I love Jesus more than life, and I mean that. I have been entrusted by God with an amazing family. A husband who I am madly in love with and our three kids! My main goal in raising them is that they will grow to know Jesus, love Him and care about the burdens of His heart.

A rather repulsive experience.

If dirty diapers gross you out, read no further.  I just had to post this most horrifying experience on the "Mom blog".  If one's misfortune brings you delight...enjoy.

Too Rich Not to Post

Hearing the voice of God

I was just pondering hearing God's voice.  I am in a season of pressing in to hear His voice more clearly.  I am also currently reading Rees Howells Intercessor.  This man is an example of one who emptied himself so utterly.  In doing so, he made room for the Spirit of God to dwell in him and work through him in amazing ways.  Once when a young Christian asked him how he knew God's voice, he said "Can't you tell your mother's voice from any other?...well I know His voice just like that."  Jn 10:4 says as a shepherd, he walks before them and the sheep follow Him because they know His voice.  Mt 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied"!  More "food" for thought:  Isa 55:1, Isa 55:2, Jn 4:14

Father,  thank you for a desire to hear your voice.  Thank you for giving me hunger for more of you!  Help me to only take on what You want me to take on so there is room for being still before You.  Help me to talk less and listen more when I'm with You.  From the place of intimacy, give me the words that sustain the weary one (Isa 50:4).  You are so good and I am so grateful for your grace and mercy in my life.  In Jesus' name.

Eliya and Simeon

I love my kids.  I don't think the patience in parenting that many moms seem to have naturally is mine; but my children are keeping me humble and at the feet of Jesus. 

My aspirations for them are different than what many mother's would aspire for their kids.  I dream far less of what they will do with their life and mostly of who they will become in Jesus for the sake of the Kingdom of God.  I greatly desire them to walk in a place of knowing the heart of God toward them and the things that are on His heart that they base all of life's decisions by that knowledge.  If in the end that means they have positions of prestige in the world or that they walk out their life in unseen ministry to God; I pray that it will all be to the glory of God. 

I blogged a little about each of them where they are in life today at the FAMILY tab.  Enjoy :)
