1 Corinthians 13:12 NLT Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
Here is more of the same passage in the Message Translation:
1 Corinthians 13:8-10 MSG Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.
12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!
As a full-time, commuting, working mom of 3 beloved kids, I NEED God’s grace every single day. I have an amazing supportive as well as practically helpful husband (who actually cooks dinner every night!) and together we are learning the joys of parenting teenagers with Kaitlin (16), Nathan (14) and Faith (12).
Although there are a lot of blogs out there of christian women, the majority are SAHMs. I intended to start a blog to encourage christian moms who work outside the home, because I know I could use that kind of encouragement! But then I was just too exhausted to write anything for it. And I realized why there aren’t too many blogs out there for christian moms who work outside the home… So for now, it is just going to be my journey.
I like Ann Voskamp’s line – #preachingtomyself – which is what this blog is for now.
Things I think I will write about
– the struggles of a full-time working christian mom of teens, balancing life, finding real rest
– God’s Word, my favourite verses, Bible Quizzing
– maintaining a sense of humour
My Life Verse (for now – haha!)
11 [The Lord God says] And the redeemed of the Lord shall return and come with singing to Zion; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
12 I, even I, am He Who comforts you.
