Have you ever tried reading the bible and than everyone wakes up with you?? Goodness I had one of those mornings recently! One morning I woke up ready to read His Word and sit in His presence than all of a sudden all my kids wake up than my dog comes trying to get right on my lap and the baby crying… WHOA! This early at 5:30 in the morning!
Let me grab my coffee real quick, add some essential oils and help me get through the morning. Us mamas feel so weary at times. We feel so out of place. We feel so unorganized. I know I do sometimes! I applied some White Angelica and some Joy in the morning to help my emotions. I already started having a emotional break down.
White Angelica contains pure Melissa and Bergamot essential oils, promotes feelings of protection and security when diffused, and can be used to guard against negative energy.
Joy essential oil blend is perfect for diffusing or applying topically. Members’ favorite Joy oil uses include diffusing it around the home for a pleasant, joyful aroma. Apply Joy essential oil blend topically and wear it as a fragrance to invite togetherness.
I usually apply these over the heart, behind the neck, and inhale from my hands. I love these two aromas when reading the word. It brings such great uplifting energy. As I was reading todays reading with another community it spoke loud to me. “Casting all your anxieties on Him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7. Throughout today’s reading it seemed so perfect for the morning that was happening.
I’m a mom tries to spend a lot of time with him alone, and sometimes it doesn’t go as planned. But I do spend time with Him even if it means my kids have to sit with me and keep quite (even when its hard for them to be hushed ha). I have learned to block sound out and still continue to worship and praise. Want to know what else I learned? Which is crazy exciting?! By getting up early in the mornings and spending time in the Word while my kids see me quietly reading going back and forth researching and also listening to worship music, not only am I changing within myself, but I am showing and being an example to my children. They see me strive everyday getting up ready to read and just sit in His presence they also see this too knowing sitting, resting and listening is the best part.
I have my journals to write verses that stand out to me, what I think they mean and what the Holy Spirit is telling me it means. Also prayers, dreams and praises that I have. My children see this, they see what Jesus really means to me and one day they will want this also. I don’t want to force my children because forcing doesn’t do it good, instead God has been showing me to lead my example not push on them without me leading the example. Oh burn! But I’m so glad he is directing me and showing me! Aren’t you?
He is such a faithful abounding in love true to his promises father! As I have been doing this, I have been seeing such changes in my children. My family. Myself.
