It’s just one of those days … these kiddos are up, ready and setting their day in action with play and energy “OH MY”! On the other hand I’m up trying to see which way to go … the reality of it is that it gets like that sometimes, they are ready and we are not but we have to grasp the moment and set ourselves in order to do the job that must be done. I entitled this Ready, Set, Restart because of those days and moments when we aren’t as ready for the day as our youngins! When we aren’t feeling ready we have to fix and find ourselves as moms taking a moment to pray and or just resetting in away that will be helpful!
Today has been one of those days that my boys are full of so much life, but I feel quite hopeless, it could be pregnant emotions or just the fact of waking up not ready to conquer the world like the super hero mom that is expected of me!
One thing I love to do is find encouragement through scripture and prayer. That’s my personal way of restarting and resetting. This morning as I began our daily routine of things I took time to read the word, and as always I found some great reading in it. When I read scriptures I love to read through categories, so i’ll type in (scriptures about ____) this morning was (scriptures about starting the day). While reading I read a very familiar scripture which is one that comes up any time I look up specific categories, it is also a scripture that we can relate to in any part of our lives and that scripture is Jeremiah 29:11-12 which states
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.”
God knows our days each and every day. He knows what it will be like when we wake each day not knowing what it will be like. He has an expected end for us, a good end, and by the time we reflect back we can see what he saw before we grasped the moment. As we go on in our everyday daily lives as moms, wives, entrepreneurs, sisters, and friends it’s ok to have a moment, it’s ok to take a moment, and it’s ok to recognize the feeling and fight back with strength that we don’t feel is quite there. Some days are going to be better than others, but everyday is a day for great smiles and abundance of joy. You are Strong, Courageous, Beautiful, and you are made for purpose!
I come to you as humble as I know how with my heart, mind, body and soul. Father I come to you on behalf of moms today those who are married and those who are single! Father I pray that you will cause each and everyone of them all around the world to find joy in their day, when they wake up each morning help them to feel like they are more than conquerors, father I ask the you will order their steps in and through your word, and if they don’t know your word cause them to meet someone who can share it with them. Father in you there is hope, in you there is fullness or joy, and in you all things are possible. Sometimes we began to feel other ways outside of what you have ordained but I pray that we will lift our voices and open our mouths speaking life immediately that our hearts will be filled with pure gladness. The jobs you have given us are good, and even when we don’t feel super we are extraordinary. Thank you so much now for your love, grace, and mercy and I pray that you will go see about my sister near and far now In Jesus Name Amen!
