One morning on our way to church, we found this at the end of the driveway! Through all the distractions and business, we could have just ran over this Awesome surprise! God has interesting ways to slow us down!
The pressure was on, this morning, because I slept in! I had 15 minutes to wake everyone up from a deep sleep without coffee! This was a big stumbling block for me because I woke up tired because I didn’t sleep well! My kids shoes went missing! Then suddenly the hair brush went missing too! Quickly fifteen minutes turned into five minutes for all of us to get out the door. The little things piled up and became a mountain with just a snap with my fingers! I realized at this point I needed to choose which direction to go! Peace or war? Peace always works the best, so we turned on the music for inspiration trying to make peace with sleepy kids. All These things are unique opportunities to live out how life happens quickly and so does frustration! Even if we make mistakes, we still have an opportunity to teach how to listen to each other and how to be humble! If we chose to be as hard as a spaghetti noodle when the pressure is on, we could snap. We need God’s help! His living water will help us be flexible in life! God already knows these challenges you face each day and will set up opportunities to teach us and our children. Keep your sights on things above because even when the day gets messy and the beginning and end come together in one big pile, remember there is something beautiful! We just can’t see it yet (Hebrew 12:1-2)!
My name is Michelle Morgan! I love living my life for Jesus in everything I do! I love teaching, reading, gardening, cooking, running, writing, jump-rope and outdoors! I am so thankful to be a wife and mother of 10 wonderful children! My favorite is doing life together with my family and friends by learning and exploring through everyday life! I’m thankful for my husband, children and church family!
If I wait for everything to be perfect, It won’t happen! So, I may have some errors in my blog, but my beautiful children right at my side! I pray to write a book while in this journey. I hope and pray all of you and your families are blessed and take a step out in faith on your journey with Jesus! Don’t let the fear of mistakes hold you back!
2 Corinthians 12:9-11, But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong

One thought on “Give our All to the one Who Loves us first!”
What a great message and reminder that God does put things in our paths to make us slow down, give thanks and glory to him. That is hard to do in a busy life with a calendar just keeps getting added to. Thank you for reminding me to stop, breathe, pray and take in the beautiful things God has presented in front of us.
