Valentine’s Day is for giving, right? Join me today over at my friend’s Karen Ehman’s blog where I am giving away a special Valentine’s gift for the girl in your life!
I am so sorry my link on Wednesday didn’t work! For the free resources on dating and boundaries, just click on “freebies” on my site: www.LynnCowell.com.
Sitting down to have my normal time with Jesus, I needed some “extra”. Life can be hard for us mamas. I wrote in my journal “Jesus, water me. Fill me up; I’m doing a lot of pouring!” That’s what mamas do…we pour.
Sensing that my “normal” wasn’t going to cut it, I had the thought to listen to a sermon. I had already had three people tell me that I needed this sermon. It was the day to do it.
The preacher: Jentezen Franklin.
Location: Elevation Church Code Orange Revival
Let me just say: I got filled.
Be sure to listen for yourself!
Pastor Franklin poured hope into this mom by reminding me that God listens to the prayers of a mom, not just for this generation, but for the ones to follow. Luke 1:50 reminds us “His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.”
I believe that you are a mom who fears him. You are a mom who wants to be a stepping stone for your child and not a stumbling block. You are a mom who wants her children to honor God because of your influence and not inspite of it.
Honoring God can be something that from this generation forward is is in our family’s genes; whether we are carrying it out or it is beginning with us.
Don’t be discouraged, friend, if you have a prodigal or a child who is numb to God. God loves the prodigal. He hears your prayers. He sees you fasting. He is watching you living out truth in front of your family. He will not forget; he is faithful.
