In life, I've learned that society perpetuates this idea of "having it all." It introduces a perception that we must choose between our dreams or a family. I believed this for some time. Not in the sense of having to choose one or the other but being forced to demand the ability to have both.
As a believer in Christ, his word reminds us that with him, all things are possible. He tells us to ask and we shall receive yet we tell ourselves that we must decide what's more important in our hearts: love or the dreams within our hearts.
Years ago, I found myself wondering why women had this difficult decision and the Holy Spirit left something in my heart that is still so profound: God never told us we had to choose one or the other. He provided us an example of the Proverbs 31 woman not to show us this unattainable view of perfection but to show us something wonderful.
Within our natural strength we are presented with the reality of having not enough, full of imperfections, and simply not being who we think we should be. However, with him, He places His super on our natural, ultimately giving us the grace to do ALL THINGS while being an inspiration in the process.
We don't have to ask ourselves or anyone else how. We just trust God and place one step in front of the other. Placing one brick at a time and believing God to take care of the rest.
