Life as a stay at home mom is hard work. As I write this, my son is currently hugging my neck a little too tightly while making fart noises on my cheeks. I must say that it is rather cute but I find it annoying trying to focus. As usual, life consists mostly of multi-tasking trying to maintain my composure and patience with my three year old son. Did I mention that I am also 27 weeks pregnant? I am expecting our first baby girl and I am so excited! This is the main reason for not posting as much on our Praying Moms for Christ website and social media pages (please forgive me).
I am writing to share more about this new season I have entered in hopes to shed some light on how things are going with me. There has been a lot of changes taking place. Today, I find myself in an entirely different season which I call a season of stillness. This new season is unlike any other I’ve experienced. Some changes that have taken place included trying to conceive, selling our first home, and moving away from everything familiar, including my friends and family. I am an official Texan now!
Since our Undefeated Conference which took place last September in Gallup, NM, there have been many moments of uncertainty but God saw my family and I through every time! My season of stillness did not come until after I had to endure some fiery trials yet I remain undefeated, hallelujah! I wish I could tell it all but I am working on another project to share another time.
The Lord has me in a season of stillness where I am waiting concerning the ministry. He is renewing my strength and causing me to mount up with wings like the eagles (Isaiah 40:31). I believe He will give me the wisdom, people, and plans as I continue to seek Him (Psalm 119:133). So stay tuned!
While I am in my third trimester I am getting things ready for baby’s arrival. I plan to house hunt this fall and possibly prepare for another small move. I am fully content with the stillness, that is, basking in the peace of God and trusting in His daily plans for me, my family, and this ministry. With that, I want to encourage you. No matter what season you find yourself in, confess the word of God. His word is the seed that produces the kingdom in your life! I am telling you, there’s no substitute for confessing the word of God. For me, miracles are taking place and it is amazing to me how much power resides in His word!
Proverbs 40:20-27 says,
My (daughter), attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
I testify in saying that God is a good Father. He wants to give you the desires of your heart. He wants to bless you and take you places you’ve never dreamed. Don’t give up seeking, asking, and knocking for what you want God to do (Matthew 7:7-8). Often times, His plans are better than our own (Isaiah 55:8-9). You too, can have a season of stillness in the midst of chaos. Like Jesus, you can have peace in the middle of the storm.
I found my peace. It’s when I whisper His name. It’s when I cry quiet tears when I have no words. It’s when I take the communion cup and bread in my home. It’s when I hear and confess His word throughout the day. It’s when I journal. I can’t get enough of His presence! He is my Prince of Peace! His peace comes when I align my will with His will. Please know that I have not forgotten you all who have been apart of this amazing journey and ministry. I can’t wait to see what’s in store. Thank you all for your continued prayers and encouragement.
In His Love,
