Everyday Moments

It’s the every day moments of being a mom that are unique. No one can take away the memories of watching your daughter take her first steps or teaching your son to ride the bike.

Yesterday I was teary eyed…

Have you ever noticed that you can have conflicting emotions as a mom. You can be happy and sad at the same time. Yesterday I was pulled by these powerful emotions. On the one hand, I had a beautiful brunch made my my daughter Sarah Faith who flew in town for Mother’s Day. With Flowers on the table from my husband and an abundance of cards from my children, I was more than blessed. So why was I teary-eyed?

Season’s Change

If you have faced any type of life-change you understand. Every mom I know holds each of her children deep in her heart. We miss each one when they are not around our table at Mother’s Day.

Everyday Moments everyday moments

I love seeing this picture of my beautiful mom and I with our matching dresses. The two pictures told a story of what our life was like as a family. I was the only girl with three older brothers. Notice how content I was before my brother stole my cat!

These everyday moments are precious!

When my daughters were all young teens, I began to do this thing that I would hold up my hands and pretend to take a picture through out the day. This was before I had an I-phone and could literally take pictures every moment. I would take these imaginary snapshots to remember the ordinary times that were in reality extraordinary.

Seizing the Season

Everyone of us as human beings face daily choices. We could hold onto the past and fight a losing battle as we try to keep everything the same, or we can move forward in faith. God’s word says,

…I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Philippians 3:13-14 NLT

Living in faith in the everyday moments of our lives requires us to:

1. Let Go of Our Past

Letting go of the difficult things in our lives is not as difficult as letting go of the good things.

The most difficult thing in answering God’s call to plant a church north of Dallas Texas was that we would be leaving our adult daughters in Tennessee. Just thinking about that was heart-wrenching for me as a mom. I remember walking with my mom on a path outside our Tennessee home. At one point my mom stopped and looked at me and said, “You have a call of God on your life. You have raised your daughter’s. You need to answer God’s call. ”

I don’t know what wonderful things in your past that you need to let go of, but I do know that God will show you how to answer His call in your life. There will be bitter with the sweet. The season is changing anyway, you may as well embrace it with grace and dignity.

2. Live in the Present

What is if about your present life, that you can savor and enjoy?  Are you finding the everyday moments to delight in?  For Wayne and I, it has been discovering the joy of being happily married. We like the simplicity of eating our meals together around a smaller table with fewer dishes. We like our freedom to go on dates.

Most of all, I love the excitement of building a new church from scratch. I love being available to have “divine appointments” every day. I love building relationships with people in our community. I love the fact that God has opened doors for me to write and speak to a growing national community.

3. Lay Hold of the Future

What is it in your future that God is calling you to? Are you willing to take the risk of letting go of the past in order to lay hold of the future?  It’s really about trust isn’t it? 

Next year at this time, Life Bridge Church will be launched north of Dallas Texas. There will be a new community of faith celebrating Mother’s Day together. My husband and I and our launch team will have the privilege of “giving birth” to this body of believer’s. We will experience the miracle of being a community carrying the presence and power of Jesus Christ to everyone we meet.
