I received the Unglued Devotional by Lysa TerKeurst
in the mail and was completely blown
away after doing my daily readings.
Now I’ll be honest, this book is aimed to help all women; however, as a mom of two, aged 5 and 19 months, it appears this book was written JUST FOR ME. I don’t know of one mom who can honestly say she’s never come unglued. That she hasn’t had the one heart wrenching meltdown. That she hasn’t had that bathroom cry because you’re tired and overwhelmed and in need of some serious “grownup time.” I would be lying if I said this has never happened to me. Honestly, this has happens to me probably once a week.
I may have a meltdown and yell because I’m irritated. Or I may have to put the kids down for a nap early because I feel overwhelmed and I feel the frustration rising.
So who am I? I am a wife, who has NOT had a date night with her husband since Oct of 2011. I am a mom who rarely ever gets to venture anywhere without her kids. I am a daughter who tends to miss her mommy (yes I still call my mother, mommy). We live over 1100 miles or roughly 17 hours away from each other (this does not include stops for gas or sleep). I am a friend, who only has one friend within a 30-minute drive.
Do I come unglued? You bet. I love this unglued devotional. And I encourage all of you, regardless of whether you’re a mom, to stand up and say “I may come unglued but my God is bigger than that. I have a God that will help me have more patience to not come unglued. I have a God who gives me grace to get through each day and loves me beyond my unglued-ness.”
For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13)
