2014_02_02 Chaos

It has been extremely difficult for me with all the changes homeschooling has brought into the typical day around here {I’ll share more on that with you later} and I have literally been falling apart. I will even venture to say that depression found its way into my living room for a spell. But for the life of me I could not figure out why. Nothing out of the ordinary was going on. We had been planning and practicing for this all year long, so there were no surprises. So why was everything so messed up? Why was I drowning and failing so miserably at everything that had once come so easily?

The answer was more powerful than I ever even considered. The difference was Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit! HaKodesh no longer flowed free in this space! The house, my spirit, my mind was all consumed with chaotic energy and distractions. There was no longer enough still and quiet for the Spirit to be heard, to bring comfort, to cover everything with Shalom. My prayers were no longer conversation with God. My worship, what little of it there was, was no longer fellowship with Him. They had both turned into desperation thrown at Him and it was so loud that I couldn’t hear the responses.

So this month, the teacher in me gets to teach some things I have never taught before. This month’s focus is on prayer, meditation, and affirmations…not just for me though, for my children. Teaching a child to be quiet on the outside, may benefit you for a moment, but teaching them to be quiet on the inside will benefit the whole Kingdom for a lifetime and beyond. I am expecting great things from this journey and looking forward to all it will bring with it along the way. I hope to share more as we go along and, as always, if you would like to join us on this journey let me know in the comments or come by Facebook, Twitter, or G+ and let me know.

Chodesh tov {Have a good month} beloved! Shalom!~

Surrendered to Him~
