EVEN SUPER MOM NEEDS TO KNOW WHEN TO BE STILL

Greetings, my friends!

I am sitting here thinking about my children and how often they refer to me as "Super Mom". This came about because I am always on the go with one or both of them, in addition to working full-time, and having a ministry serving women and their families.

I find that there are "super moms" and "super women", and we are always on the go! We are always bustling here; bustling there; and hustling here and there. We are at work multi-tasking, taking the children to their practices and their games, attending PTA meetings, taking care of the household, and when we do get around to taking a break, we realized that we need a Word from the Lord; we need a blessing from the Lord to carry us through; and we needed it like yesterday!

As this month of March is being celebrated as Women's Month, my hat goes off to God's women who are making a positive difference at home, at school, at work, at church, and in their communities. However, even God's women, the Super Moms, the First Lady of a church get discouraged; get tired; get hell on the job and off the job; and get stricken with sickness. A God's woman knows that when all hell breaks loose, she has to take time out and just be still so she can get that Word and receive that blessing from the Lord.

When we are in dire need of help, when the enemy is attacking from every side, when lies are told on us, when sickness overtakes our bodies, we just need to be still. We do not need to take on everything and everyone all by ourselves.God is bigger than any Superman or Superwoman. Psalm 46:10 tells us, "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth." (KJV)
When we are still, we are able to hear God's answer, we are able to receive HIS blessing, and we are able to interpret and understand HIS Word. When we are still, God will be glorified through our stillness because we are letting go and letting HIM be God all by Himself. Sisters, we know that we have responsibilities like no other. However, sometimes God just wants us to be still so HE can take care of us, spiritually, physically, financially, and emotionally. When we take time out, we can go to the Lord in prayer. We know what the Apostle Paul encourages us in Philippians 4:6-7. He tells us to "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (KJV) Glory. When we are still, and let God, our hearts and our minds will be stayed on Jesus Christ! We will have that peace that is even unspeakable. Hallelujah.

Sisters, it is okay for us to take off our "Super Mom" or "Superwoman" cape. You see, God is the only SUPER! Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day and for ever. (Hebrews 13:8, KJV) Amen.
