Show Me The Love - Leaning on the Promises of God for Moms

Show Me the Love

Motherhood is such a demanding call, and we have so many tasks to complete. But all of our work will be in vain if we do not seek to show the children in our home the reality of God’s joy, love, creativity, and life.

Our view of God is reflected in how we live life in front of our children each day.

God is the author of all creation, including waterfalls, roses, puppy dogs, lightning storms, color, sound, food, and all delights. He designed and gave us the instinct to giggle and belly laugh; to sway and swirl with the sounds of vibrant music; to delight in the galaxies aglow on a summer’s night; to touch, kiss, hug, and love; to work and bring color, beauty, and skill into the presentation of a garden; to write a story; to set a beautiful table; to cook a meal that delights the palate; to nurse the ill back to health; and so much more. Our lives should reflect this greatness of God, this joie de vivre, through the ways we face and celebrate life each day.

Instead of gluing our faces to a screen, instead of focusing on the drudgery of the everyday, let’s look deeply into the eyes of these creatures of God living in our home, see inside their hearts, and affirm the beauty we find there.

His Promises

Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.

John 16:24

I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!

You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.

1 Peter 1:8-9
