Leave Room For God

Posted by Tami Wallace on October 29, 2014 @ 11:08 AM

I recently read a devotional that challenged me as to how I handle difficult situations in my life.  Leave room for God.  Am I?  I can say I am but deep in my heart do I know that I am.  On my own I cannot fix every problem, heal every hurt or even stop my mind from being consumed with worry.  But I know the one who can.  Am I leaving room for Him to work?  Psalm 37:7 – “Be still and rest in the Lord, wait for Him and patiently lean upon Him.”   Psalm 37:5 – “Commit your way to the Lord (roll each care of your load on Him; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.”   For me the hardest part is trusting in the silence.  But I am learning.  I’ve committed the situation to Him and He’s got it covered.  He can calm the storm and bring peace.  I’m going to be still, rest, and leave room for God to work.

Raising Kids

Posted by Tami Wallace on October 23, 2014 @ 12:52 PM

Raising kids has got to be the toughest job on the planet!  I was thinking about all the stages of mothering and realized that none are easy.  When your children are babies you're totally sleep deprived, exhausted and at times you may wonder if life will ever be normal again.  Eventually they sleep through the night but then comes the super busy, not enough hours in the day, season of school aged kids.  Finally they go away to college.  And guess what?  Mothering continues!  Only now the stakes seem extremely high.  What career will they choose?  What kind of adult will they turn out to be?  Will they marry the right person?  And please dear Lord let them live near me when the grandbabies come along.  It can be overwhelming.  But Isaiah 26:3 comes to mind.  "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in You."  As you pray over your children remember that God loves them even more than you do (how is that even possible) and He will keep what we commit to Him!  You trust in God, keep your mind on Him; He will keep you in peace and your kids will be okay.

What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do

Posted by Tami Wallace on August 14, 2014 @ 3:56 PM

It seems like I have talked to many people recently who are discouraged.   They are facing problems that seem to overwhelm them, there are no easy answers, and they don’t know what to do.

So I thought I’d share with you what I do, when I don’t know what to do.

Pray the Word!

Find scriptures that apply directly to whatever situation you are facing, write them out, and make them personal.  Stop saying you don’t know what to do and begin to say what the Bible says. 

Here’s an example of prayer for those times when you don’t know what to do:

Father, I thank you that I do hear the voice of the good shepherd and the voice of a stranger I’ll never follow.  My steps are ordered by You and You delight in my ways.  Because I trust in you with all my heart and I don’t lean on my own understanding, in all my ways I acknowledge You; You will direct my paths.  You have good plans for my future.  They are plans to prosper me and not to harm me.  They give me hope in my final outcome.  I believe that as I trust in You completely, you will show me what to do.  In Jesus’ name, Amen. 

Sounds simple, doesn't it?  But we often overlook the most basic things and just need to be reminded.  God’s Word will change your circumstances.  It will not return void.  It will accomplish what it is supposed to accomplish!
