For anyone who is feeling tired (ok, so you didn’t work out today), in need of grace (because even as moms, we blow it), longing to respond to circumstances in truth and with integrity (as we are often led by our emotions, feel pulled in the direction of what the world says we should be or swayed by the opinions of others), fighting for focus (we are sometimes scattered or distracted) and needing strength (we are at times, simply put, weak), God guarantees our success in all areas.  “My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law. I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws.” Psalm 119:29-30

Oh mom, mothering is hard work. Where are you needing rest today? God really does want to partner with you and guide you in the journey. Look to Him and He will give you what you need to take the right steps.  Steps taken in His might, not your own. He is right beside you.

Where are you needing to depend on God today? One area at a time, one step at a time.

Keeping Your Word, Maintaining Integrity

Blah, blah, blah, talk, talk, talk…we all speak many words, don’t we, moms? Being reliable and staying true to our words and promises are key. What are you teaching your children about keeping his/her word? Following through and doing what we say we are going to do in all our relationships  builds confidence, security, trust, character and dependability in both you and your child. Just as God has kept His promises (“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man that he should change his mind,” Numbers 23:19), let us keep ours and be women of integrity–we have a great model to follow! “And now, LORD God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house.” 2Sam 7:25 God always keeps His promises. How are your words and intentions shaping your relationships?http://lindawriteson.com/wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=1294&type=image&TB_iframe=1
