Psalms 3:5 SOAP

Scripture

Psalm 3:5 (NASB)


5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustains me.

Observation:
No matter how many times my soul gets beat down, the LORD sustains my spirit and supports me on getting back up and fighting the fight.

Application:
When life throws me a curve ball, I have to remember that the LORD is there supporting me through it all. I have to remember to fully lean on Him.

Prayer:
Dear LORD – please help me to remember you in times of strife. Lord, God please remind me that I am stronger with you on my side. Lord please help me lean on you fully. Amen.

Psalms4:6 SOAP

Day 2 of Psalms in 60 days.
Scripture

Psalm 4:7 (New American Standard Bible)

    7You have put gladness in my heart,
         More than when their grain and new wine abound.

Observation
God puts gladness on our hearts more than material objects.

Application
Remember that the next newest thing isn’t better then the gladness God puts in my heart. As gladness with material objects is temporary and short term; God’s gladness is everlasting. 

Prayer
Dear LORD – Thank you for the wonderful scripture this afternoon! Thank you O God for reminding me that you are the one who puts the true gladness in my heart, not these tangible items here on Earth. Amen.

additional scriptures referenced to this one:

Psalm 97:11

    11Light is sown like seed for the righteous
         And gladness for the upright in heart.

Psalm 97:12

    12Be glad in the LORD, you righteous ones,
         And give thanks to His holy name.

Acts 14:17


 17and yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.”

Our husbands should come before our selves

iFellowship
Philippians 2:3 (New American Standard Bible)

3Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;
The LORD asks us to regard others as more important than ourselves; other’s needs come before our own selfish wants. For me this means doing the dishes, even if I don’t want to, because my husband likes a clean kitchen. Folding the laundry, even if I don’t want to, because my husband likes clean clothes. I’m not saying that he NEVER does this. I am a stay at home mom and these are my jobs. Yes he does them and that is my own fault and selfishness coming through. We humans aren’t perfect after all. I have been trying to be better since I read this scripture though; I think this is what matters…that we try with a happy heart to put others before ourselves.
So instead of viewing it like “oh he’s so lazy, he doesn’t do anything around the house.” think about this scripture and think “God would like it if I did this.” Our ultimate goal is to please God.

Sunday SOAP: Do not be lazy!

I got the SOAP idea from Amy at Mom’s Toolbox.

Scripture:

Proverbs 31:17

17 She sets about her work vigorously;


her arms are strong for her tasks.

Observation:

I honestly think God is trying to tell me to stop being a lazy wife a mother. When I clean around the house it is rarely with a servants heart.

Application:

I need to make sure I pray before I do any type of housework. I need to be reminded of why I am a stay at home mom and what that entails. I have a job to do. Yea, I don’t get paid monetarily…but the payment I recieve in the littlest 2 sets of eyes is way more then money could buy. I know my husband appreciates a clean home and doesn’t want to have to deal with it when he gets home. I have been so lazy and selfish lately.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, please be with me while I embark on a new adventure of homemaking. Please help me in changing my selfish ways. Help me be the wife and mother you intended me to be and who my husband and children need me to be. Amen

Scripture Sunday

I am doing something different today. I’m just going to open my book and point to a place on the page without looking and that will be today’s scripture. So here we go….drum roll please……..Romans 12:2 (NASB)

 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the   renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Wow. I really needed to read this scripture. I have a problem with getting caught up in what the world has to offer. I sometimes loose sight of what I’m supposed to do on this earth. I still haven’t figured out my ultimate plan. and I never will know. But what I know is true in my life right now…I am meant to stay home a grow Godly children.
What about you? What is your purpose in life right this minute. Comment about it. 🙂 Or post about it and include a link to my page.
