This year Will and I just want to focus on Jesus. We don’t want to get to the end of the year without knowing more about who God is. Actually, I don’t want to get to the end of my life: and not really know who God is!
So, we put the TV in the shed! I’ve deleted my Facebook. Well technically, it is deactivated for 30 days and then they delete it. But you get the point. It’s only been a few days, and I feel more peaceful. More able to listen to God’s little promptings. And because I am less distracted by technology, I’m going to bed on time. Then I’m waking up earlier, and spending the quality time with God that I need. How quickly I can see that little changes are making a big difference.
You see, I want to live a life of faith! I really do want to live a life that pleases God. I want to stand before my creator and Heavenly Father one day and hear the words: “well done, good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:23)
My question is: “What does it look like to be a Christian wife and mum of little children?” Or big children…
If I really put God first in my life and chased after Him like He was the most valuable person in my life; how would my life look?
I have lots of friends that I admire and are full of faith. I have friends that love God and are consistently trying to love Him more. But, when I hear women preachers who inspire Me, I’ve somehow missed the messages about motherhood and faith. About seeking God in the middle of nappy changes and morning routines. I want to be inspired! I want to see God’s heart for mums. I want to see how God can transform a home: from the parents, through to the children. I want to see the possibilities! I want to live out the possibilities in my own life!!!
Don’t you???? Don’t you want to know what your life would look like if God was the focus of your day? Don’t you want to see what God could do if you gave Him your attention and “Yes”? I think it would be amazing….I think we would be filled with joy and wonder.
I think when we say “Yes” to God, that’s when life becomes more interesting. 😊😄❤❤❤❤
Currently, I am getting up at 5.20am. I get about an hour of reading my bible time and prayer. Then my girls start coming into the lounge room at 6.30am.
They must eat immediately…because they are apparently starving!!!!😆😆😂
Then the day begins…
And I do try to keep Jesus in my mind during the day. I play worship music, and my girls sing with more passion than my ears would like! (But it’s super cute!)
I definitely send quick prayers up to God throughout the day: “Lord! Please help me to not loose my temper! But I can’t work under these conditions! 😆🤣😂” (usually as my 7 year old rolls her eyes at me after I serve lunch or ask her to clean up a mess…that she’s made!)
But….I want More! There has to be More! That’s what I’m asking God for this year: more.
More time with Him. The ability to hear His voice more. My hunger for Him. More passion to teach my girls about Him. I want to stop saying things that would hurt His heart. I want to stop doing things that would grieve Jesus. I want to be different. To live a life with no regrets.
I want to wake up with Jesus on my heart and go to sleep knowing that despite the chaos of my day: I loved God to the best of my ability.
And then I want to be ready. Ready to see what God can do with my decision to Trust Him. And I want my girls to see what miracles God can do when we are willing to be obedient.
“Lord, let me be faithful with the little things. Then, let me be faithful with the bigger things.”
Love always Kelly xx
