Five Minute Friday

A wife, a mother, a teacher, a house keeper, a chef, a counselor, and the list of titles goes on for this busy mom.

Imagine the possibilities. Can it be that God wants me to do more? How is it possible? I’m spread so thin as it is. There’s diapers to do. Beds to make. Children to teach and train. A husband waiting so patiently all the while. Just sit, ponder, and imagine all of that then;
Yes…then.. I’m brought back to a dream.  One of ministry. One of fellowship. One of community. Is it really about me? Or HIM? Imagine God calling your name and pulling your hand like a father crossing a child across a street. It’s constant.. at times a voice so quite I can barely hear it; while, sometimes so loud it’s all I hear.
What does this all look like? How will I find balance. Imagine the fear. Anxiety. Imagine he is there through it all; the uncertainty, the hard work, all the while he is shining like a star on a clear summers night….waiting!  Imagine his smile just waiting for you to say ‘YES’!!!

    Yes! Because He is there all the while, never leaving us! He has so much more for us than we could ever imagine. Big dreams are only possible through God! Welcome to Five Minute Friday, friend!

    I wonder if momma’s imagination are almost as big as our kiddos. Trouble is we imagine all we have to do, want to do, should do, the things that could happen. And sometimes that overwhelms us and stops us, but that dream to serve Him, it is there in the bedtime prayers and the memory verses. Hold on.

    Stopping by with Five Minute Friday today, and so glad you’re listening for God’s voice. Some days it does seem that we’re spread too thin to take on one more thing, but if God’s in it, then we’ll miraculously have enough. That exercise of discernment, what is my idea vs. what is God’s plan, is tricky for me sometimes. I wish you all the best!

    Stopping by with Five Minute Friday today. I can totally relate to feeling spread too thin some days. How can I take on one more thing? But if God is in it, we will miraculously have what we need to make it happen. That process of discernment – what is my idea vs. God’s plan – is tricky for me some times. I wish you all the best as you follow God’s voice.
