31 days {coffee & Jesus}

I've needed Jesus a lot in my life, but in motherhood, it is different. 
It's not that I need Him more than before, but at the same time it is. 
In the morning when I wake, one of the first things that pops into my mind is, 
"Help me Jesus!" because I know a day full of motherhood is going to take a lot of me! 

I know I cannot do it without Him! 
I may try to do it by myself, but the truth it is its much more messy that way.
I need His guidance in how to be with my children, how to love them. 
Toddlers can be frustrating little people... with their crying, fussing, fighting, ect. 
Often that is hard to handle on my own! 
I need Jesus to help me be patient, loving, and kind! 
I fail at this often, but He's always there to help me to do better and give me grace. 
I am so thankful for that. Its scary to think where I'd be in motherhood without Him. 

I know I still have lots of work to do in going to Him. 
I need to be more consistent, open my Bible more, and say His name out-loud,
so my children can hear His name and see me turning to Him. 
I'm trying to get better at that and I'm thankful that He gives me grace with that too. 

Thank You for being patient with me Lord. For being loving and kind. 
Also, thank for You for coffee. You know how much I need that!
