Love Life as a Mom, Part II
“Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible” Matthew 19:26
Last week I shared with you the first step to having a greater love for your life as a mom. I want to encourage you to let go of fear and deepen your faith with the knowledge that God is your rock, your fortress. With Him by your side you can overcome your fears.
This week I am excited to share Step 2 with you.
Step 2 – “A-HA!” God Moments
Have you ever had one of those “A-ha!” or “I got it!” moments? I know I have.
Many years ago, I was a living disaster. I was obsessed with anger, frustration, and refusal to forgive: my life was hard and my heart bitter. I clung to an eating disorder while I divorced my husband. Finally, I returned to God and He provided! My marriage was restored, my disorder conquered, and my life saved. Even the little things were answered: I remember praying desperately for socks for my young daughter when I had absolutely no money, and God provided. He gave me strength, but even greater than that, He carried me. He has been a constant and no matter how easy or difficult it is, He is there.
Once you turn to God and pray “help me, I am a living disaster” and you trust him with the outcome you will see your life change. The mountains that you struggle with will tumble and fall because when you have faith, when you give your problems over to God, He will provide.
“Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the highest heavens. You have done such wonderful things. Who can compare with you, O God?”
The rhetorical question: Who can compare with you, O God? This question is asked several times with slight variations, but the answer is no one can compare to God. God is the alpha and the omega. He is the beginning and the end. He with provide for you time and time again; if you let go of your fear and give your problems to Him.
Be an example to your children, friends and family of how God has blessed you. How you look to Him and have faith in his mightiness.
“My life is an example to many, because you have been my strength and protection.” Psalm 71:7
I will leave you this week with one final tip: Remember what God has blessed you with in the past. Remembering your blessings will help you get through today, tomorrow, and every day. This final tip will help you build your faith; see what God has done for you, and what he can do for you when you trust in Him.
What has God blessed you with in the past? What are you struggling with today? Share your blessings and your struggles with me.
