If I Knew I Could, I Would..... Five Minute Friday

Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
We throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not. For five minutes flat.

Today's topic is.... "If I Knew I Could, I Would..."

... have so much more discipline in my life.   Being home with my children all day lends to a certain amount of discipline and routine, but I'm talking spiritual, emotional and physical discipline.   How can I be one of those moms who homeschools, keeps a smoothly running house, staying physically fit, and still manages to encourage others?  

If had I this disciple I KNOW I could do greater things with my life - things I feel God has placed it on my heart to do.   I love encouraging others, sharing ideas and interacting with other homeschool moms.    

Recently I've felt the pressure of the "popularity contest" in this funny thing called the blogosphere, Twitter, etc... is getting in the way of what I know I CAN do.   The people I serve are living right under my own roof, not inside of my computer.    If I knew I could, I would completely tune out the noise of negativity and jealousy. 

I am feeling the tug to PRIORITIZE and just do what is worthy for my family, myself and my GOD.

If I knew I could I would do bigger things in the areas of homeschool curriculum and instruction, what I really LOVE.   While I'm writing (with just one minute left!) I feel that I need to make it my goal to take hold of my life and set some GOALS.  

Thankfully, I have a God that hears prayers and answers according to His purpose for my life.  How awesome is that? thankful for Five Minute Friday - it just gave me much needed clarity!
