I woke up today feeling tired and unmotivated. Then I saw this beautiful sunflower growing in my garden. Such gifts from God always remind me to give thanks for the simple pleasures in life. The sunflower also reminded that it has been awhile since I’ve had a quiet time. After having a quiet time, I felt inspired to have a great day playing with my son as well as cleaning out my craft boxes.
As mothers and wives, we have the ability to encourage and support our children and husbands. What is in our heart overflows into our words and our words have a powerful affect. They can stain or heal. They can bring injury or bring healing. Personally, I struggle with taming my tongue. While no man can truly tame their tongue, God can!
Practical Solutions to be a better wife and mother
- Saturate yourself with scripture
- Pray without ceasing
- Be deliberate about encouragement
Matthew 12:35 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.
