How many times do I act like Moses though my words might go something more like this…“God, I’m not being a good mother. I have no clue. Who am I that you have made me a mother to such incredible children!” A few weeks ago, I was even thinking I would be better off in the workforce rather than staying home with our children full time. I was considering my escape routes from the calling God has given me and they were seeming quite tempting.
Gently, compassionately, God corners me though when I am feeling insecure and weak. Through His word and the counsel of other wise moms, He shows me I am relying on myself. I am surrendering my heart and soul to the foolishness of my wayward heart rather than clinging securely to His promises for me. In Him, in His strength, I am absolutely, fully equipped!
God said go and Moses did ultimately obey. He gave his life to be a servant…to serve and lead the Israelites, often such a thankless, disobedient group of people. If he could give of himself to lead thousands, I can give these years to a handful of little people who sin a lot but, oh ya, so do I!:)
When God corners us, He is being faithful to us. I pray that God will always corner me so that I will not forsake His voice. There is too much to lose by running and so much to gain by obeying.
