Let Me Walk Upon the Waters



One of my favorite songs to listen to when it comes on is Hillsong United's Oceans. Usually I have to turn it up so loud that most normal people would go slightly deaf in order to hear it over the chaos of the kids making noise. Honestly, this probably adds to that chaos but I love the lyrics to this song so much even though it's been difficult for me to relate to.

Why?

This is part of the song that is my favorite.


Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior


As a stay at home mom I do not always feel like I am being called to something great. Something worthy of Him. Something amazing.


Do you ever feel like that?

Do you ever feel like you are being called to where your trust and faith is stretched beyond everything you can imagine?

Do you ever feel like you are being called into the water to walk with Him?

Sometimes it's difficult to realize among the dishes, the laundry, the dirty diapers, the disaster of toys and books laid out on every floor in your home, the coffee that has been reheated thirty times that morning and what feels like a life that is filled with the same thing every single day.

However, Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders.


Motherhood. It's hard. It's not something that I have expertise in. I struggle daily. Don't you? Are we being lead to somewhere our trust is without borders in parenting? I more than believe so. I have to ask for help, for strength, for patience, for grace daily. I have to trust in Him that He will make me into the mother my kids need.


Let me walk upon the waters, Wherever You would call me. 

The Lord has called me to be a mother. This was not some fluke. It wasn't something that happened by chance. God had this plan laid out for me long before I was even a thought in my own parent's hearts. I was called. I have purpose as a mother and this purpose was given to me by God Himself.

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander...


Has this happened to you as a mom? I can't be the only one who has experienced walking with Him in this journey of motherhood and knowing that I could not go this journey all alone. I can only do it with Him by my side.


And my faith will be made stronger...


I have never been so sure of my faith, so confident in it than I have been as a mother. God shows me Himself so much through my kids. He shows me His love and His grace. He allows me to understand just how deeply He cares about me. He teaches me through my children lessons that I have refused to understand until becoming a mother. He has made me a stronger woman since becoming a mother. He has made me a more faithful daughter in Christ since becoming a mother. 


In the presence of my Savior. 

Always. Every. Single. Day. God is with me always. He is there with me while my hands are deep in soapy water washing dirty dishes. He is there with me when I am buried fully underneath loads of cleaned, but not yet folded laundry. He is there with me laughing as I take the hands of my baby girl and spin her around and around. He is there with me as I find the patience to figure out how to teach and discipline the three year old who just yelled at me. He is there with me as I close my eyes at night exhausted from the purpose He has given me, motherhood. 

Amen.
