Thought for the day. Played my mean momma card yesterday & made kids help around the house some. You would have thought they were being tortured the way they were acting. Yes…they are spoiled & we are working on it…but that’s a whole other thought for a different day. Now I’m not saying that they should have enjoyed it because I guess when it boils down to it, I don’t enjoy the actual cleaning. The difference is, I know that once I’m done, I will thoroughly enjoy & appreciate a clean house. The girls haven’t quite gotten to the point yet where they look ahead to the benefits of hard work. Being a Christian is hard work. In fact, when we’re faced daily with challenges from Satan through the world, our family, our friends, even other Christians…we realize that it’s possibly the hardest thing we’ve ever done. It gets much easier as we grow as Christians & start realizing that God is always with us waiting for us to ask for His help. But learning to discipline ourselves to go to Him first with a problem rather than making Him our last resort is easier said than done. But we do it because we know that the reward at the end is greater than anything we could ever imagine. It’s not just a clean-house reward. It’s a life…cleaned and maintained by God…..forever!

I'm a busy mom, submerged in chaos but infused by the saving grace of God. And while some days it feels like I am hanging on by a thread, I know that everything will always be ok as long as the thread that I'm hanging onto is His. Matthew 9:21-22 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour. View all posts by Tonivandewiele
