21 Days of Reformation

A good friend of mine invited me to join her on a journey: 21 days of reformation. My job is to figure out what needs to change, and ask God to transform that inside me and show me ways to change.

Something that has grieved my heart a lot lately is rooted deeply in my attitude and disposition; particularly toward my children. I get so frustrated. I don't know how to enjoy them. I yell. I get mad. I wake up grumpy, and the day never really improves.

Right now I have no fascinating revelations regarding this problem in me. I'm merely hungry for a change. I long for God to do something with me because I surely can't fix up any of this on my own. He is the source of true joy and delight, so I will do my best to look to Him today.

HEEELLLLP!

Hey Lisa,
I love the post! So honest. I felt like you were talking to me. I miss you.
Welcome to the Reformation. There's more info on the practical stuff of what the Reformation actually looks like day to day on my blog under the date Sat. April 21 called "21 days of Reformation". There's also the actual blog site www.21dayreformation.blogspot.com My friend Cheryl will also be writing updates on there, and they are very encouraging.
Anyway, I'm so glad that we are doing this together. I always love our God talks and now our "God blogs". You are an amazing and beautiful Mom, and I love that even your 21 days of Reformation reflect that. Here's to new life, eh? Cheers!

Bless your heart for being real.
Being a mom is a really hard job and there are so many people and things pulling on us at once.
God can handle your real honest heart. I wrote about it today on the 21 Day blog.
It will get better, and He will help you make it better and help you to find peace in the chaos.
Keep pressing in.
