Spring – So Soon?

My husband is gone with the four olders, the littles are down for a nap for a couple of hours and it’s almost 60 degrees outside. You’d think I’d be itching to get outside and have some fun but I’m not. I have treasured this winter… treasured my time with the Lord, feeling close to Him, hearing and learning little things from Him, reading the Bible and contemplating many things in prayers and thoughts throughout the days. How can I get excited to leave that?  I have lots of weight to lose again, lots of days ahead to walk to get my health back, but I don’t look forward to it right now. It takes a lot of thought away from the things of God when I put it on losing weight, nutrition, etc…. I know I need to do it for many health reasons but I am not ready to say goodbye to a wonderful winter I had with the Lord, our family and new baby. Dieting puts a lot of focus on self and to tell you the truth, I am feeling a sense of loss and sadness to leave this season of winter behind me right now. So… I guess I will have to pray about losing weight as I did before; when to eat and what to eat. I can pray while I go for my walk in the morning and afternoon as He knows how I desire to still be so near Him. I am hoping to start Monday or Tuesday. I just thought I’d share my thoughts…  maybe I can enter into an even deeper place with the Lord this next season. I hope so. : )

Prov 16:3
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
KJV

  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time of resting in the Lord this winter. Amazing that even with a busy life we can have a restful life in the Lord. God is so good. I pray that He will guide you to easily shed the pounds from your pregnancy and you will feel balanced and healthy the whole time! Blessings!

  2. darn!! My original comment was eaten by the internet. :o(
    It was 54 here today and I felt the same way. I had such a Full Fall and Winter filled with His Word empowering my Faith to completely fill me to overflowing!! I get SO EXCITED!! I want to shout from the roof tops, knowing He does this for us ALL!! So many do not know what they are missing!
    I too need to get out and become less of me, and more of Him.
    (((HUGS))))
