From a blog called "How to Be a More Patient Mom in 24 Hours" :
When we are frustrated and angry, our responses are not going to bring to bring about righteousness in our children.
Be all there for your children.
From Ordering Your Private World by McDonald
We do not rest because our work is done, we rest because God commanded it and created us to have a need for it.
From Lysa Terkeurst's blog:
"Giving grace doesn't make the other person right. It acknowledges my own desperate need for it."
From her post called: And Don't Be Afraid of the Big:
God doesn't just want us to call ourselves people of faith. God wants his people to live lives that actually require faith. There's a difference.
From The Message (Eugene Peterson) Passages from the book of Matthew.
You're blessed when you are at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you.
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.
