Monday Mama Motivation: Pray, Play & Provide

Encouragement for Moms: Providing

{taken from my morning calendar devotions}

What is the worst task on your to-do list? Do it first and you’ll keep that heavy cloud of dread from hanging over you all day long…..And once that worst is done, your attitude will be greatly improved and you’ll have more energy for the tasks that remain.”

“Weaving a tapestry of beauty in our home also calls for action. To successfully make the home of my dreams and God’s call a reality, I have to be there, working and weaving on it every day. I have to plan the picture and select the colors, threads and textures. I have to know what I want the finished tapestry to look like, and I have to pay attention to details along the way.”

I love the tip aboutdoing the daunting task first and once you do that first your attitude will be greatly improved. Hmmm…..I am going to try that. I am encouraged by the part that says “ to successfully make the home of my dreams and God’s call a reality, I have to be there, working and weaving on it every day. I know that this can be hard for some of us, I am struggling in this area in this season of my life. I just need to focus more on the Lord and less on my circumstances at hand.

Father, I pray for every mom out there that you’ve called to be a Mom. Would you give and provide for their every need today. Weither it be grace, mercy, love, strength, patience, long-suffering, gentlesness, kindness, goodness {all the fruits of the spirit}. You know their every need, their cries of their heart. Bless them right now exactly where they are at, give them the strength and grace for today. Lord not our will but thine be done, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray AMEN.

Last week my sweet friend blessed me with this poem taken from Lessons from Ivy {click here}
Lord you are welcome in my home and my heart today.
Help me seek You first.
In the beauty of my family, You are welcome.
In the mess of my heart, You are welcome.
You are welcome when I am overwhelmed.
You are welcome when I am at peace.
Lord help us open our hearts today to You.

I thought it fit perfectly for this post. Ladies please know that you are not alone in this walk of motherhood, and remember to count your blessings, be thankful for things that you do have {good and bad}.

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
