Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…


Right now, I am going through some tough stuff. Right now, being a wife and mom is harder than I could have imagined. I have cried and sobbed and pleaded with God in my closet. At the same time, I am asking Him “what is the point? Why do I bother asking/pleading with You? You are going to do what You are going to do. You are going to do what is best.” ( Psalm 116:2) I struggle sometimes worshipping God simply for who He is. I forget that His value doesn’t change. I don’t like my circumstances right now, but that shouldn’t matter. God is God and because He loves me, sent Jesus to save me, THAT is enough to worship.

I am learning that I need to give unconditional love, forgiveness, and support because of my trials I am going through right now. I am reminded that even though I don’t like what God is doing or allowing, worship should not be conditional. Worship needs to come from my heart, not my head or how I feel about my circumstances.

It is hard. I am struggling. I am relying on His grace.

Be blessed:)

  5. So many prayers heading your way, Jen. I look forward to catching up a bit tomorrow 🙂

  6. Dear Jen,
    Your desire to worship God in the midst of your pain is beautiful…He hears your sacrifice of praise (Psalm 50:23)…praying God continues to comfort you in your tears and gives you hope…hugs to you.

  7. […] let go of my expectations~~ what I WANT. I need to want what He knows is best for me. I can’t worship God based on circumstances. I don’t have to thank Him for the valley, but I do need to be […]
