Family + Faith + Encouragement
Those times when it is 2 o'clock in the morning and you are wide awake and can't sleep and you're fighting your own thoughts and your responsibilities as a mom weigh heavy, that's when Jesus is calling you.
"Letters from Heaven" is a new series that is meant to encourage and inspire.
You feel overwhelmed with all I call you to do. Being a mom is a challenge every minute. You worry to much. Your sick baby is my baby too. Your toddler, your child, your teenager, they are all mine too. The responsibility to raise these souls and nurture them weighs heavy. You worry if you've done enough to raise them to their greatest potential. I Am enough. As you accept your weakness and faults, accept my power. You will falter and fail. You will make mistakes but it's during those times that you allow Me to help most. You fall and look up. Tonight, you feel the heaviness of motherhood as I call you to a bigger purpose outside your four walls, your comfort zone.
Your discouragement is natural because of your focus on your limited abilities instead of my limitless power. Remember, I sent my Son for you and He is with you always. If I'll give you Christ and a Helper, what more do you need? You only need to spend moments in My Presence to recharge and set yourself up right again. Your neediness for Me is what I crave as I desire to spend time with my daughter as she grows, just as you do your own children. I never get tired of being with you. My power is always available and flows through you. It is the very reason you can meet the needs and show the love that you do.
Stay focused, the evil one will distract you. It's his plan to keep you from My perfect plan for you. Be aware of your distractions. You have have everything you need and need not go searching elsewhere. You have abundance within you even when you fail, fall, misstep, or falter. You question the technicalities of our relationship to often. You simple, heartfelt prayers are cherished, I adore them. I wish you would not wait until it's hard to speak to Me. Instead, come to me continuously, let Me speak to you. Open yourself and I will flood you with all that you need. Strength, encouragement, praise, love, knowledge and much more, flow like a river and never dries up.
You feel you are on a steep, rocky path at times. That only means I am taking you higher. Just keep your eyes on me.
Your purpose is important. Jesus dried up the fig tree with a few simple words, a thought, belief, and power. Everyone was shocked. The tree wasn't producing fruit, it was not serving its purpose to its greatest potential as other trees do naturally. Stay focused on Me and I will continue to keep you with your purpose. Habakkuk 3:17-19 Rejoice when you feel you have nothing left to give. Jude 1:24-25 Seek Me to keep you clean and atoned forever so that we may spend many moments together so that I can refresh you. Philippians 4:7 Seek My Son, Jesus, daily, He is always there, call on Him, the Spirit, and My angel armies. I will give you peace so pure you can not deny it is from Me, a supernatural peace.
Isaiah 17:4-6 You will be fruitful because you seek Me. Far too few of my beloved children produce fruit. I will harvest your fruits and it will be good. It will be in such abundance that gleanings and fruit will remain even after the harvest for future planters. Your fruits will multiply for those who lean into Me.
