Moms Seeking Jesus

First let me say that it IS okay to lock yourself in the bathroom (maybe with a snickers bar as well :)) when you feel that you just need a few minutes to clear your head, and talk to Jesus.

We can’t always find time though for this common mother trick.

We know, we know, we know, and we hear, we hear, we hear, that in the midst of all that we juggle in this life our first priority needs to be the Lord and spending time in His Word. We all live in the real world though and despite our best efforts there will be days when everything that can happen, will. I hate that dry and weary feeling. It’s the feeling that I’m lost in the middle of the wilderness with my babies and we need something more, something to bring more clarity and joy to our day.

We must have God’s Word to survive. And on an upside-down-day we feel like we’re starving.

This is an emergency devotional post of sorts. Maybe your headlights went out coming home late one night, and now the following morning is all a flutter in playing catch-up (this happened to my family this week). You could have been up and down all night with a sick baby. Maybe you have unexpected visitors show up – you’d loved to be a Mary, but you know you’re being Martha.
