Keep At It

Every time I look at my photos from the past, I’m left so blown away by God’s goodness and the growth that has happened right beneath my nose. Now I see why albums are such precious memoirs, each picture tells a tale of His faithfulness.

Being a stay at home mum, means I’m with Ksena most of the time. In between diaper changes, meal times and the activities we do, sometimes I fail to see the growth taking place. It’s only when people see her and exclaim how big she’s gotten that it hits me, perhaps she was growing all along. When she tells me a story or starts singing out of the blue, I realize that she’s been learning all along.

Yesterday she told me the stories that we’ve been reading in her bible, and I was humbled. Reminded to keep at it even when I can’t see the results happening. ¬†Sometimes she decides she wants another story, in the middle of the one we are reading, but it is not in vain.

This made me think about my walk with God, sometimes I struggle with my readings, stop reading a book midway, but I’ve purposed to keep at it. Though I may not see the transformation as it happens, a few days later, I realize my perspective has changed. His word has transformed the way I think.

I want to encourage you to just keep at it. Keep doing what God has called you to do, even when it seems like you are barely moving.

Keep pursuing God; your time with Him never leaves you the same. When you look back, you will see how He has transformed you.

May you have a blessed week ahead.

Dare To Look Past the Pain : Day 22

Miss K has been teething for the last couple of days. We thought it was just one tooth coming out, it turns out they were three. Yes three, all at once. You can imagine the discomfort. Teething pains are quite something. One night she woke up 5 times. I was even confused. The following morning, one broke through.

As I reflected on the troubled nights, God revealed to me that it is important to look past the pain. Sometimes I focus so much on the pain and get lost in bemoaning. However, something good will come out of the pain. Sometimes, the pain is necessary for the blessing to break through.

Today, I am encouraged, that the season of discomfort will soon come to an end. It will bear fruit and God is able to use the pain to do exceedingly abundantly much more than I could ever think, ask or imagine.

What teething pains are you experiencing?

What is causing your faith to falter?

Be encouraged dear friend, be encouraged.

The prayer of the day:

Dear God,

I thank you for seasons of pain. Though they threaten to break me, You cultivate perseverance in me. I am learning that the pain has a purpose. There are times when I want to give up, but please strengthen me and encourage me. May I live to see the revelation of the pain. May lives be changed because of this pain.

In Jesus name I pray and believe,

Amen

The song of the day:

Blessings,
