It has been an amazing week…God has showed me allot in the GMG bible study this week. I was refreshed, enlighten and just so blessed by what my sisters shared with me as well. I had some things I was dealing with at the beginning of this week but by Friday God had totally did a work. when we are drawing closer to Him He is working in us.
The time we spend with Him should far exceed anything else we do. It should and needs to be our first priority. Now granted, I know us mommies have pressing issues like a hungry infant or toddlers. For me I have to carve out that time in the morning, even if it’s sacrificing extra time before they all wake up. It never fails, when I do that my day is blessed. And not to say it doesn’t have it’s trials, but I am less likely to act out in my flesh once I fill myself with Him.
This week I learned more about forgiveness, what faith looks like, how faith is cleansing, Jesus’ coming. Forgiveness I can honestly say is one I struggle with at times. Sometimes is easier, and sometimes it’s really not. I was reminded that forgiveness is best for me and those I love. Trials and offenses and anything else that causes you to have forgiveness towards another is part of our growth. It draws us closer to Him, it reminds us of what Jesus has done for us. It’s the least we could do in return. Forgiveness is humbling, it brings us to our knees. Forgiving grows us, it strengthens us, it’s all part of the pruning process.
I also wanted to share this video with you….it was funny I heard it this week and it was perfect.
This week I was reminded of my faith, and just having faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains. I had some mountains this week, and that small faith that I had removed them. God is good and He is faithful! Also I was reminded that we are to humble ourselves when serving God, and not accept an award, thank you or a pat on the back. I love what Matthew Henry’s commentary said
