No one really knows what they’re doing...

We live in a world where everyone seems to be playing some weird game called, “I want you to think my life is more put together than it is.”


We think real life is unglamours, unpresentable, and if truth be told - mostly boring.


Our days are filled with dirty houses and laundry and the kids losing their minds at the end of a long summer break and their parents are right there with them.


We love Jesus and want to serve Him but we still have fights with our husbands, we get frustrated with our finances, we worry over every day details all the while feeling guilt because compared to so and so, we are failing at life.


Here’s something I know to be true; not one person really knows what they’re doing, where they are going, how they will get there or how they even got here, for goodness sake.


Everyone is doing their best to raise their kids, sometimes too hard and sometimes too easy. Everyone struggles with relationships, the ups and downs and mostly the what nows. Everyone has a million things they have to do that are not glamorous or Instagram worthy, that make life keep running.


The closer we get to God the more we understand the depth of our need for Him, the more we can say, “I have no idea what I’m doing or what to do now. Help me!”


Most of our lives are lived in the mundane and the messy, but God is there, loving us, teaching us, for us.


We are in desperate need of a Savior every day, not just once from hell. Ou joy is not found in how we think our lives should be, but in remaining in His love.


“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:9-11 #walkingreflections
