During the morning with having three girls, I often deal with three personalities, my oldest daughter is one of order in the morning she double checks to make sure she has everything in order. In addition my oldest daughter sounds as though she has been woke for hours, only getting up a few minutes prior. My middle child on the other hand is completely different she is the one that prefers not to be bothered, in fact if I don’t continue to go in her room to wake her up she will lay in her bed, like a log refusing to be moved.
Then there is my youngest daughter, who is not by no surprise a morning person ,as I drag her out of bed ,she then begins her morning ritual of whining ,as well as complaining about every little thing. First it’s the clothes she doesn’t want to wear that morning, then it’s the breakfast snack she needs right now. Ironically I have had the luxury of witnessing these rituals of love by my children every single morning thus far.
Saturday and Sunday are the only days, that I have the opportunity to go into each one of my children’s rooms to look at them as they sleep. My prayer as a mother is that they continue to stay protected by God ,as well as the angels that he has assigned to keep charge over each of them.
For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;
I know that it isn’t me keeping their minds as well as physical bodies intact, instead it is almighty God.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
Yesterday evening my youngest daughter who is four made the most honorable comment “ Jesus takes care of me” . I to was reminded that although God has placed me in the position of being a mother to my girl’s overall he is our provider( Jehovah Jireh). It is God that provides strength to me, so that I can provide that same strength in return towards my girls.
2 “The LORD is my strength and my defense[a];
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
Today I want for you think about who God has place in your life as live motivators. What people are in your life now that help keep you going ,as well as encourage you to be a better person? In addition to those people, allow yourself to come to the realization that it is God that is the biggest motivator of them all. God has a way of using the relationships around us to strengthen us as well as challenge us to greater heights.
When we look at the relationships around Jesus, we can see how those people played a great role in creating the vivid parables in the bible we are still learning from today. Allow those individuals that God has placed around you to teach you as well as propel you to even greater heights.
