I am sorry---there is no way that I can type a study tonight. It has been a really really rough night around here. At least for me. Pretty much just for me. Some emotional stuff concerning my quilting hobby and how much of it that I need to just give up on out of necessity. Some days I just want to quit it all. The blog, the quilting, the machine---sell everything and have it out of my face always staring at me. I have spent over 20 years wishing for time to sew. I am weary of it. I threw out several projects tonight because I just had to. When something causes us to sin then it is our job to get rid of it. I was getting frustrated that I never had time to work on these projects. Lusting after having time to sew is no different than a man lusting after a woman. It really isn't! And the fact that it was causing frustration and un-happiness means that it had to go. My place in this world is rearing two boys. It's not about me!
I feel much better now just telling you gals. I couldn't really share that on the quilt blog. Most would not understand.
Now about this study---
It is now 11 p.m and Stephen is still wired for sound. This study always gets TOP priority once Stephen goes to bed. But I cannot find a happy medium. One week I tried type up the entire week at once. I just worked on it any moment of freedom that I had over the weekend until I had the week done. But then I felt my own quiet time lacking during the week. I use this study for my quiet time.
On the other hand, when I type it nightly I feel rushed at night to get it done in between the time Stephen goes to sleep and when he MIGHT wake up. He does in fact wake every night and end up in my recliner with me because his father's snores wake him and I have no idea how to combat that. He's got a loud fan. So I feel like I have to rush the study. I don't like that at all. And tonight I am just not up to that.
So I think I am going to go back to typing the whole study at once--and then reviewing it each day as it posts.
Thank you for your understanding in letting me share some heart stuff tonight. Not that it was your choice :)
Today lets all be in prayer that we are giving God our BEST time each and every day. We will get back to chapter 11 tomorrow but you could read ahead and read it again when I post about it. A little extra reading in God's Word never hurts!
Have a good day in our Lord!
