Being Swallowed up.....

Being swallowed up by life is where I find myself as of late. Waking early to only work my way through

a very busy day where there never seems to be enough hours. Going to bed at night wrestling with thoughts of what or who did I miss? A busy season of my life. Full..
I could here His voice saying, "Robin, there are so many things you're preoccupied with. Be about My business, not yours..."
So I've been praying daily, "Lord, teach me what is pleasing toYou."
Being swallowed up by this life and just drifting is useless if I don't keep in mind why I do what I do.


I desire to be a Christian wife to my husband. Not because he's the perfect husband but because one day I will stand before Him and He will judge me for my role as wife and I don't want to disappoint Him. I want Him to say, "Oh, dear Robin, you relied on Me..You trusted me..You forgave even when you didn't have to, You loved the man that I gave you with all of your heart and soul. You desired to do him good all the days of your life." (ok, so I don't always do this...)
I desire to home school my children. Not because I am smart or fearful of the world but because one day I will stand before Him and the time I spent teaching my children about Christ will be there and I want there to be lots of hours before Him..I want Him to say, "Well done my good and faithful servant, You messed up but you were faithful"....

I desire to be swallowed up by this life of my mine but I must be about my His business and managing His business in my life takes all of me....so if my posts are slow in coming please know that I'm about my Fathers business as wife and mother and some days His business calls allllllll day.
Just like you I'm busy training my children. This is an all day, everyday task..I train and then train some more.
I discipline and love and cherish each one of them and when they leave my home I want them to remember me as a loving, devoted mother not a loving, devoted blogger :)....

Amen to that, Robin! Thanks for all the encouragement you give us all to pour our whole selves into this most awesome call and privilige to raise up world changers for Christ!
It's been months since I've blogged!

Absolutely true! Keeping priorities straight is half the battle. :)

Thankyou for the reminder of what's important. I needed to hear that right about now as I've been stressing about not getting to blogging (which is silly because I've always maintained that real life must come first)
Have a wonderful weekend
Renata:)
