When we are quiet and slow down, we make space for the Lord. I am so guilty of crowding the Lord out because of my busyness (even if the busy things are good things). So, I invited the Lord to meet me. I prayed “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” (Psalm 139:23-24).
Yes, we will experience trials. There will always be something, but if we strive to plant ourselves by the living water, during the trails we will remain steadfast in His supernatural strength and will be able to conquer anything that comes our way.
Just shy of six months from when you arrived, mom and I were there to attend your graduation. How proud we were of you (and still are)! And our first hours with you confirmed something...you were more than just healed. You were transformed!
Freedom is not something that is just handed to you. You have to work and believe that you can get that peace of mind and that happiness that you've longed for, for so long. God has a good plan for your life, and He still has so much in store for you, whether you know it or not!
The only real way we will be mothers who are devoted to God with deep abiding love and fear of the Lord is to understand His love for us. When we cry out to Him, His ears perk up and He turns His face towards us. (Psalm 40) When you're having a day like you’ve woke up in the pit before you even had a chance to fall into one, He is able to place your feet on the Rock of your salvation. He doesn't leave us wandering in life, and He certainly doesn't leave us flailing in motherhood.
