I am Not at Stake. Psalm 42

I’ve been thinking about psalm 42. There’s so much richness there. And then this morning, I realized a mistake I made (a minor social embarrassment).

These kinds of things can just marinate in my brain and cause grief. Over something small! I question myself. I long for a redo…. I realize… I’M NOT PERFECT. and I’m not going to be. God’s spiritual fruit will be produced as I connect to the vine, but I must release the expectation that I am what’s at stake. I’m certainly not. But the gospel is. The truth is at stake. And the truth is that I’m chipped like this beautiful teacup. And my Father looks at me as whole and pure because of Jesus. #amen to that.

Why are you depressed, O my soul? Why are you upset? Wait for God! For I will again give thanks to my God for his saving intervention. I am depressed, so I will pray to you while I am trapped here…
Psalms 42:5-6 NET

I just want to encourage you moms and dads who are trying to teach your kids scripture by memory.

Don’t Give Up!

One of children is not as strong at rote memory, but we’ve been seeing progress lately, and it’s SO exciting to see the heart fill up with God’s word!

How can a young person maintain a pure life? By guarding it according to your instructions! With all my heart I seek you. Do not allow me to stray from your commands! In my heart I store up your words, so I might not sin against you. You deserve praise, O Lord ! Teach me your statutes! With my lips I proclaim all the regulations you have revealed. I rejoice in the lifestyle prescribed by your rules as if they were riches of all kinds. I will meditate on your precepts and focus on your behavior. I find delight in your statutes; I do not forget your instructions.
Psalms 119:9-16 NET

Motherhood Monotony

wpid-2016-01-12-16.06.06.jpg.jpg

I struggled with monotony a lot last week, and let’s face it, a mom’s work is monotonous. One more nap routine, one more time playing princess, one more time letting the kids “cook” (I.e. make a mess).

One more “No.”

Often, the monotony of motherhood is comforting. I guarantee it is for our children. . . . → Read More: Motherhood Monotony

Don’t you feel inadequate sometimes?

There are certain areas where I really struggle with inadequacy… One being mommyhood and another being confident in telling my friends about Jesus or discipling women.

But did you know that the active word of God makes us capable?

This New Year’s, Eat Bread

As we all make goals for 2016, I’m reminded to be content today with what God has provided…as he always gives us what we need. And we are all full if we partake in the broken bread, the broken body of Christ. Broken to cover my sins.

Fight for Time with God

As a mom with 2 young kids (and a third on the way!), it’s been difficult to set a good pattern of having time alone with God.

I personally find it difficult to focus on Bible reading and prayer in the evenings, so I always strive for the mornings. There have been periods where staying connected . . . → Read More: Fight for Time with God

Rule Followers v. Faith

I’m a rule follower, friends. I just like rules and think they make things work well. That doesn’t make following rules I don’t like easier for me (maybe?); it just means that I would rather have the rule.

But it’s not that great of a thing. You see, rule followers are judgers. For me, rule . . . → Read More: Rule Followers v. Faith
