On Saturday, David and I were working on a F-14 Lego set together while Lee was at the hospital. While I was showing him (again) how to follow the instructions, I thought about the necessity of God’s Word for living our lives. So we talked about that as we constructed the landing gear. I’m thankful God gave me that thought. I need to pray this morning that God would continue to show me ways I can talk about Him throughout the day.
I feel rather empty of ideas like that, and I know what I’d really like is a list. What did you use to talk about the Lord today? But if I had a list, then I might be deceived into thinking that I didn’t need God, and God has promised to supply my need in this area. It’s not that sharing ideas with each other is wrong, but it is wrong to believe those ideas essential. God is essential, not the ideas of wise mothers. Maybe we just need to attribute the ideas of wise mothers to the right source, and then we won’t be overly dependent. Or maybe God will occasionally move us to a place where we don’t have any wise mothers nearby, in order to teach us where our dependence truly should be.
When we do fellowship with other mothers, may we actually remind each other where we get our daily bread, and thank Him together for His wisdom. God surprised me by sending a friend whom I could pray with like that here in our small town. I’m thankful for her, too.
