My week has been off to a rough start. A virus for me and my little one over the weekend. We’re still trying to get the hang of school and schedules and enough sleep. Sometimes a blog seems the least of my worries to keep up with.
But I hope this place is more than just a blog. I hope it’s a place that encourages you to wrestle with what being a mama looks like to you. I hope it’s an ear, if you need one, for you to share what’s going well and what really just stinks. Whether you’re a mama or not I hope it’s a place for you to wrestle with your purpose. And ultimately, no matter what type of mama you are, I hope it’s a place to come to Jesus. A place to be reminded that he sees you. A holy ground for bringing children to and trusting that he is big enough for all of your questions and fears, mistakes and hopes.
This week as children have tackled firsts and our babies are transforming before our very eyes let’s bring them to Jesus, once again.
Proverbs 3:5-6 has been on my mind recently, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Heavenly Father, as mom’s we want to trust you with our children, to lean not on our own understanding but on your great wisdom as we parent. And as we do may we set the example for our children as they grow. The example of a life submitted to and relying on your great wise heart. Stretch out a straight path before our children Lord, one that leads directly to you. This school year will you lead them in truth, drawing their hearts closer to you, directing their paths. We trust you and thank you for your faithfulness to our kids. Amen.
So what firsts are your kids up to that are just blowing you away?!
