Pep Talk to Myself

Your Heavenly Father, Who created you and knows you more intimately than anyone, determined before the foundation of the world that YOU would be a mother. A mother to these particular children. In all of creation, these children were hand-picked for YOU to mother. God in His infinite wisdom and sovereignty made the decision to make you all a family, and to put you in this exact location at this particular time in history. He has plans for your family that are far-reaching. Plans beyond what you could ask or imagine. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. He is working all things together for your good today. His mercies are new today. His faithfulness is great today. Of His fullness you will be receiving grace upon grace as you walk through this day- whatever it holds. You have the mighty Spirit of God within you today, providing you with immeasurable love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control. You have been given all that you need for life and godliness. So, go forth to meet this day without fear, as more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. Present your body as a living sacrifice and be transformed by the renewing of your mind to know that He has empowered you for this task. He has called you to be the Shepherdess of this particular little flock. Lead with diligence today. Show mercy with cheerfulness today. Abhor what is evil and cling to what is good today. Be not lacking in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer today. Sow to the Spirit and not to the flesh today. And when you feel like your efforts are futile and you fail to see fruit, walk by faith and not by sight. His Word promises that in due season you will reap if you do not lose heart. And His Word cannot lie. He is sustaining you with his righteous right hand and leading you beside still waters, restoring your soul, even as you go through this day. Lean upon your Beloved in the Wilderness and let it be said of you, "Who is she who looks forth as the morning, Fair as the moon, Clear as the sun, Awesome as an army with banners?"-Song of Solomon 6:10
