Saturated in The Word

The word of God so holy, so pure, so good.  Truth!!  So needed in the lives of mothers.  Being saturated in the Word takes place constantly.  To survive motherhood we need the Holy Spirit's guidance daily.  So how, can we as mothers saturate ourselves with God's word? 

We are very busy women, especially if you have a large family.  Time???  Time for God's word?  Well, uhhh, yeah I pray.  "Lord, help me!!! and change these kids, Lord!!  Lord, are you listening.  I am sacrificing daily to raise Godly children for your kingdom!!  Hello, God are you there."  Sounds oh so familiar.  I've been there done that.  This is why I can talk about it. 

My daily time with God had been much out of desperation so I could survive this motherhood thing that he has called me into.  Alot of "help me's" were cried out!!!    Alot of complaining and crying out!!!  David cried out. Yes, but he also declared who God was in his life.   

Declarations, confessions, and thankfulness has now taken place in my daily time with God.  You must be thinking I have a set time in the morning or evening to pray and declare.  Actually, I do it all day long.  Yes, I love to rise early in the morning and have "coffee time" with the Lord.  I love to read his word.  But most of my time with the Lord is spent while doing household tasks or while I nurse my 6 month old.  I even use my time in the bathroom to rejoice in Him.  When do I have time to read His word?  Usually, when I have moment to sit or rest I will open up the Word.  

My newest way to get the word has been to download messages on my ipod.  My favorite sites are KCM (Kenneth Copeland, Moore life Now (Keith and Charles Capp.  I've been soaking myself in the Word of God.  I feel so revived and I am walking with so much Joy and Victory.  Yes, victory!!  The same lady that use to cry out for help--"HELP!!" is now confident in her Lord and what He did for me when He died on the cross.  He died so I didn't have to struggle daily.  He died, so I can have life more abundantly.  He died so I can experience true love.  He died so I can live a life of the Kingdom.  He died so I can be healed of all my diseases.  He died so that I can LIVE!!!!

Such transformation takes place when you renew your mind daily in His word.  I start my day with thanksgiving, and then I confess His scriptures over my life and my family.  Out loud, I confess His word so I can hear it.  Because Faith comes by hearing, hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).  I also declare who I am in Christ and am reminded of how Good He is to me.  His word never fails.  If I have a need, I ask in faith and know I will receive.   I don't have to constantly be asking Him for the same things.  He has heard me and knows what I have need of and then I thank Him for it.  Even if I don't see it immediately I know it is coming.  Praise God!

Beautiful mothers out there that feel like life is just coming down hard on you.  Look up and be thankful that we have hope and we have an answer to EVERYTHING we can imagine.  If we don't know what to do with our teenager or our toddler--Ask and you WILL receive!!  He has not forsaken us.  He has given us the answers already.  He has met our needs and we always triumph in Christ Jesus.  Be thankful about everything and know we have God the Father on our side.  Yahoo!!!  Life should never be dull when we are saturated in His Word.  Hallelujah!!!

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
