I am very excited to be joining the Good Morning Girls who are hosting the read along of the Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson. My friend Jolanthe at No Ordinary Moments has started a Ministry of Motherhood accountability group ~ so very glad she started this! This week we started reading assigned bible verses and using the S.O.A.P. Method.
The S.O.A.P. Method stands for:
- S - Write out the scripture passage for the day.
- O - Write down 1 or 2 observations from the passage.
- A - Write down 1-2 applications from the passage.
- P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage.
John 15: 4-5 really spoke to me this week:
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
So often I feel like I am alone and struggling with simple day to day things. This verse reminds me that he is ALWAYS with me. If I become stubborn and try and break away I will continue to struggle and most likely fail. I want my kids to see me seeking God in ALL things, not just when life gets difficult!
I can’t wait to see what God gives me as I start reading the Ministry of Motherhood.
