Everyday Thank God in Messes
So, this young mom sent me a text which read; “It’s like one minute I’m in college ready to travel the world for Jesus but the next thing you know I’m married with an infant who just took his hand out of his diaper and spread poo all over my shirt.” I sent a text back to the young mom; “Remember it’s a season you’re in and “this poo will pass.”
One thing that helped me as a young mom was to follow Ephesians 5:20 and thank God for what we have even when we don’t feel like it. It helps when I almost get silly and start thanking Him for my toothbrush, my hair, running water, etc. The young mom sent a text back which read; “Okay, I thanked God for the food I’m able to give Jacob so he can poo.” AMEN! Thank God for what you can, count your blessings one by one. Life is hard but this too shall pass…everyday.
