Yes, you can have both peace and productivity.
Spend your time meaningfully; don't spin your wheels.
Get things done - the right things - without getting stressed.
Have your plan and work it too.
Do not grow weary in doing good.
Our problem is we confuse productivity and organization with control. We put our energies into controlling stuff and controlling others, but we’re only called to control ourselves.
Before we can disciple others, we must be disciples. We must submit to God’s training just as the toddler must submit to ours. Trust Him. His training ground - your home - is a place where fruit of the Spirit can grow. They do grow for those who seek them; they do not magically appear to those who avoid exercising them.
All of life - even (especially!) mom life - is for sanctification. Our job is to be sanctified, not sanctify others.
Repent. Rejoice. Repeat.

Not only is my trigger working, but now I remember to pray even when I don’t see the trigger! Thank you so much- this is just what I needed!
Even on cold meds, I’m keeping my habit! ?
