What is this thing Raising Inspiration?
Raising Inspiration is a place for Christian moms to come and be inspired, challenged, encouraged spiritually. Motherhood is hard work, no one ever said it was easy, but no matter what it is one of the most rewarding tasks before us. As a mom our lives can be full of laughter, tears, organization, chaos, spit-up, diapers and a pile of laundry. It can be difficult to find a moment alone to spend with our Father who has given us this beautiful life. God has placed it on my heart to start this blog so that Christian moms can come together and not only be inspired and encourage but also spend some time with Him all while forming a community. Each of our lives are different, our families and children are all unique to us but one thing is common for us all and that is Christ and the need we have to spend time with Him!
A True Understanding of Love
This November I became a mom for the first time. What a joyful day that was! The moment I saw my son and felt the overwhelming and unconditional love for him something clicked inside me. I love my son with all my heart, there is nothing I would not do for him and there is nothing he could ever do that would change my love for him, and this is how God loves me and yet even more! I am a child of the almighty God and he loves me as his child! I have always known God loved me but the extent of that love was almost not as real to me until I became a parent myself. There is nothing that I can ever do that will change God’s love for me nor is there anything that I can do that will make him stop loving me. We are his children. That will not change just as your son or daughter will always be your children. When you look into the face of your child today and feel how much you love them think about how God is doing the same thing today when he looks at you! Your Father loves you unconditionally!
“You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.” 1 Thessalonians 5:5 (NIV)
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1 (NIV)
