I'll be honest, I don't know much about them, but you can follow Thrive Moms with me on Instagram at @thrive_moms . Also, if you have an iPhone or iPad, download the Bible app from Life Church. I regularly turn to the built in devotionals for guidance in my time with the Lord. I was thrilled to find out that Thrive Moms' bible study was available through the Bible app I've come to love!
So anyway, today is day 2 out of 10 and I am loving this so much! I felt like yesterday's content and scripture was written just for me! Have you ever been in church or listening to Christian music or just in some type of reflection with God and gotten this warm and fuzzy feeling? Like you were speaking directly with your God and things were really just clicking? That is the most wonderful feeling, and that is exactly what came over me when I was reading for day 1. I think I just had my heart ready for this message.
It is about being one of God's warriors, and let me tell you lately motherhood for me has felt like a battle. I'm battling with my daughter's father who refuses to be present and seems to go out of his way to make parenting harder on me. I'm battling with school and work and everything that calls for my attention when I want to give the time and attention to my daughter. I'm battling with my daughter to get her to eat healthy, use her manners, and practice safe behavior (I type this as I'm banning her from the furniture because all she wants to do is flip off of it - hello daughter I love, do you want to break your neck?!).
Yes, life is a battle. But do you have your armor on? We have the armor of God to protect us in this parenting battle! Oh the comfort and piece of mind that brings me! I need God. I can't do this on my own. As much as I want to be Superwoman and have it all figured out and do this motherhood and life thing flawlessly, I can't. But I can do it with God and my best is enough when I'm working through Him!
Let that sink in! You don't have to go it alone! Just make sure when you walk into battle, you're prepared and in the armor of God.
I hope if any of you are having a hard time you can take comfort in that fact. I know I do. Now don't forget to get your Bible app and look up Thrive Moms! Let me know what your favorite part of the bible study is.
