    Prayers for My Child – Back to School Edition

    Oh Lord…here we go!

    Back to homework assignments.

    Back to special projects.

    Back to state exams. Packing lunch bags. Fussing over outfit choices, or why the uniform is “boring”. And my all time favorite, back to the daily dash to make it out the house on time.

    Sweet Jesus, it’s back to school time!

    Would you excuse me for a moment while I take a deep breath. Feel free to take one too. I  promise, I won’t judge!

    One Word that Changed Mother’s Day For Me

    Written by Tanisha Shanee exclusively for This Is Her Journey

    May: The month where April showers blossoms May flowers. The month for new beginnings. And also the month where children celebrate their mothers.

    For the last six years, this month has taken on a whole new meaning. What is supposed to be an exciting and wonderful season has turned into a very emotional time for me.

    Why is Mother’s Day so emotional for me?

    Well, I do have my mother with me, I thank the Lord, Jesus Christ for that. She is a beautiful, strong woman who gave birth to two beautiful women.

    But, for some women like me, even though we have our mothers in our lives, we still feel pain on this day because of one word: MISCARRIAGE.

    Is God Listening?

    “But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer. Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.” Psalm 66:19-20
    ‭‭

    Ever wonder if God is listening to your prayers? Me too!

    Even though I grew up in a Christian home and have been in church for most of my life, there are times when I struggle with doubt:

    Is God listening to me?

    Will this prayer make a difference?

    Does it make sense to pray about this situation?

    Will this prayer work coming from me…or should I ask someone more spiritually strong to pray for me, this way God will answer?

    But recently I’ve been experiencing God’s answers in the strangest way.

    Take A Closer Look

    “But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

    I can never polish my nails as nicely as they do at the nail salon.

    Maybe it’s because of the awkward angles I have to paint from. Maybe it’s because this is what they do every single day. Or maybe it’s because I’m just too heavy handed when it comes to the applications.

    Either way there’s always a big difference when I DIY my nails versus going to get them professionally done.

    Don’t get me wrong, from a distance, you can’t really tell the difference.

    When I do my own nails, they’re decent enough to get compliments from others. But when I take a close up look, I can always spot the imperfections.

    The closer I examine my paint job, the more over the lines, smudging, and uneven polish I see.

    But isn’t that like our walk with Christ?

    Live Content. Think Content. Be Content.

    Not that I speak from [any personal] need, for I have learned to be content [and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy] regardless of my circumstances. I know how to get along and live humbly [in difficult times], and I also know how to enjoy abundance and live in prosperity. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret [of facing life], whether well-fed or going hungry, whether having an abundance or being in need.” Philippians 4:11-12 (AMP)

    Content. That’s been the word on my heart and my lips for the past week.

    You see, scrolling through my social media timeline made me more and more dissatisfied with the progression of my life. But almost immediately the Holy Spirit reminded of the Apostle Paul’s words in Philippians 4:11-12:

    “…I have learned to be content [and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy] regardless of my circumstances.

    I know how to get along and live humbly [in difficult times], and I also know how to enjoy abundance and live in prosperity. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret [of facing life], whether well-fed or going hungry, whether having an abundance or being in need.”

    Perhaps you’ve been feeling disturbed or uneasy about your circumstances lately.
