Not in my own strength

Something I have had to really learn lately is that I cannot do what needs to be done around my house and during my daily life in my own strength. Someone on my facebook page reminded me of this today as well. I have been really been working on patience lately and it is when I get far away from the Lord is when I lose my patience and feel like chaos is taking over. I get comments alot when I am out in public about wow you must have alot of patience and how in the world do you do it. Well............ I now reply I do not do it, only through God can I do it. These past few days of this week have been alot better than the other days lately. I have been really feeling like life was spinning out of control but then I realized I was not relying on the Lord. I don't know where that lie comes from that God doesn't give you more than you can handle, that is not always true but He never gives us more than we can handle WITH HIS HELP. IF we never had to rely on him, if we never felt that hole, if we never felt helpless would we call out to him??? I think the biggest advice I could give to a new mom, a mom with many little ones, or just someone struggling is to pray, have your time in the bible, and find a wise lady(or wise elder man)that can really encourage you in the Lord. God is good but we just have to call on Him.
