I've only had this mom gig for six months, but it's been so sweet. There are times I don't know how I'm going to get through a situation and others that are so precious I have to write them down.
On Sunday, one of those sweet moments occurred. I was holding Maggie on my lap at church and Brandon pulled out the Bible to follow along with the Scripture reading. She reached for the Bible with both hands. Obviously, she didn't know what she was reaching for, but only wanted it because it was something different and unknown.
I thought about how her reaching for the Bible, was a reminder to me to reach for the Bible. My Heavenly Father wants me to have the same enthusiasm with which she reached each time I sit down to read the Word. It was a beautiful reminder in a season of struggling to get into a rhythm of daily quiet times and reading God's word faithfully. Since returning to work, I've been undisciplined about getting up early enough to allow time to read and pray.
Even though motherhood has its challenges, I'm so grateful for the reminder this little one brings to lean on Jesus and read God's word. She pushes me to want more, to set a good example and love unconditionally.
