Mom Life Raw: One Day at a Time on the Grind

ipad pictures 1118This weekend I came down with a bug. I was “sick as a dog”, as the saying goes. I think I felt the worst I have felt in years minus the surgeries I have had in the past. I was laid up in bed for an ENTIRE day. Luckily my mom lives 30 minutes away and came to watch my three kids and niece while my husband took my son to his football game. My mom soon left and my husband was all alone with our four kids and my niece who lives with us. Lets just say husband had lots of video game time, baby enjoyed lots of walker time, teen loved the cell phone time and the other kids seemed to have enjoyed TV and house disaster time, so it seemed. The house was a doomsday meltdown. Where was my order? Where was my all togetherness? I was too sick to do anything about it. This momma had to lay back down. I was not feeling well to run things back in mommy order. I had to say yes to covers and my comfy bed, something I wasn’t quiet use to. I am MOM, I am Super-mom and Super-mom’s don’t get so sick they can’t get things back in shape. But this time was a time like no other, I had to rest this sickness off the whole day.

The next morning I was feeling semi my self again. Not in a best of shape, but enough to get the 5 loads of laundry done, the dishes washed and put away and the house swept  and back in order. As hubby was off to work I and was cooking lunch I had to ask a question I wasn’t sure if wanted to hear the answer to… “So did everyone have fun without mommy yesterday?” My guess was they were gonna fake it and say “yes we missed you” or “we had fun with daddy”, but not at all. To my surprise they all looked at me with this despairing look, as if their favorite pet died. Each of them made their eyes to me in a sombering, lonely, help me kind of look. I had to laugh, it was hilarious. I continued, “Is that a look of you had so much fun you wish I was back in bed or a look of I’m glad to see you?” To my astonishment they were soooooo glad to see me and was back in Super-mom mode. They all were glad things were back in mommy order. We cleaned rooms and did a tidy up in the house and lunch was served as well as dinner on time and might I add they grubbed it. Apparently They were so glad mommy and auntie was back. Who would have thought? Getting the house in order was better than having blown out free day?

It was a warm feeling to know I am wanted and needed.  As moms we have to know we are not invincible, we have to take care of ourselves and even if things don’t run as we would hope they would we have to let it go. We have to make sure we take care of ourselves that way we can be at our best to care for everyone else. On another note, we have to also understand that dads will not do things like moms do. Why not? you ask, simply because they are dad and not mom. Dad’s are not build like moms, we are built to nurture and to care for our children and homes. There are things that come natural to moms that don’t come natural to dads and that’s just the way it is. Let dad handle The Fort “somewhat” and everyone will be just fine. Yes the kids may sneak and throw the food back in the pan when he’s not looking, yes the baby may get into things while he’s playing video games with his headphones on, but they will learn. Remember give them the benefit of the doubt and when in more doubt just trust God. Pray and leave everything in God’s hands while you are praying for your healing.

Don’t worry mom we may not be invincible but we do have a God who will always be where we can not. Give your family over to the Lord daily as you pray and spend time with God. Build a relationship with God by having your daily quiet time. Hand your family over to God and the Lord will not let you down. The Lord is our ultimate source. As moms we should get our strength and direction from our Heavenly Father. Pray for God to be your husbands source as well. Your husband is the head of your household and as the head he has a big responsibility. Pray for God to be his first and most important. When mom and dad are both channeled in God’s direction there is no devil in hell that can bring that Fort down. Stand strong moms in prayer and petition for your household.

God’s Truth for Mom:

 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that God corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this. Proverbs 3:5-12

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:4-9

A Little Whisper to God:

Dear Heavenly Father,

   I know that I am not invincible or Super-mom. I cannot do this Mommyhood walk alone, I need you daily. I need you to be Lord over my life. Lord I confess today that I give my full trust over to you. I trust in you with my whole-mommy-heart. Lord help me to seek you daily and continue to trust in you. I give my family over to you 100 percent to do your will everyday in their lives and help me to be the mom and wife you need me to be for them. I pray that you direct me in what you have called each of my family members to do for your kingdom and I pray that will work with you in helping bring out the best in each of them. Thank you Lord for being a personal God, who cares for me and my family every single day. I give you my Mommyhood to do your will so that I can be pleasing to you every step of the way. I pray that my house will be a house that stands on God’s Word with a solid foundation.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

All You Do Is Worth It!!

With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15‬:‭58‬ MSG)

“Come on kids let’s go! Hurry time for school! Hurry and eat we have to go! Hurry take a bath it’s bed time! Hurry do your homework! Hurry you have practice!” As moms we go, go, go and it feels like we are in a rush, rush, rush. Not to mention the piles of house work we have to do daily. I have 4 kids, 1 teenage niece, and a husband I know all about loads of laundry and dishes. With all of life’s demands and our daily routines as moms we can get overwhelmed quickly and feel is what I’m doing even anything at all? Well I tell you what Mom, yes it is, it’s totally worth it. Everything we do is unto The Lord. Every effort we put into raising our kids doesn’t go unnoticed to God. He see’s your hard work every single day. He see’s us changing that little infants diaper, He see’s us helping that teen with her homework, He see’s us encourage that young child in his sports, and He see’s the dinner you prepare everyday for that precious family. He even notices the load of laundry you have to do everyday just to keep the basket from over flowing. God is a personal God, He see’s our daily struggles and efforts as mom and even more He wants to be apart of it. Yes, He wants to be apart of your daily Mommyhood challenges, must do’s and to do’s.

As we get up in the morning and give our day over to Him, He will honor us and bless us. We don’t have to run around with our heads in a sour pickle jar. Every morning take time to pray to Him and spend a little time with Him. We don’t have to do everyday alone. You will feel so much more relief and peace when you just take moments out of your busy schedule of “hurry to do’s” and first give it to God.

And, mom, everything you do isn’t going unnoticed. God see’s you and it is all for a higher purpose. You are raising the next generation. Your bringing up a life. Your responsible for raising possibly a life that one day may impact another life and be the reason someone has an opportunity to get to Heaven. We are disciples for God doing our part to build His Kingdom.

You are in the mist of raising up His army, God’s Army of warriors. You go mom!!!

With love,

Jessica Taylor

-Dear Heavenly Father,

    I thank you for being a personal God and wanting to be apart of my daily life. I pray Lord as each day comes my way I give it over to you fully. I pray that I will be diligent in walking in obedience to Your Word. I want to be the mom you called me to be. I realize in order to achieve that I can not do it alone. I pray that I will fully commit to walking in your straight and narrow path that You have placed for me. Today Lord I commit to seeking Your will in my daily mommy challenges, struggles and daily duties. As I daily commit to You I know I will walk into all the promises You have for me and my family. Lead us Lord to Your greatness as I choose to surrender my day over to You one day at a time. Let Your Glory shine in and through me as I submit to Your Word and seek You with all my heart, will and emotion. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Drawn by Faith

Drawn by faith
Written by Jessica Taylor. 9-5-14 Published 9-16-14. NIV Bible.

Faith is drawing near to God by the blood of Jesus. We are able to draw near to God so that we may receive His mercy, love, grace and ever present help. Pray for the Lord’s salvation today. With Christ salvation you will be washed of your sins and forgiven. Through the washing of the blood we have been cleansed from our old self and can drive forward to a new beginning. Earnestly seek the Lord through prayer and fellowship with Him. He is a daddy that will and wants to be apart of your daily lives. He will never leave your side. Draw close to the Lord and He will not let you down.

“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. .” Hebrews 10:22 NIV

Remember You are worthy! Why? Cause God says you are and that is all that matters.
Look to the Lord where ever you are in your life. God has created you for a life full of Joy and freedom in Him. believe you are worth the Life God has for you. Receive the freedom He has for you. Work the Word (of God) in your life and see what God can do for you and your children.
With Love, Jessica Taylor

Life By Choice: I Was Called

Gods glory Letter nw
Written by Jessica Taylor. NIV Bible

The Call of Jeremiah
The word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” “Alas, Sovereign LORD,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.” But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD. Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” The word of the LORD came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?” “I see the branch of an almond tree,” I replied. The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” The word of the LORD came to me again: “What do you see?” “I see a pot that is boiling,” I answered. “It is tilting toward us from the north.” The LORD said to me, “From the north disaster will be poured out on all who live in the land. I am about to summon all the peoples of the northern kingdoms,” declares the LORD. “Their kings will come and set up their thrones in the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem; they will come against all her surrounding walls and against all the towns of Judah. I will pronounce my judgments on my people because of their wickedness in forsaking me,
in burning incense to other gods and in worshiping what their hands have made. “Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD.

Destroy the Wall of Hostility

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭14‬ NIV)

Hostile behavior; unfriendliness or opposition.”their hostility to all outsiders” synonyms: antagonism, unfriendliness, enmity, malevolence, malice, unkindness, rancor, venom, hatred, loathing;…

He has destroyed the wall of hostility in our families, among friends and everyone we come in contact with whether at work or at the store. Just as He destroyed the walls of Jericho when they came tumbling down so will our struggles with “others”. They are God’s lost children and we pray we will continue to a light to them and show God’a love to them. May they find rest in God’s loving arms and true freedom in His Salvation. May we know who we are in Christ and not let “others” offend or hurt us. May we walk in love. Remember even Jesus dealt with persecution. His own friends and people he had healed and helped turned against him and he died for them. He sacrificed his life so that they would have salvation. He continued to show God’s love even in the mist of being betrayed, beaten and battered. Let us not grow weary of doing good and let us keep our heads up high, because we know we are children of God. He will never let the righteous fall. We will not allow “others” to bring us down, but we will be lifted on high by The Lord. Choice to be self-controlled, we’ll tempered and unshakable in God’s plan for your life. It’s not what “others”do, feel or think, it’s knowing who you are in Christ so much so that you are untouchable by the hurts “others” try to poison you with. Stand up today and be determined to not let anyone steal your peace and joy!! Work it ladies!! Work God’s Word in your life each and every day!!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭9‬ NIV)

Unshakable and unmovable

Stay steadfast and unmovable in The Lord. Remain faithful to God in times of trouble. Strive to keep your mind turned toward The Lord and His will for your life. Keep in prayer and trust in God and continue to have hope. God is our rock! He is our sure unshakable foundation! In Him we are overcomes!! In Him we are victorious!! In Him the enemy has already been defeated!! In Him we have hope and a future!!

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” (‭Isaiah‬ ‭26‬:‭3‬ NIV)

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11-13‬ NIV)
