It was one of those weeks where I felt more like a drill sergeant then a mom. I had just delivered my last round of instructions and was in the process of seeing them ignored. I was frustrated and I think they were too. I could find where my children had been by the trail they had left. In the long run, I am not sure where a clean house ranks up but at this moment I wanted a clutter free one at least. Then God spoke to my heart that I needed to focus on my kids hearts not just their outward behavior. Unless the heart changes, our actions don't truly change. Isn't that how God changes us? From the inside out.
Dear God, Help me to focus on what really matters. I know you are busy working on me. Give me eyes to see my children as you see them. Guide my mothering to be what you would want it to be. Amen
