A quick message of perseverance for moms.

Everything you do matters. Even when you can't see where God is at work, you can trust that he is. Check out this tidbit I read from one of my favorite blogs.

"We need time for our faith to grow. When we plant seeds, we can't repeatedly dig them up and pull them out of the ground to see if they are growing. We have to leave them in the ground. Those planted seeds (that we can no longer see) need to be watered by our faith. During the process we must learn to be content with seeing nothing while knowing that God holds everything in His hands, and that He moves on every act prompted by our faith, as the Scripture says."
-Susie Larson
This visual application seemed incredibly relevant to me today, as a mom of young children in a season where seeds are planted, but the fruit has yet to show itself. Keep watering your plants dear mommies. Hold onto your faith, persevere through the rough seasons, and praise God in the good seasons. Hope this message is encouraging and uplifting for you. Praying God's blessing on you today!!

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

I am so happy I found this blog! Thank you for the reminder that the seeds are being planted and a harvest will come from it. It's good to remember this when my two year old is having a tantrum. :)

Great words, Alisha. Thanks for the encouragement. Mommyhood definitely has it's struggles, but we have to persevere and not give up.
