I was talking to a friend about writing. Or, rather, juggling our desire to write along with raising kids and running a household. Basically, we each work 60+ hours a week.
Finding time to write isn’t so much the problem–it’s dealing with the tug between the desire to create, and the demands of duty.
There’s an old song by Carman that I listen to when I start feeling discouraged–it helps me remember that my desire is the confirmation–the destination is there. I thought that I’d share it today for other young mothers who feel the same way.
You’ve felt in your spirit
God’s shown you something new
Something that has strengthened you
And only you can do
But as your desire grew
You got a little depressed
‘Cause you found no destination
For your dreams to manifest
Your desire is the confirmation
the destination is there
God wouldn’t put it in your spirit if it wasn’t going nowhere
So set your sights on the promises and don’t you be scared
For your desire is the confirmation the destination is there
His vision’s for a certain hour
I know it won’t be late
His promises will strengthen you
If only you will wait
Don’t follow someone else’s dreams
Keep your own in sight
For the vision that God gives
Will keep you all your life
