God In The Everyday, As Seen By A Busy Mom



Psalm 18, 48, 78, 108, 138 (Through My Mommy Lenses)

(My personal insight on these verses)
Psalm 18:31-39  
For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. (Because Lord knows, I am FAR from it)
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; (I can jump over that mound of laundry on my bedroom floor with the best of them, and answer the phone before the machine beats me to it
he enables me to stand on the heights. (or stools, or countertops, or the occasional wall scaling when I am in too big of a hurry to find the stool) 

He trains my hands for battle; (My daughters mane of tangles is a vicious battle field.my arms can bend a bow of bronze.(And can overpower the can of biscuits and eventually get the dang thing to pop open.) 

You give me your shield of victory, (sometimes in the form of a pizza box... dinner is done... victory!) and your right hand sustains me; 
you stoop down to make me great. (You must. Because no matter how retarded my dance moves, my kids still seem to think I am awesome!) 
You broaden the path beneath me, (Because after 5 chocolate bars in one day a girl needs a little help fitting down that path) so that my ankles do not turn. (And my knees do not buckle)
I pursued my enemies (the dust bunnies) and overtook them; (blast those dust bunniesI did not turn back till they were destroyed. (Evil, evil dust bunnies) I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. (and were swiftly swept under the rug until another day) 

You armed me with strength for battle; (for the day that the telemarketers would callyou made my adversaries bow at my feet. (I think I even heard one of them sniffling by the time we hung up)
I’ve said it before, I love that I serve a God who dwells on high but can also be found at rock bottom!  He can also be found in the chaotic, everyday world of a stay at home mom! (Who just so happens to hate dust bunnies!)
