The twist of an ankle sent me crashing forward in space. Abigail my two year old barely awoke snuggled into my neck “safe” in my arms.
Protective reactions created within us by God dictate my arms would shoot out in front of me to protect my body. Instead, I tucked Abby in deeper and my elbows came up. Instantaneously my body moved not by my will or by my might but instantaneously. I roll to my back as I writhe in pain Abigail remained snuggled. She finally fully awoke when two of my other children ran up the stairs and began shouting, “Are you okay?”
God created all of us with protective reactions to shield our heads from trauma. My reactions of protecting Abigail went against my original creation design. After this experience, I realized God changed my original creation design from protecting me into protecting my children. He created within me new mother protective reactions.
This thought blew up in my mind. If He can create the ability within me, to do what is best for my children, without thinking, and without effort, maybe I should ask Him to do this in other areas of my life.
- Lord Jesus, come in to my mother’s decisions
- Lord Jesus, come in to the discipline of my children
- Lord Jesus, come in to my mothering conversations
- Lord Jesus, come in to my marriage
- Lord Jesus, come in to my workplace
There is no place that the Lord cannot transform- no place, except that which we hold back from Him because of our own misguided will. Release your will from the areas of your life God wants to touch.
Psalm 139:7-12 (NIV)
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I release my will from every area of my life that You want access to. Please, create a switch with in my mind that my very instincts, the reactive part of my being be transformed and conformed to the mind of Christ. Align the very synapsis of my brain to the Word and Will of God so that I am unable to react in a way that deviates my actions from Christ. Let it be. Thank you, Jesus. Amen
Join me in this leap of faith- believe that Christ can do what He says.
Stop hiding and begin enjoying your freedom, bought and paid for by Christ.
Have you ever had a supernatural mother experience? I would love to hear about it.
