1. This was a very powerful post for me. I have been struggling with my life in general lately and find that I am guilty of most of these.This made me realize that I really do need to work at being more selfless.
    Thank you

  2. Hi Jolene,
    This really resignated in me today. I am all of the above it seems. And my husband just resently said to focus on the positive and all the things God has give us. I believe that and know that is true, but I feel that it’s so hard when everything seems to be not going well. Being broke, having really no friends where we moved to after a year, feeling so worn out being home with two kids and feeling that I do so much with no time for me. I dont have any elderly women in my life for support and its a struggle to focus my time on my relationship with God. Any advice for a stay at home mom with a lifeless relationship with God.

    1. Pursue God, friend. If that means you eat a hot dog for dinner because you don’t have time to make a healthy meal, then so be it. Pursue God before all of your laundry and home are in order. Pursue God before your kids and husband have everything you and they think they need from you. Pursue God so your soul can thrive. Choose to be more like Mary who sat at Jesus’ feet rather than like her sister Martha who was distracted and busy. When your relationship with Christ begins to thrive you’ll have more joy. Seek ways to serve Him with your spiritual gifts. Find something to do that you enjoy (and don’t feel guilty about it!) We, as busy wives and moms, need to take care of our own spiritual well-being so we won’t go through life with a downcast spirit. I hope this helps!

  3. Thank you, I just pray that the Holy Spirit will melt each word into my heart to grow a healthy fruit!! God bless you and your family!

  4. Very powerful wisdom here, Jolene. Thanks for giving me something good to think and pray about today, friend. I know I’ve been guilty of many of the things you mentioned.
