Raising Children to be After Gods own heart in a world full of distractions and busy schedules can be interesting! I can’t do this without God! It’s Choosing to seek God and His righteousness in all the business (Matthew 6:33). Being flexible because plans change while the to do list grows! Praying God orders my steps and letting go of perfection! Choosing to live each moment everyday to live out being a mom after Gods own heart and to cling to His ways and not my own (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)!
As a wife and mom of ten wonderful children, Winter showed up in a big way. My children were so excited to play in the snow! They demanded gloves, snowsuits, and boots. I tried pulling winter gear out but couldn’t get all of it out in time! So, I decided to give all of them a pair of mismatched socks and quickly went out the door. I was stopped in my tracks by my sunflowers! They were completely covered in ice and snow! They look frozen in time! In all the noise, I had all my kids come see this amazing sight that you don’t see everyday! I realized unexpected things can show up and God has prepared us in His word how to be awake and alert! Keep watch! (Mark 13:26-37)We can see God everywhere! God wants us to be prepared not knowing the time or hour of his return! We need to keep our lamps full (Luke 12:35) and fix our eyes on Jesus(Hebrews 12:2).
In life, summer really can shine in a big way in the deep cold winter! We just need to be still (Psalm 46:10). In in All the storms life can bring, we can see and experience Gods mighty hand working everything out for Good for those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). All we have to do is seek God in everything (Matthew 6:33)!
I’m praying for All Moms out there raising Children After Gods Own Heart! God bless All of you and your families!The Journey Begins
