Everyday, I taste something that is sweet, something that makes me want more. Everyday as I receive my portion of manna from my Father's hand, it's exactly what my soul needs to press on and to press in closer to my Heavenly Prince.
|Sunrise at our house...every morning He rises anew in my heart. I am honored that Christ|
can take my life and fill it with His love all day in reaching my little family
and any others I meet.:)
Recently I was at a Christian woman's seminar and I heard testimonies from formerly abused woman. I saw their glowing faces, I saw their completeness, in Christ even though they were robbed from as John10:10 says, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." I saw their abundance of life and I wept. They had years of pain and suffering and yet now their life was restored in Christ! They testify of healing. I see their inner strength shining through.....you know, the kind that only comes from being in the healing sweet Presence our our King. It was all so beautiful and I wept... I didn't quite realize what was happening to me. It's been two months now and I see it clearer...I had specific needs in my heart and I fully surrendered myself that weekend to let God flood my soul with His spotlight...not fully understanding it but in childlike faith reaching for something greater, I realize now, I died to myself and now am more fully alive in Jesus Christ! His mercies are new every day and I can't keep from smiling.:)

Our life as women in Christ can really be the most precious and soul touching journey. Even weeping tears of sadness as we ache with what causes the Father's heart to ache is an honor. To truly be a part of who He is...it's amazing!!! These are busy years. And all the more, it's so important to spend time in the Word of God and prayer. I'm a mommy and a homeschooling one, I know how busy life is and we are too busy and our role too important to not spend time with God. We have been given an amazing gift in motherhood and the awesome responsibility to raise Godly families. Getting up earlier is actually one of the biggest blessings I know. It's not depravity....it's an opportunity to spiritually dress for the day. With the cleansing of the Word and the choicest of Spiritual clothing...Wow...without it, it's like stumbling through the day all sleepy and still in pj's, trying to run an energetic household and all the duties it demands. But the quiet morning hours prepare not only my body for the day, but my very soul. And don't get me wrong, I'm not super human, it's hard to get out of our warm bed, but oh the reward is plentiful many times over!
