Time is Fleeting

“LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.”

Interlude

We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We heap up wealth, not knowing who will spend it. And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭39:4-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Manna For a Mama’s Soul

Sometimes I feel like I have NO IDEA what I’m doing as a parent.

I wonder if I’m doing too much of this or not enough of that.

Manna For a Mama's Soul

Sometimes I feel like I have NO IDEA what I’m doing as a parent.

I wonder if I’m doing too much of this or not enough of that.

Was I too firm here or too lenient there?

Are they eating the right foods?

Are they learning the right lessons?

Am I doing anything right?

Ahhhh! The list is maddening & it goes on an on.  

But God!

In the midst of the crazy thoughts swirling around in my head, God allows me to witness precious sights like this.

My toddler initiated reading time with her baby sis, & read every book she could find for her. To witness such a simple, yet endearing sight was like the Lord telling me that I’m doing just fine.

As the Holy Spirit begins to flood my mind with God’s precious promises, I am reassured. My girls will be alright because even with my minor (and major) mess-ups, He is right there.

He is right there leading and guiding, teaching and protecting, comforting and loving me and my family. He will never leave me nor forsake me, and He is my strong tower and solid rock!

On a day that I’ve been struggling with some things spiritually (Satan, you are defeated!!!), this sweet, sweet sight was like manna to this mama’s soul. It opened my eyes to the beauty of all the simple, yet marvelous things going on around me, and helped me to soak in the warm embrace of my Father’s unfailing love.

Thank you, thank you Lord. 

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’.                                                                                     Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)

BE BLESSED!!!

Your storm won’t last always!!

Psalm 57:1-3 (ESV)

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
    for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
    till the storms of destruction pass by.
I cry out to God Most High,
    to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
He will send from heaven and save me;
    he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

Psalm 107:29 (ESV)

He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.

2 Corinthians 4:17 (NLT)

For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!

As I listen to the words of this song, I am reminded of a time when I thought I had to face the storms of life all alone.  Thank goodness for my Savior and Redeemer who is with me every step of the way!!!

Even though your winds blow
I want you to know
You cause me no alarm
Cause I’m safe in His arms
Even though your rain falls
I can still make this call;
Let there be peace
Now I can say go away
I command you to move today
Because of faith I have a brand new day
The sun will shine and I will be okay
That’s what I told the storm!

 

 

BE BLESSED!!!
