So it's been a while since I've shared our daily life with our RAD kids.
Things were on an upswing.
Life was zipping on by smoothly (well, as smoothly as it can with children with trauma histories!) but this week?
It's just been little things here and there but today I feel like I've been broadsided by a bus.
I'll admit that everyone has been sick with the flu and I haven't had much sleep lately but today just takes the cake for over-the-top behaviors and emotions....theirs and mine!
I do believe there is a Spiritual Battle raging in the Heavenlies and I am here to announce that
WE ARE THE VICTORS
WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUEORS BECAUSE CHRIST LIVES IN US
WE WILL NOT GIVE UP, SO GET BEHIND US SATAN!!!!
But me oh my sometimes the flesh gets weak.
Sometimes the exhaustion consumes.
Sometimes that hopeless feeling seeps in.
Sometimes I wonder if I can do it one more day and then I am reminded that when I am weak, Christ is strong.
He tells me over and over and over again that I can do ALL things because He lives in me.
ALL things Lord?!
Are you sure?
'Cause goodness gracious I'm not feeling it right now.
Even parent 2 R.A.D. children that I love with all I am but sometimes (ok, alot lately!) I don't like a whole bunch?
Yep, even that. Afterall, that's what I've done for you.
I know Lord, please forgive me. Oh, and Lord...please HELP!!
