2804053552804053552018-10-19Earlier this week we had much less time together before daycare. As Myles could sense the rush he was more whiny and resistive to getting dressed, packing up, etc. Instead of continuing to rush to make sure we got out of the door on time, I felt the Holy Spirit calling me to just be still and hold him close. As I did this, he quickly calmed and snuggled into the embrace. Within a few seconds, he was able to participate in and even ask for the next task we needed to accomplish.
Such a great reminder to me that while it’s important to be on time and fulfill my responsibilities outside of the home, it’s never more important then making sure my son knows that he is a top priority in my life. So give a few extra snuggles, an extra I love you, or an extra minute connecting with those you love. You won’t regret it ❤️ https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/9f6f6fce475f37ea463fb8f34b226eb0/5C86478D/t51.2885-15/e35/43040784_272658463454262_775798843109808741_n.jpg2018-10-19

2804053552804053552018-10-17Tonight, as I went into my son’s room to rock him, I couldn’t help but revel in the extra time with him. -
As he repeatedly attempts to get comfortable I ask if he wants me to lay him in his bed. My heart smiles when he says no, as I know these nights are limited. -
His little voice fills the room as he has to tell me all that is on his mind before he can drift off. Instead of shushing him, I acknowledge and confirm what he has to say. And then he slowly calms, his breath becomes heavy, and just like that he’s out. -
I can’t help but think, maybe God revels in those moments with us too. As we lay in bed, reeling through the moments of the day. The questions that go unanswered. The thoughts of if we’ve done enough. The uncertainty of relationships, finances, work, etc. But yet, instead of shushing us, God is right there listening. Experiencing the hurt and joy, the fears and hopes with us. Waiting for us to come to Him. When we are willing to sit with Him and cast all our cares onto Him, He will bring peace. A peace in knowing that tomorrow’s another day. A peace in knowing that despite our failures, doubts, insecurities, God is always working things in our life for our good. A peace that brings rest. -
Just as I sit awake watching And protecting Myles, God is also right there watching and protecting His children. Unlike me though, God doesn’t rest. He is ever present. Always at the ready to uphold us. Protect us. Forgive us. Guide us. Love us. https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/405ffd8b03eef10e907cd6970566d48e/5C88950C/t51.2885-15/e35/42918500_693146767735898_142773157507289723_n.jpg2018-10-17
8962756908962756902018-10-17In the last month the Lord has really been refocusing me. Where I used to find my identity in what others think or say or my skills and my view of myself, now I look to His Word to grow in the knowledge of His identity and who He says I am and who He has called me to be. seekGodfirstchildofGodhttps://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/b31afdca230efd17dcc8d8575954ccf5/5C5B6C47/t51.2885-15/e35/42775790_2111133455583700_8797029396801510_n.jpg2018-10-17
