Full Access

I was in discussion with my mom about a close friend who is very sick with COVID-19, she was feeling discouraged and so I took the opportunity to share with her what God was showing me and blessing me with in hopes that it would lift her spirits.

Every time I open up my bible I keep seeing the same message over and over again. I am realizing, God really intended to be very involved in our lives. He truly wants to be our source and for us to fully live in him. I told her how I read John 17, it’s right before Jesus is going to be taken into custody and he actually prays for us and prays for a unity like no other!

Seriously think about this! He knew that some bad stuff was about to happen to HIM, and he was praying for us!!! Jesus was thinking of us! 💞

For lack of better words, I feel immensely humbled by his demonstration of REAL love!

He prays this beautiful exchange or transaction with the Father, for us. I picture Jesus sweaty and worn down, like nearing the end of a weary battle, and he makes the final negotiations. Father, Just like we are one, now they can be one, and the glory you gave to me, they have that glory!

23You live fully in me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity, and the world will be convinced that you have sent me, for they will see that you love each one of them with the same passionate love that you have for me.

So Moms, invite Christ to live fully in your life, not just part way, or only in the emergencies, or in the good moments. But in everyday, I believe that He is faithful, and will help us in even the tiniest details. He’s secured this incredible unity with the all knowing and incredible creator, why wouldn’t we use full access!

Today I experienced a small example. I was doing review work with my kids and one of my children was struggling to remember stuff. They’re not ready to be a notetaker yet, and my Heavenly Father was so faithful in providing creative solutions. Next thing you know, we are grabbing a stuffed unicorn whom is now Thomas Paine, and Barbie who is on the fence of whether to side with the crown or to rebel and fight for liberty! 😆 If you knew me well enough, you’d realize that is out of the ordinary!

Look at it this way, if you were painting a room, would you just paint a few patches? Or just half of it? No, you would paint it fully, and that is how we should be in our relationship with our Savior.

Heavenly Father, I pray that moms would be joined together with you as one, that we would learn to rely on you in all of our ways. I pray our ways, would become your ways. Be near us, oh Lord and give us strength, and energy for the tasks that lie ahead. Help us to see and recognize that the passionate way you loved Jesus, you feel that way about us! -Amen
