Mommy Moment Monday: Helping or Hindering?

Yes folks, gone are the days of Menu Plan Monday, at least for right now. Last week I realized I wanted to not focus so much ahead on what food would be prepared. I will face it one day at a time. Yesterday, I felt God giving me the "monday post" agenda for a while, and it is with Mommy Moments.

 It was impressed upon me yesterday that our children are ready to press forward in their faith, and I seem to be the one hindering them. I am heartbroken at this revelation!! The kids desire to go to prayer meeting on Wednesday nights ~ and while I long to as well, I also adore the end of the day at home. This fall, we were unable to even think of attending because the girl had volleyball practice at 6:45 am on Thursday mornings, and most Wednesday nights we go to prayer meeting usually leads us back home around 9.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV
On Wednesday nights, the youth meet. This is often the only time besides a 9:00 class on Sunday that Kristen gets to associate with the youth. I have held her back! Out of what?! FEAR! Fear she wouldn't get enough rest. Do you know how silly that sounds? God WILL give her the rest she needs.

Mommy moments are not always easy and peachy keen are they? They are a HARD choice at times. They are not easy to digest. They are very mirror reflective on our own heart.
