At This Time of My Life

At this time of my life I am single.
At this time of my life I am a full time college student.
At this time of my life I should be training to do my “dream job”, that of a wife and a mother.
At this time…how can I do that?!

There are times I feel so overwhelmed with my current occupation of college that I wonder how I can ever accomplish those other tasks, those other things in my life that are JUST as important!  My mind tells me, “Those things don’t have due dates.  They can wait.”  But can they? This is the time of my life when I should be taking advantage of my time at home to learn all that I can, yet I find time slipping away as I bury my nose in my books.  This can’t be good!  The Lord has been making me aware of my situation.  Obviously, college is not my complete future.  This is only temporary.  Juggling my time can be a challenge, but I am reminded of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Psalm 61:1-4  “Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.  From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.  For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.  I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings.  Selah.”

Looking around I see nothing but a long list of things that need to be done:  things to clean, things to study, things to practice.  The list goes on!  But I’ve come to realize that without my consistent relationship with the Lord, everything WILL crumble around me.  There is no doubt about that.

At this time of my life I am focusing on the Lord, trusting Him to guide me where I need to go, trusting Him to give me the strength to go there.
