Of coarse here I am at 12:49am and everyone is sound a sleep. That is except for my hubby who is snoring like a race horse. Kid’s are tucked away not making a peep and here I am wide awake, go figure. Why do I do this? I have a million things running in my mind and I have a craving for coffee. Eeek!! Coffee not a good idea right now. Baby took no nap today so I’m sure she will be asleep all night, in Jesus name. So have you ever had a great day with everything wonderful then boom a situation of doom burst in and bust your bubble? I did… Today, wait yesterday (forgot it’s past 12am) I did my blog post and everything was fabulous, fed baby lunch and we did worship super loud. We had a blast of giggles. Hubby came home for lunch and we were enjoying a pleasant conversation, when he says “wait who’s here?” With this fearful look (I was scared) he said “who turned the hall light off?” I looked around slowly and “Oh great”… Can you guess what happened? Yup, it was lights out. Seriously! what a joy killer over load. Now two things could happen, the famous blame game or the challenging tongue tamer.
Oh boy, oh boy, was this a moment the enemy loves. He loves to bring chaos and sabotage God’s joy and laughter. But we have the upper hand ladies!! We totally got this! PRAYER… God just waits right at the corner for us to give him the go to show his mighty power. When we turn the situation over to God he can blow our minds with unbelievable blessings, favor and make the impossible possible. When the nitty gets gritty show that devil who’s boss and work God’s Word!
I have to admit for minute I felt a melt down coming when I was alone. Then back to reality I had to lay that stinken devil on his face and steer my gear in the right direction. And then remind my hubby not to worry it’ll all work out. But don’t tell him I almost had my melt down right before he texted me. Haha!!! We got everything squared away and lights back on in a couple of hours. Everything was back to its scheduled routine. By the time kids got home everything was completely normal, umm… well our norm at least. After homework and such we headed to an amazing worship service where the anointing was on fire! What a great way back to fabulousness. God is so good!!!
God’s Word for Mom:
Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality. Romans 12:11-12
Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders— he’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out. He’ll never let good people topple into ruin. Psalm 55:22
My help and glory are in God —granite-strength and safe-harbor-God— So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him. God is a safe place to be. Psalm 62:7-8
A Whisper to God:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I know full well that you are Lord over my life. I put my complete trust in you and know you will see me through any trial that comes my way. Thank you Lord for always looking at my best interest and never letting me fall. I pray that you will lead me and guide me to make wise choices and help me to stay focused on the straight and narrow path you have set before me. Thank you Lord for the best is yet to come, because greater is He that is in me that he that is in the world. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
