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 Ministries--www.kcm.org), Moore life Now (Keith Moore--morelifenow.org) 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!!!

Blessings.

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

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was rushing...kids to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
