With whatever season of life you’re in. Whether you’re a stay at home mom. Whether you go to work everyday. As long as you’re being obedient to Him, can you actually believe that God has you right where He wants you to be?

BEING A MOM
As a stay at home mom, it’s easy to fall into the trap of the mundane. Every day is the same. You get unmotivated and discouraged at your every day tasks and the demands of young children.
This is something I relate so well to. Which is why I’m writing this post. The other day, I loaded all the children up on the gulf cart, and we went riding around the property. For me this was not that exciting, but the children loved it.
In the midst of riding the gulf cart, I’m thinking of all these things I want to do on my blog. I honestly would have rather been in front of my computer typing away or reading my friend’s blog posts.
But no, I’m with my kids, trying to keep them entertained and occupied. What’s important to my children is that I’m just BEING WITH THEM.
There are moments of my every day mothering and being in the home, where it’s just plain down BORING!
But then there are those moments.
Those moments of “coincidences” or “God moments.” Something happened to happen at the right time with my children. Or in the every day things I’m doing, something happened ironically.
These moments are not coincidences or ironic! Every time those moments happen, God is asking me, “Daughter, can you believe I have you right where I want you to be?”
Then I repent, “Oh, God, forgive me. Forgive me for having a bad/negative attitude towards these every day actions I need to do. Forgive me for not believing this is exactly where you want me to be.”
The Lord is constantly reminding me of my purpose in mothering. Here are a few other posts related to this:
BEING A BLOGGER
Taking this another route… being a blogger.
I’m constantly thinking, “I want more readers, I want more followers.” (I’m spilling my heart out here, being completely real with you.)
It is easy to get discouraged as a blogger. You don’t know if anyone even really likes what you’re posting. You don’t know if what you’re typing has any effect or influence on people.
It’s easy to compare yourself to other bloggers. The devil likes to throw out constant lies to get me discouraged. But then again, God steps in and reminds me, “Daughter, stop thinking that you’re not where you should be with your blog. Can you believe I have you right where I want you to be?
You don’t have to be a mother and you don’t have to be a blogger for this to be true in your life. With whatever season of life you are walking in right now, as long as you are walking in the obedience of the Lord, you are exactly where He wants you to be.
(One thing I do want to mention- don’t use this truth as a copout to not be growing. It is crucial that you are intentional and growing on a daily basis!)
He has you right where He wants you to be. He is working in you and in the people around you right now.
