THE WAY TO LIVE
I love the words of the hymn:
All to Jesus I surrender,
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.
The last line is such a lovely phrase for us mothers. It is the answer to all the big and little challenges and frustrations we face each day. It’s not always easy to deal with the different attitudes and behaviors of each of our children—all at once! Wow, we certainly we need God with us, don’t we?
But God IS with you, dear mother. Seek to live in His presence. Instead of giving into the flesh and becoming frustrated and angry, yield to Jesus. He lives in you. He’s waiting to live His life through you. Nothing takes Him by surprise. Nothing gets His stomach tied up in knots. He lives in rest. And He wants you to live in His rest as He dwells in you.
All it takes is our constant decision making to yield to Jesus instead of yielding to the flesh.
Will you live in His presence today? It’s the most joyful, restful, and victorious way to live.
