Monday Mama Motivation: Pray, Play & Provide

“Invest in being at home”
{taken from my Morning Devotional }

Now, by faith, I stay at home more often than I might naturally choose, keeping my home, trusting God to bless my obedience. Oh, I’m not home at all the time, but I am there much more than I was! And there are many blessings!

When I’m home, I’m spending less money. I’m also eating fewer calories and saving the time it takes to go somewhere in the car. The ultimate bonus, though – and God knew this would be the case – has been the sense of well-being I’ve experienced. I can see that all is well at home, that everything is under control.

Wisdom is in the sight of him who has understanding, but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
Proverbs 17:24

Be home more often…..The wise woman realizes the value of being home. But the foolish woman {which is what I was} is always looking “out there” {in the mall, in the outlet stores, in a friend’s home, in coffee house, etc.} for fulfillment, excitement, activity, and meaning.

Whatever my “work” is, my husband and children and home will always be a higher priority and more important to me. My work, my ministry, is farther down the list of God’s priorities for me…. Near the top is a home-lover, a homemaker.

I loved these encouragements from the devotion, about 4 days worth. This is where my heart is right now…being at home with my family. And I'm not saying I don't go anywhere. I do but it is very, very limited, maybe one thing a month.  And if your in this place were you feel disconnected to your home and if there is something or someone that is causing you to always be out of your home then take it to the Lord.  Ask Him if this is something that you need to step away from. It’s something I had to learn the hard way, I was that lady that was foolish and was seeking fulfillment in things other than my home. But I found out that those "other things " were not what the Lord has for me right now.  He revealed that to me and it has been a blessing.

Now I that I am working, which means my time with my family is even more limited and precious and of more importance than anything else. My time is very limited with them, I really need to make that time count. Even when I don’t want to, trust me there are times when I come home and my body and mind is dead tired. It’s in those times that I have to ask the Lord for His strength. And He gives it to me, last week I had the opportunity to ask for His strength. I was tired and weary and my little punkin’ wanted to do a craft with her. I didn’t have it in me, not that I didn’t want to it was just bad timing, I was tired from the day at work} and I was getting grouchy {can you relate to that?} And I was just like "God please I need your strength right now your joy!". And you know what He provided that for me. We ended up having a blessed time and her heart was so joyful. It was worth every minute of it. Don't miss out on those blessings for those things that are temporary. Our kids we have on loan, from the Lord. It's never to late to start.

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!!!
