So fast, the middle of the week has approached us. Its a good moment to reevaluate our plans and ideas with which we started this week, and see if we are staying committed to them. Well, some events may have occurred to distract us from our loving and hardworking job of educating our children, and we need to ponder on for a moment:
1) Have we been in constant meditation with our God?
It is necessary to meditate daily and throughout the day in His word to keep us on check with our tasks. A small deviation from our Daily Bread and it will make an effect in how we start behaving. Prayer is an amazing source of empowerment and energy. In Psalms 55:17 we read :“Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.”
2)Have we been checking off tasks in our to do list?
I stay accountable when I keep myself organized. My daily (and reasonable) to-do lists, keeps me on my toes of what I’m supposed to be doing any given time during the day.
3)Are we staying positive and focused on this week’s mission?
A good way to accomplish our weekly duties is to write what is the mission for that week. Writing which things need to get done, and including them in my daily to-do lists help me stay focused on fulfilling them, and going back to review what has been achieved, grants me a positive boost and helps me to remain focus on the next tasks.
I like to remind myself, that even if I begin to feel tired and not so cheery half way into the week, I can always just enjoy a simple moment of play with my children to remind me of my goals as a mother and as a Christian. I can count my blessings and thank God for them. I also know for sure, that I can seek God in all the weary moments as well, because He holds my hand and gives me peace.
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:4-7)
