Take delight in Him and His great love.
by VANESSA WHITE
I’m learning to work with delight, it’s rather easy to work with a bad attitude. It’s easy to see where I wish I could be. This job, called Motherhood has many challenges, it teaches me unconditional love, to have a heart of encouragement, and to persevere when it gets extremely tough, the many tears, the frustrations have all brought me to the heart of GOD. There is absolutely no way I could ever do this motherhood thing without the LORD.
Trust me, I’m the least likely. I’m the one who would rather do things all on my own, I’m the one who would love to be independent and self-sufficient. I’ve learned through the years, of God’s sweet grace and His unfailing love. His love is sweeter than honey.
My joy is found in HIM when I’m found in Him and take delight in Him and His great love. Oh, He gently leads me, no matter what obstacles I face. It is simply me asking for His guidance, His help, His wisdom, His strength, His love to fill my empty heart. Only then can I love my children, cheer them on, encourage, pray over them, discipline them with grace. I don’t always get it right, but I’m not staying there, I’m calling on the name of the LORD. I recognize how desperately I need Him, my family, we need Him.
Encouragement is found in Him, in His Word. I do not want to be a woman looking for encouragement from the world because I know I would never get it there. My encouragement is found in Christ, my Identity is in Him, my joy is found in Him. When my eyes are on Him, I’m walking in victory with a heart full of joy, no matter what my circumstances are! Then Motherhood and everything else becomes a sweet song because HE is my sweet song, my precious treasure. My hope is in Him.
She looks well to how things go in her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Proverbs 31:27 AMP
