Sometimes God feels far. He feels far for me right now. I feel like a ball in a ping ball machine, bounced around in a chaotic rattling, but not really going anywhere. Only to return from where I came from, the bottom.

When life feels dark and we are pinging off of anxiety, depression, grief, and other threatening emotions, how can we find balance, peace, and truth?

Listen to this week’s video reflection. I hope it helps you and those you love.

PRAY

God, I know Your Word says you never leave me, but you feel far away. Do you see me? The way ahead is clouded and I am overcome. Please help me. Please show me the way, even for just the next step. The noise and the chaos clouds me from clarity. Please, be my clarity. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

Motherhood is culture making.

Sometimes the repetition of sock-folding, dish-scrubbing, diaper-changing, and grocery-shopping seems mundane. Yet when we realize that motherhood is part of the grand purpose of God for us to make something of this world, the mundane turns into an avenue of purpose-driven creation.

Prayer invites God to work in our hearts and through our lives.

Sometimes it feels intimidating. What do I pray for? Start with what you think about, since prayer is talking to God and pausing to listen.

Wondering how to reach your child’s heart? Pray.

Worried about bills? Pray.

Thankful for your kids? Pray.

Need a miracle? Pray.

God is ready to hear every thought or word directed at Him, whether in the quiet moments, on the playground, or in carpool.

Watch and be amazed at how our hearts will change and how God will move when we pray.
