“Don’t reason away your faith.”


I love this quote by Christine Cane. I needed to be reminded of this this week, yes I know today is only Tuesday but it’s been one of those weeks already.

There are many days when I question what I’m doing. Or what God has planned for my life. It may be one of my bad mom moments and I began to think, am I really cut out for this? Or why on earth did you trust me enough with these beautiful babies? 

I love reminding myself of 2 Corinthians 5:7: Walk by faith not by sight.  

The message versions says 
“That’s why we live with such good cheer. You won’t see us drooping our heads or dragging our feet! Cramped conditions here don’t get us down. They only remind us of the spacious living conditions ahead. It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going. Do you suppose a few ruts in the road or rocks in the path are going to stop us? When the time comes, we’ll be plenty ready to exchange exile for homecoming.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:6-8‬ ‭MSG‬‬

 
There are many days where I come across a few ruts or several. But I am so thankful that my future, who I am as a woman, friend, wife and mother is not determined by my circumstances or past failures. He has equipped me with everything that I could ever possibly need.  
There is no need to question yourself or God for that matter. There is no reason to rehash or go through the what ifs and what nots in life.  All it does is lead you down a road of frustration, anger, depression and discouragement. Put all of your fear, anxiety, frustration in Him.  Trust that the creator of the entire universe, knows what He is doing.  

Don’t reason away your faith today.

Safety. Trust. 


Safety & Trust. The two come hand in hand in.  If you don’t trust someone, you will never feel safe with them.  

This morning I woke up feeling defeated by stupid breastfeeding.  Consumed by thoughts of, “I’m a horrible mother if I give up.” But “you’re a horrible mother anyways because you can’t feed your baby.”  Let’s just say I have a whole new respect for breast feeding mamas.  You are my Heros! 

As I lay the baby down, I began to pray and ask God for help.  What should I do?  Then I open the Bible to this verse, 

“I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.””

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:2

Psalms 91 has to be my favorite chapter of the entire bible but I love that this spoke to me this morning.  It may not be directly related to my breastfeeding break down.  But my entire relationship with the Lord.

This morning I’m reminded that I’m safe. My children are safe.  God is my refugee, my deliverer, my protector, my provider, my comforter, my peace, my joy, my everything.  Anything that I may need today, God is.  I lack nothing.  

Happy Wednesday friends!
