Also, here is a two minute video I love about Easter.
There are times when I have felt empty and downright depleted. I have lacked motivation. I have lacked desire to improve or complete anything. I have wasted time. I have lost my focus and direction. It is one of my least favorite feelings. I honestly hate it.
I have always tried to work hard, to improve and try new things. I have tried to keep on a schedule and work on my talents. I have tried to fulfill my life and my calling as a wife and mother. But sometimes the routine of life can make me forget to do fun things during the day. I forget what I enjoy doing beyond the day to day. And it makes me feel empty.
I feel most empty when I am not giving 100% on my prayers and scripture study. And why don’t I just go for it? Why don’t I give 100%? Because I know that God will give me the inspiration and help I need. When I can only give 50%, I know He will help me to make it closer to where I want to be. And all I have to do is ask. And try. And move forward.
But when I get stuck in that bad place, or I am overwhelmed or forget my goals, I do end up feeling empty. I feel frustrated and alone and sad. I know God understands my feelings and that He never wants me to feel that way. He wants me to turn to Him and trust Him and change. He knows what I can be and will help me get there. And all I have to do is ask.
