This blog is for moms who love God and love their children. It is intended to offer encouragement and share lessons learned by moms on their journey to grow spiritually while simultaneously raising Godly children. The main thing is to keep the Main Thing the main thing, then everything else will fall (stumble, tumble, and sometimes bounce) into place.

God uses Steadfast Obedience
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Today's post is a blessing from our guest blogger, Angie Seal.
What an amazing God we serve. All throughout the bible God used obedience.
We forget these days that God cares more about obedience than perfection and think "I'm a good person" or "I''m a good church goer," but we aren't committed to being obedient.
I learned about being committed to obedience about 4 years ago and it has changed my life forever.
My mom and my mother in law both passed away within a 4 month span. I was devastated to say the least. My sister became very angry at everyone including God. Despite my own pain, or maybe because of it, God put it on my heart to start sending her encouraging text messages. So every night I sent her a text with a scripture, a thought on how to apply it in today's world, and a prayer.
4 years later the nightly text to her has grown to 65 people, 1 email list, and 3 Facebook pages, EVERY NIGHT. It has also led to a daily devotional book. By the grace of God, I haven't missed one night.
Through those text God has revealed to me soo many things, but one of the most important things I needed to learn was to be committed to obedience. I stand firm knowing that "today is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2) and my "Hope is in His word." (Psalm 130:5)
I choose to seek Him on purpose in my daily life and I desire to live a life that glorifies God's holy name and I invite you to do the same. You'll be blessed more than you could ever imagine. Angie Seal
