The initial intent was to write about allowing the Holy Spirit to work through us and not doing it ourselves to get the glory but allow God to receive it all. My heart this year would like to focus in on encouraging parents and their daily struggles. Trying to be the best mom or dad even when you feel like running away. To be honest, my life needs more order but I believe that the Holy Spirit is working on me and it’s a process. For moms, the well can sometimes get dry and we experience fatigue, stress, and for me overeating. It may look different for others. Staying connected to the Vine is crucial and I pray that we can all be encouraged to seek God, rest in Him, read His word and pray. Jesus did all the work we just have to let go and allow Him to carry the baggage, so life won’t weight us down.
If you have no idea what I am talking about Jesus is the Vine and He died to save us many years ago. It’s not until we accept him into our hearts will we experience His love and strength. Romans 10:9-10 says “that if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” Be encourage this week, that you are a good mom or dad and rely on God’s supernatural strength instead of natural strength. I love you all!
