The Pressing Pause saga has now resumed with more thoughts from the kindle version of the book by Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk.
These ladies feel that it is important for us women and moms to spend time with Jesus before doing anything else in the morning. It is our vow to meet with God first. We are to be seated at His feet. It’s not always easy but it can be done!
It is stressed that we as a family can make an impact for Christ. We can shape kids outside of our family too. We need to make prayer a matter of prayer. A priority. Our mistakes are intended to be great opportunities for us to lean onto Jesus. Our biggest enemy is Satan. Satan will always find a way so we need to be strong and always have Christ on us.
Our friendships should always be like pure, honest and true. In the midst of the chaos that come with motherhood, we are to make sure that we also have fun with our kids, show joy, share lightheartedness fun, and love. We have to always slow down for that to happen. And in today’s world, many do not slow down so we need to make that a priority.
Walking by faith is true faith. It takes work. It requires taking a risk in stepping out of your comfort zone of what we know and like and action. Faith in action is trusting God to be our Provider and Protector. Fear is absolutely not a part of walking by faith. We can’t see God, but we have to feel that He is there!
