A passage in God's word that I have been meditating on lately is Philippians 4:6-9 which says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." So, when Satan tempts me to dwell on all the other things I could be doing outside the home, when I start to wonder if I am a good enough mom or think that I can't do this, whenever I am worried or anxious, I repeat these verses to myself and combat the enemies antics with the sword of truth. The enemy comes to steal and kill and destroy but we are told in John 10:10 that Jesus came so that we could have life abundantly. So my goal is to live the life that God has called me to with abundance, to enjoy my husband and children, and to serve with a cheerful heart just as my Savior did.
Here are some small ways we are living life to the fullest and enjoying each other as a family:
