I know we all have heavy hearts right now. I hope this content helps draw your hearts to Jesus.
My daughter was “invading” my time – that quiet, peaceful space early in the morning when I spend time with the Lord while everyone is asleep.
She tiptoed into the sunroom after not being able to sleep. My first instinct was to keep it as my time.
But, the Lord impressed upon my heart, that life together, walking together, teaching our kids through moments like these … this is motherhood.
It’s not just about me.
So my daughter did her devotional, while I read my Bible. And we shared that sweet time in the sunroom together.
While it’s completely okay to have our own time as it restores us (I sure need it), we should be sensitive to transforming moments we can spend with our kids.
Sitting there together, seeking after Jesus together, was beautiful.
Hearing her sweet voice ask what a verse means and getting to talk about it with each other was water to my soul.
This is motherhood.
I’m so glad that I made room for her to join me.
It was a sweet time I will always remember.
Let’s enjoy the moments we have to ourselves and those small moments we get to teach our kids what it means to follow Jesus.
Because this is motherhood.
“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6
After teaching at an inner-city school focused on racial reconciliation and being a part of an intercultural reconciliation program in Central America, I saw the difference relationships and conversation make. Bottom line, relationships make a difference.
Let’s share and discuss these truths with our kiddos so we can have a view and heart that reflects more of Jesus.
