Being A "Superwoman" Is Definitely Overrated

Just the other week, I started to feel like I was in a "funk." I couldn't really pinpoint where these "emotions" were coming from, but it was a feeling of being overwhelmed, and not being able to catch up with my things at home (laundry, cleaning, cooking). I even contemplated if it was worth me working at my kids school to have those things get behind. I figured it was going to be so much easier sending my kids to a public school, and this way, I could have the time "I" needed to get back on track.

Then, reality started to sink it, and the Lord was showing me how blessed I am to be in the position that I am in. He reminded me of how I felt with homeschooling and how done I was with that, yet I wasn't ready to send my kids off to school. Only He could have opened those huge doors to answer my hearts desire. My children are getting a wonderful education at a private Christian school, and I am fortunate enough to be there with them. What more could I ask for. I know more than enough woman who would trade places with me in a heartbeat.

Then, just to confirm those "emotions" I was having, I came across something that my friend posted on her Facebook page. I realized that I took my eyes off the Lord, and put them on "me." Looking back, I can see how the enemy was totally trying to discourage me, and make me feel doubtful about everything I was doing.

I would not want to be labeled a "Super Woman" after reading this. I think that title sounds so prideful. What I want to be known for is someone who always wants to be in God's will.
