Lord, you DESERVE all of my praise……. Over and Over and Over and Over and Over…….
Sometimes I wish I could live in a drama free world but then I remember even the greatest warriors had to go through pain before making it to paradise. Lessons are best learned through pain. Sometimes, our visions clear only after our eyes are washed with tears. Sometimes, we have to be broken so we can be whole again. Remember: If God made the day to be perfect, He would not have invented tomorrow.
Faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep believing, the dream that you wish will come true. God knew……God knows…. nothing surprises HIM –
For ANYONE who has read a few of my posts know that besides the other RANTS that I may do from time to time – talking about being a parent – talking about politics – talking about relationships – talking about ministry – I SURELY do a great deal of blogs about who I affectionately call ym “Mommy Cakes” ……… She indeed is utterly amazing!
Blessed are the Mothers who love God, for their children shall not be ignorant of their Creator and His plans about them. Blessed are the Mothers who love the word of God, for their children shall know of the way, the truth and the life.
Blessed are the Mothers who love the house of God, for their children shall enter there and sit with them in the presence of God. Blessed are the Mothers who love to pray, for their children shall feel the power of prayer and many shall find salvation. Blessed are the Mothers who love to give to the cause of Christ, for their children shall become supporters of the Kingdom of God.
Blessed are the Mothers who love the family altar, for they shall have their reward in this world and in the world to come. Blessed are the Mothers who love to speak kind words to their neighbor’s children, for thereby they shall win other boys and girls besides their own to Jesus Christ. Blessed are the Mothers who love to be companions to their children, for they shall be called understanding Mothers.
Blessed are the Mothers who love to fight life’s battles bravely with a strong and steadfast faith in God, for their children shall know where to find strength in time of need. Blessed are the Mothers who, when they are old and gray, can look back upon memory’s wall with no regret and can say, “I brought my children up in the fear of the Lord.” Theirs are the mansions in glory.
I asked God to take my pain away. God said, No. It is not for me to take away,
but for you to give it up. I asked God to make my dying father better 5 years ago. God said, No. His spirit was whole, his body was only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience. God said, No. Patience is a by-product of tribulations, it isn’t granted, it is earned. I asked God to give me happiness. God said, No. I give you blessings, Happiness is indeed up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain in regards to my my 11 year old’s father being an absentee father and 20 year old twin kids wordly actions. God said, No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, No. You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said, No. I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.
I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me. God said…….. Ahhhh, finally you have the idea!!!!
Most people think of the phrase ROAD TRIP with their best buddies and they are going to have a ball…..which there is NOTHING wrong with that.. but when I think of road trip – I think of MY SON and driving to see him up at college… I had such a nice time with him this weekend and just being THERE with him –
I don’t know who gets happier me, his little brother or him! Nonetheless, I am elated that he knows that his mommy loves him and knows that I am here for him – This boy is my other baby he just happens to be 20 years old! Sitting around his apartment as well as running errands for me MAKES ME FEEL GOOD as his mother –
My oldest sister is just as AMAZING and my son was telling his girlfriend that he considers her as his second mother…she teared up on the sly of course…. FAMILY is just amazing ya know and I am surely grateful that God is moving His hand our way.
God heals and restores and that indeed is what God has done for my family – I am so grateful that I just think about the goodness of God and how far me and my babies have come and I just drop a few tears… I am just enjoying MY SON with all of his growth and maturity….him being away at college reminds me that he is really getting older and growing up!
Honey, I NEVER THOUGHT that I would be HAPPY to dive 3 and 1/2 hours monthly…LOL ( pray for us all please )
All I can do is say WHY??? This is soo sad, I mean seriously – The station called Oxygen is about to release this show that CLEARLY DISPLAYS how a great deal of men and women in ministry IS FAILING…………. ugggghhh – I pray that it gets cancelled.
