Mom, Will I Be Famous Someday?

"Mom, do you think that I will be famous someday?"

"I think you are very talented, so you may be famous someday. It depends though if this is God's will for your life."

"I want to be a famous singer someday."



I'm giving advice about God's will to my daughter and in my heart I truly believe this, but lately I'm having a such a hard time discerning God's will for my own life. I'm praying that God reveals something to me that will help me understand. Is it that I'm trying to follow my own will, because his will is difficult? or is it a heart or sin matter?

I can relate to Sarah Groves lyrics from Hello, Lord-

Hello Lord, it's me your child
I have a few things on my mind
Right now I'm faced with big decisions
And I'm wondering if you have a minute, cuz
Right now I don't hear so well
And I was wondering if you could speak up

I know that you tore the veil
So I could sit with you in person
And hear what you're saying but
Right now, I just can't hear you.

I don't doubt your sovereignty
I doubt my own ability to
Hear what you're saying
And to do the right thing
And I desperately want to do the right thing
But right now I don't hear so well
And I was wondering if you could speak up


I'm going to keep in prayer and trust that God will give me the answers.

Many Blessings,

Jen

Happy Mother's Day!



You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13


How awesome that God uses us to create life! What an honor.





I'll be away for a few days with my husband for a wedding. I am blessed to be able to see my childhood friend get married. Looking forward to the time away with my husband, even though I know that I will miss my little ones.

Take Care and God Bless you and your families! Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Preschool Sunday


Yesterday, my peanut sang in church with her classmates for Preschool Sunday. There isn't anything cuter than a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds praising God! She really has overcome past fears of getting on stage. She sang her little heart out and was dancing a little jig as she sang. Momma's proud!















Daddy's proud of his little girl, too!






Have a wonderful Monday!

Blessings,

Jen
