading this I pray you are experiencing a season of fulfillment and joy. However, if you’re with me – in a “valley” of sorts – I hope you’ll join me in finding comfort in today’s “Jesus Calling” entry:

February 19:

“You are feeling weighed down by a plethora of problems, both big and small. They seem to require more and more of your attention, but you must not give in to those demands. When the difficulties in your life feel as if they’re closing in on you, break free by spending quality time with Me. You need to remember who I AM in all My Power and Glory. Then, humbly bring Me your prayers and petitions. Your problems will pale when you view them in the Light of My Presence. You can learn to be joyful in Me, your Savior, even in the midst of adverse circumstances. Rely on Me, your Strength; I make your feet like the feet of a deer, enabling you to go on the heights.” Exodus 3:14; Habakkuk 3:17-19

I pray we can “break free” together and truly focus on God’s Light and not the darkness we might be enduring.

I am praying for you – knowing God is watching over each of us and I covet your prayers. Thank you for being amazing woman, mom and partner in this journey!

    Kasey: You are in our prayers. . . your transparency gives all of us who believe in your ministry the opportunity to be more specific in our prayers.
    As you know, we are grandparents and our children are enjoying their families. We still enjoy reading your books and articles. God has given you a special wisdom and the gift to know how to share it. He who has begun a good work in you will. . . never forsake. . . will hear. . . the answer is on the way. Sally for Jim too!.

    Praying for you, Kasey! I understand the feeling. Praying that you will be able to turn your eyes upon Jesus and let His love for you be balm to your soul.

    I just love Jesus Calling. Always seems to be what I need to hear from The Lord in each and every season. Praying for you tonight…as I try to turn my mind off and catch some sleep! :)

I have a love/hate relationship with fall. These are the leaves from one tree - one. We have 9 more waiting #29bags #ugh Such a great day - but it was HOT!! 92 degrees in October!?! #Kansas #mysweetboys One kid serving at Kansas City Rescue Mission, another spending the night with a friend and James found some huge leaves while hanging out with his great grandparents #greatfridaynight #familyfirst First time in #IKEA #heavenonearth Text from our oldest boy. He knew I was trying to finish work a little early so I could get our youngest and I told him I'd try to pick him up from school too. I failed on both accounts but b/c of my boy I was able to finish my work and yes, we are going to have an AWESOME "chill night" #olderchildrenrock #proudmomma  @mrjohnson2 rocks!!! The lady in this picture sure looks happy. I can't WAIT to feel the same way!! Thanks to the amazing men in my life I get to have a massage tonight and the timing couldn't be more perfect! Love you @portedo @mrjohnson2 How we end a night of family pictures - the boys were so patient and sweet - and @sharayalm is amazing! #Pitiful
