Faithful Friday

I know that most everyone has fear and insecurities. I am always blabbing about mine, y'all are probably sick of hearing about them. So I'm going to share it anyway (it is my blog). A huge insecurity/fear I have is the fear of not being accepted, or being rejected, or not being liked. I have found myself in the past few weeks in a role where I am feeling like I don't fit in or just feeling left out (I know this sounds very 5th grade). I don't however feel like it has been any ones intent, thing just happen. And I am fully aware that this is something that I have taken up all by myself (well, with help from the enemy). So my prayer has been lately that I NOT take any offence to this. God is so faithful! He has so sweetly reminded me that it's not about who you are, but whose you are. I have found great comfort in knowing that.

So to anyone today who is feeling a little like it is just you facing this crazy world alone. Remember that you are NOT alone. God is here, He is close and He is able to fill any and all voids in our lives. We just have to surrender it to Him. Once we do that, everybody is going to want to be our friend. He will so sweetly remind you, that it is not who you are, but whose you are and it's not about what you can or can't do, but it all about what He has can do and has done.

He is so completely faithful!

Shout out for Summer

I do want everyone to know that I am alive and well now that May is over. I feel like when my kids are in school that it is just as much work for me as it is them, especially at the end of the school year. So, we in the Chastain household are giving a big shout out for Summer. We are looking forward to a stress free, laid back summer.

I was asked this weekend what my favorite season was and my favorite activity during that season. Mine is definitely summer and my favorite activity during the summer is just hanging out with my kids, being a much more laid back mom, it is nice not being the Drill Sargent all the time. No scheduled ball games, ballet, bedtime, bath time(maybe a scheduled bath) and so on...YEAH!!

So, if anyone needs me this summer you can find me at the pool hanging out with my children.
