What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

Help! I'm Stuck in a Rut!!!

>> Thursday, May 13, 2010

I've fallen in a rut, and I can't get up!! The last 3 weeks have been hard on me and I can't seem to get myself out of the "ho-hum" mood. I really hate it when I feel like this. Nothing seems to motivate me!

Is it the pregnancy blues? I'm waiting on the nesting stage to kick in. It would be nice if it kicked in about now. It doesn't help that I can't breath half the time.

Could it be homeschool burnout? I'm definitely ready to call it quits! But knowing that we won't get much done in August means that we need to keep pressin' on at least until July!

If anyone has any suggestions, or any motivational tips, please let me know. Any encouragement would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Keep Pursuin' Him!!

I get the ho hum homeschool blues sometimes and that's when I know I need to take a week off and just not "think" about it. And then I can get back on track.
As far as the ho hum feeling, I think that comes with the territory. Just be around things that make you happy. Put on the songs that make you want to dance and put you in a good mood. That almost always works for me.

As far as homeschooling, take a good look at your curriculum and ask yourself what really needs to be done. Sometimes we have expectations that don't fit the age of our kids and the stage of life. Give yourself permission to change...give yourself permission to take time off if you need it! I take three full months off in the summer. I NEED IT. The kids still learn so much all summer, just because we always have them around books, crafts, the kitchen, gardens... the learning never really stops even if the workbooks have.

My motivation comes from spending more time in prayer, more time talking with other moms, and just reminding myself that I love what I am doing and doing what I love - being a homeschooling Mommy! I prayed about this, am looking forward to hearing how the Lord answers this honest cry of your heart.
