it would only be fitting that my very first blog entry would be the Facebook post from 8.22.14 that started it all 🙂 enjoy, and welcome to My Titus 2 Life!!
I have a passion for motherhood. No matter if you work outside the home, or clock in at your kitchen island every morning, we’re all here to do the same work. God placed something in my spirit that I will be sharing soon on my blog, but He has continued to build on that word weekly. Today He stopped me in my tracks with a powerful nugget!
We as mothers, have got to be in the word daily. Not just a 5 minute devotional (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but eye ball deep in the word, relishing in his commandments, instructions, and words of affirmation that have been penned so beautifully for each minivan mom. If you’re a mommy, mommy to be, grand mommy, or auntie that serves the role as a mommy to someone and you have not submerged yourself is his Holy word you are selling your self, your children, and your marriage short. Don’t think that there isn’t something powerful for you in the Bible when you’re feeling overwhelmed by laundry, a pile of unopened mail on your kitchen island, little people hanging off you begging for a bowl of goldfish. He has crafted something for every single mommy situation you could think of. It was written just for YOU! Yes YOU in those yoga pants, with your coffee cup in hand, and messy bun that sits atop your head. So stay encouraged mommies!! You’re doing a great job, you’re not unnoticed, they DO appreciate the crockpot lasagne, and clean underwear in their drawer. Get that Bible app and read it in the car line, open up those silver trimmed pages at night after you’ve tucked in the last little one, and read it for yourself that your are LOVED, God has not forgotten about you, His arms are around you as you fold those Thomas the train bed sheets and Doc McStuffin pajamas. Open your Bible, feed yourself that word, for you my dear are doing the hardest job on they planet. If anyone should be in desperation for His word, Its the mothers. You NEED it.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
