A couple of weeks ago I asked, "What inspires you?" on my Facebook page.
I love hearing about thing things in life that people enjoy and helps them get through their days.
This question also gave me a little perspective on what I should try and write about here on EYL.
One of the main things that people replied back about was faith.
And not just faith, but their mother's faith!
As I sat back and watched the comments, tweets, and emails roll in about this I thought about my own mother and how her faith inspires me each and every day!
So I picked up my phone, and called her to thank her for living in God's light each and every day!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
That right there is one of my mother's favorite bible verses.
And I can honestly say that it is one of my own now as well.
As soon as she read this verse to me it spoke to me.
I have been traveling down a road where mistakes have lead me to the right places in my life.
At the time the 'mistake' was being made I had no understanding of why this was happening. I felt frazzled and lost, but as time went on with each situation the paths of each met and became something great!
I know that if I put my heart and soul into Gods hands he will lead me to where I need to be!
I have recently been feeling like a failure. As a wife, as a mother, just in general.
Just by talking to my mom about her own faith and seeing how she makes herself vulnerable for God take her in the right directions really opened up my eyes as to why I am in the places I am.
Now one said life as easy, but when we embrace it we can see the true potential of who we can be and where God wants to lead us. It's truly amazing if you think about it!
So take the time to call your mom and thank her.
Or take the time to pick up the bible and flip through.
Odds are God will have you turn the pages to something great! Just like in life.
