I May Never Be Perfect

What a beautiful and glorious day here in Northwest Georgia. I just finished listening to an inspirational message about mother’s from dare I say my favorite evangelist, Chad Garrett at IndianLand church of Christ (churchofchristindianland.org) and I felt encouraged to write a post about the importance and necessity of biblical mothers in 2021.

As a divorced mother of two children, I feel like I am failing most days. Almost like, I just can’t get it all done even though in my heart I desire to do so. Going back in time I could never have imagined that at this stage of my life, it would still be this hard, but it is. Because well my son, has health challenges that require much more of me than the typical child would need at the age of ten.

Please don’t see this as a complaint or resentment, it is just a reflection of what is and my everyday reality. This is part of my story. But I don’t plan to be defined by it. My daily is prayer is that God will give me just what I need for each day ahead and that I will be grateful. That is what I want and need.

I want to count it all a joy, when the laundry is clean but not folded. I want to count it all joy, when we have good nourishing food to eat, but maybe the pots don’t get washed and put away immediately following. I want to count it all a joy, when maybe we didn’t finish the lessons that we planned for the day, but my daughter mastered whatever we did cover.

I want to believe that my children will know that in my failures, I never gave up or walked away. That even in my exhaustion, I put my faith in God and believed that He would give me the provisions for one more day. Even when I can’t process another step in my weary mind.

A scripture that I’ve read many times stood out to me today, because well maybe it was what God especially needed me to hear because the last week has been so brutal (a story for another day). It says this, “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

That is the point, the woman who puts all of her faith in God is able to do all the things. While I fall short often, I am thankful and grateful that God gives me grace and forgiveness.

I want to encourage you as a wife, mother, or wherever you are in your life to believe that you matter and are loved, no matter how messy you believe your life to be. You are far more precious than rubies and you cannot be replaced.

God needs more mothers to put Him first as an example to her husband and to her children. We may never be perfect, but we can certainly be complete in Christ Jesus.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Happy Mother’s Day!

Life, but abundant!

Wow! Just three short years ago, I said yes to feeling better. I said yes, to being able to sleep through the night, I said yes to better digestive health and debilitating fatigue.

I didn’t know then what that yes, would blossom into, but I just knew that I wanted to feel better because I wasn’t living, I was merely surviving and that wasn’t good enough.

Since that time, my health is on track, I am building a legacy business. I am in school working towards my functional nutrition certification and best of all I am available for the most important people in my life, my children.

I want to encourage you to do the same, if you’re struggling with your health, your finances, your relationships, I invite you to be a part of tribe of women (and men), who are doing all the things without the hustle or sacrifice. Just surviving is not where it’s at.
Living abundantly is!

It’s time to say, yes!!

Living life to the full,

Leadership Retreat 2021

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

How do you know that you have landed in the right place?

When you show up in a place you’ve never been and spend the weekend with Facebook friends that you have never met and they love on you like Jesus would and they talk about how the foundation of our businesses should be built upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ.
And then you spend an evening sitting together to sing hymnals and to pray and share testimonies.

When I got on that road to Tennessee last Thursday, I was excited to meet up with my team to learn all the things to build my Plexus business, my pen and notepad were ready.
Instead what I learned was how to love more and how to serve more, so that God could be glorified by this business.

I know, I have heard the comments, many of which are valid, but at it’s core, this business is about serving and giving and growing in Christ.

My heart is overflowing from all the laughter, hugs and genuine love that I have never experienced in all my years of working.
If you want hope and an opportunity to love and to serve, then I am inviting you to a experience a better way.

With love,

AngelaChristine
