The Best of Facebook

Today I wanted to share my two favorite Facebook posts: 

"You’re the primary authority when it comes to praying for your child. Think about it: before your child was formed in your womb, God knew your child and He chose you to carry, nurture and care. You know every quirk and mannerism from the inside out. Use that information as prayer material. Pray the Word of God in your child’s present but more importantly, in their future. Pray with faith: “Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].” Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)"
• I spend a few nights waking up every hour in the hour to take care of one of my kids. I realized how important prayer is during those nights I can't get a lot of rest. My children are growing and changing before my face and I know that in this season of life, I need to establish a strong foundation of prayer for them for now and for their future. No one else can do this for me, I get to be in the presence of God on behalf of my children as their mother. I want to encourage my peers to do the same. 

"Contentment before thankfulness." 
• The constant struggle I have is to find contentment in different areas of my life. I compare my real life to others' virtual lives. I know there's a big difference. Case and point, I posted a photo of my family putting a puzzle together on Instagram. It looked so cute. We took another picture of what was really happening and never posted. In the second picture, my youngest was under the table untying my husband's shoes. My older two were losing interest in the puzzle. My hubby had told me the puzzle was for much older kids which means he was doing all the work while the kids threw the puzzles around. Our virtual life is so different than our real lives. Comparison is like poison to the water of contentment. This morning I was reminded that I needed to be more thankful in every circumstance. The key is to be content and in order to have that, I need to stop comparing myself to other people's virtual lives. 

I hope you have a great weekend friends!
