This week has been a challenge for me. I have been challenged at work by an extremely busy scheduled that left me little time to stop and pray. I have been challenged at home with disobedient and neglectful children that leave me tired and frustrated. I have been challenged by my own problems, by situations not entirely within my control that pull my focus to myself instead of my responsibilities.
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thes 5:16-18
But in this, I have been disobedient and neglectful. I must stop letting these situations interfere with time spent on my knees in prayer for my boys. It is my duty to them and to my Lord as their mother.
