Some Thoughts

Here are just a couple thoughts from this morning:

-First of all, I love that Morgan is desiring to have her own "quite time" right along with mommy.
She does my heart good.

-As I was reading in Hebrews again, 4 times I read,
"Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart." WOW! Do you think HE may want to tell me something today?! I tell you what - I'm sure listening and my heart is OPEN!

-Hebrews 3:13 - "Encourage one another daily, as long as it's called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sins deceitfulness." What a thought...seriously...here I am, going through one of the toughest times in life so far...just waiting for someone to encourage me. Ummm...HELLO! Instead of me feeling like I need some encouragement, I should be encouraging others! That way, we'll both be encouraged. That's the way God intended it to be.

-Hebrews 4:16 - "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Why try to do anything on our own? God promises that he will never leave us. He is there to help us, all we have to do is ASK! How many of you have children? Isn't it the same way? We see them struggling to do something, and we want to help them so badly, but they won't help us. And, if they aren't ready for our help, they just get upset because they want to do it on their own. All the while, we are seeing that if they would only accept our help, life would be so much easier for them. I'm so thankful that I have a God who is personal and is waiting and wanting to be a part of my every moment life.

Thanks for sharing this Renee... it's encouraging to me! It is also a good challenge to be a role model as a mom to let our kids see us (and participate!) in our times with God. Thanks again. :)
