"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us."
2 Corinthians 4:7 NIV

A Mother's Prayers

I've missed blogging. I hope once I adapt to my new schedule I'll find time to fit it in again.

This won't take long. (to write or read.) I had to share this video with you. My daughter tagged me on facebook and I saw it this morning at the gym.

How many times have you seen a woman at the gym watching a video on her iPhone with tears streaming down her face?

Well that was me this morning!

Here's why.

The note next to her video post read:

Well, momma's prayers are being answered. the Lord has really been tugging on my heart lately. wrote this song tonight.. still needs a lot of work, but it's definitely the cry of my heart. i hope it touches yours.

Memory Verse Monday

My husband and I have been in business together for over 20 years. We own Bryant Digital Media and get to do all kinds of creative work like making commercials, designing websites and producing DVD’s.

But the past two years have been a real struggle. Everything you’ve been hearing on the news about the plight of small business owners in this economy is true.

But that’s okay, because the Lord has a new assignment for me.

Starting tomorrow I will be working two jobs. I will continue in my long-standing capacity at my husband’s company, and I will begin a new 
full time job as a writer for Children’s Hospital of Central California.

I go from working side-by-side my husband and a little band of amazing subcontractors—and no one else—to working for one of the largest employers in Central California.

Life is about to change!

Is it any wonder the Lord brought this wonderful verse to mind?

Memory Verse Monday

Okay, so it’s not Monday.

I missed posting a memory verse earlier this week, and this particular verse has been chasing me ever since.

I taught from this little passage of Scripture for 50 minutes last Wednesday night. 

In other words, today’s memory verse has a whole lot to say!

I know God called me to teach from Proverbs 3:5-6 because I needed to be reminded of the things this verse says so succinctly.

  1. Make a conscious decision to trust God
  2. Trust Him when He doesn’t make sense
  3. Surrender fully to Him because He is God and I am not

If I will do that, if I will

  1. Trust in the LORD with all my heart
  2. Lean not on my own understanding
  3. Acknowledge Him in all my ways

Then He has promised to make my paths straight.

I’m keeping the “if/then” promise contained in these verses ever before me.

Hopefully next week I’ll find the time blog about the other two things God has been hitting me over the head with. (I can’t hold these truths in for much longer.)

For several weeks now, every minute of my day has been filled to maximum capacity. (Hence the trickles of oil flowing from this jar and onto this blog lately.)

But I have much I can’t wait to share. (Oh how I wish there were 48 hours in each day!)

In the meantime—as the hours rush by from dawn to dusk—I’ll be trusting in the LORD wholeheartedly.
