Hope In God's Word

Posted by   + Show Post
Being a stepmom can be so overwhelming. Since we are Christian stepmoms, let's encourage each other with God's Word. Maybe this week we can share scriptures that have sustained us in this difficult role, or search the Bible this week for these scriptures. We can just keep adding to them and always have a post that we can turn to when we need encouragement.

Two that come to mind for me right now are these:

Psalm 84:6 "As they go through the Valley of Baca (weeping), they make it a place of springs." Thank you, Jesus, for the refreshment you bring in this wilderness of stepparenting!

Psalm 16:11 "You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
I'm thankful that being in blended family is not all trials and sorrow. As we soak in God's presence through reading the Bible, prayer, and worship, Jesus shows us more clearly his love and grace, and brings joy to our families.

The verse that means the most to me is:

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to proper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

When my family finally seemed to be coming together and we were moving forward in our lifes, my sd, age 26, moved in with us and has turned the whole house upside down. 

This verse is one that I keep coming back to because God knows the reasons and knows the outcomes and he has not allowed this to happen to hurt our family but to bring about some good even though I can't see it now.  Every day is a challenge. Every day there is something new that she has done that I can't understand what in the world she is thinking.  We are to be God's light to her and this verse has helped me not to lash out when I so want to.
