Today I will

Today I will.....
....Remember that my children are not my own. They belong to God. They are HIS and I am borrowing them. I will remember that HE loves them more then I do.

Today I will
.......Remember that being a toddler is hard.
I will remember that being a mom of a toddler (or 3!) is hard.
Today I will give us both grace as we lean to be a toddler and a grown up with a toddler!

Today I will.....
.....be both fruitful and productive.
Both are valuable. Both are important.
But if the day dictates that I must choose- I will chose to be fruitful!

Today I will.....
......Not get frustrated with my children for being children.
Instead I will remember that God has charged me with training and teaching them. That I model the behavior that they will imitate. I will remember that my children are learning and that I GET to teach them. I will remember what a blessing that is!!  

Today I will......
....Remember that the only effective disciple is that which is done in love. I will discipline my children with love and I will speak words to them in love.

Today I will.....
.....Remember that my words have more power then I can fathom. Planting a seed today may in fact reap an abundant harvest in the future. I will remember to water and nurture that seed when ever I am given the chance!

Today I will......
....Remember that everyone I meet is fighting a battle that I know nothing about. I will give the grumpy old man at the grocery store grace. I will wave and smile at the person who cuts me off in traffic. I will remember that I too am fighting a battle and I also deserve grace.

Today I will....
.....Remember that my husband is my team mate. We are on the same team! We are not opponents. We are on the same team! We play for the same coach (God), we protect the same goal (our marriage and our kids) we run towards the same goal line (that our lives, our family will be a testament for god's kingdom).  I will remember that he too is fighting a battle and that he also deserves grace!

Today I will.....
......Remember that the inner voice in my head is not always right. I will tell that inner voice to speak truth. I will silence that inner voice when it try's to tell me lies about myself, my looks or my worth.


Today I will....
....Remember that the choices I make today will effect generations who follow me. I will remember that my obedience to God is more important then the acceptance of this world. Because as society changes in how they see success and worth, God Word never does. To society I may be loved and accepted one day and the next not. But to God I am loved and accepted every day.

Today I will.....
