Emptying Yourself Out

I heard an analogy on the radio this morning that I wanted to share with you, my friends. 

There sits in front of you two glasses of water. Both are full. Imagine one is you and the other is Jesus. You must empty the first cup of its contents to be able to fill it with the contents of the second cup. To be completely filled with Jesus in your life you need to empty yourself completely of you and ask Jesus to fill you with Himself.

Learning to Wait on God's Timing. Plus Free Printable.

I am having to pray, a lot lately, for me to be on God's time table and not my own time table. How about you?

We tend to want things fixed, right now. 

We want relationships to be healed, right now. 

We want to be better wives, right now. 

We want to be better moms, right now. 

We want certain situations to be fixed, right now. 

All in our timing. Me me me and now now now. 

God's timing is perfect

As Christian Women, Do We Need Each Other?

Christian women, I want to, just for a moment, encourage you to pursue closer friendships with each other. 

God created us to need friends. 

Life can be hard at times. God allows us to go through things that break us in order to define us, mature us, strengthen our faith, and lead us back to Jesus. 
Carry each others burdens.

The Problem with Being Supermom.

Do you ever have those moments when you feel God slap you on your hand? Disciplining you? Opening your eyes to something you are doing that isn't good for you and your relationship with Him?

I had one of those moments this morning during my devotion time with the Lord. Then it was confirmed again as I got online and came across a post by my friend at Faith Along the Way.

I never thought of myself as trying to achieve Supermom level. I work hard to be the best I can be through serving others. However, the word "Supermom" never bounced around in my head as a title I wanted to achieve.

Give unmet needs to God.

All these things can make the ugly BAD ATTITUDE monster come out of us. Yep, happens to us all. Here is my list of ways we can improve our bad attitudes on a daily basis.

Help! My Kid Hates Exercising!

I love to go on long walks. Especially now that it's getting warmer out, Let's Go! 

Walking is probably my favorite form of exercise. I enjoy being outdoors, in nature, breathing in all the fresh air, taking in the view. Perfection! 

Walking with my kids is sometimes hard to do, especially if they do not want to walk. My little one is 6 years old and will still ask to be held when he starts to get bored or just tired of walking.

This is What it Means to be Loved.

Biblical truths about God's love for us all. 

The world is quick to tell us who we are, what we are not or that we don't measure up, but the Bible tells us we are loved. LOVED! Open the Bible and search for yourself. Find out who you are in Christ. Know God's word for yourself. Apply it to your life. Speak it over yourself and your loved ones. It is life transforming when we know, speak and trust in God's word. 

This is what it means to be loved... 

This is What It Means to be Loved by Jesus.
