Keep on Going

I skipped J in the ABC's of Homeschooling last week. I had a J, but didn't really have any blogging desire so I'm skipping from I to K.

K is for Keep On Going

"How do you do it?" I've been asked this question many times over the years. When the twins were tiny and on heart monitors, how did I do it? When Little Red was born 20 months after the twins and I had 3 really small people to care for, in addition to The Boy, how did I do it? Homeschooling 5 children, how do I do it? 

The answer is, I don't. Not by myself at least. I couldn't do any of these things on my own, but I can through the strength the Lord provides me each day. Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 

So my K is to Keep on going. Every day is a new day, and I try really hard to just take each day as it comes. I know that each day, the Lord will provide me strength sufficient to get through that day's trials - no more and no less. I would be lying to say I never worry about what the future will hold, but I try really hard not to do that.

For those who wonder how I, or anyone else, does what they do every day, when it seems like it would be more than what you could handle, it isn't. God's Word says He will give us strength sufficient for our needs. So my advice when your circumstances feel overwhelming is to Keep On Going, leaning on the strength of our Lord, strength sufficient for you each day.
