The creators and writers of Must Love God want this place to feel like Community, a Sisterhood, a circle of Grace.

Because really, we’ve all been there (or will be there).

single girl living, making our own money, taking care of parents,

colicky babies, potty training, stepping on legos, detangling hair, helping with homework we don’t ourselves understand, preparing our child for college or leaving the home, wanting to protect our kids from harm, disagreements with husbands,

and even the unthinkables : empty arms, broken homes, devastation

What’s a girl to do…

So many times we try to do things on our own, I mean, we know God loves us, but these toys strewn all over the floor…He can’t care about that can He? I try to memorize scripture and read my Bible…but the dark cloud still looms around me.

It’s not that I’m not happy, I just don’t feel well.

I feel as though my first four years of motherhood have been in a fog.  It’s a vicious cycle of trying to get it right, failing, and trying again.  The shear exhaustion associated with motherhood was never explained to us before we joined the circle.  Even as a single woman fresh out of college, I experienced exhaustion as I would strive to do the right thing.

So here, in this Circle of Grace, this Sisterhood, this Community, know that you are not alone.  You can let your hair down (or tie it up in a pony tail even) and get real!!  Know that those of us walking together have been there.

2012 is the year for new adventures.  The fog is gonna lift and we’ll journey to the living well and find happiness and contentment that comes from Him who gives us life.  We will learn that no matter our circumstances, no matter our pain or our past, we

MUST LOVE GOD

Not necessarily a quick fix, I mean a 7 year history of depression and anxiety isn’t going to magically leave because I turned the page on the calendar.  But my handling of it will. With my new friends (that have also walked alone down this path) walking with me, I’m going to change my lens for this year…viewing myself and my situation through God’s eyes.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all you heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:30

Physical, Mental, Spiritual, and Emotional wellness…we will find it at the living well together.

This month we will be talking about typical January stuff, but with a Must Love God twist (because we’re fun like that).  Feel free to visit the contributors and love on them.  And in return visit us here so we can love on you!!!

These are our trenches, the trenches of womanhood.  Let’s change our thought process, switch out the lenses.  Right now, tonight.
