It just really isn’t all about me–the secret to embracing joy!

As I look back over the seasons of my life, I often struggled because I did not understand some very important truths that are foundational to Spiritual health through out all the ages. It’s a pretty simple and straightforward concept–but sometimes very hard to comprehend.

Joy comes through exercising faith right on the path where God has led. Faith catalyzes Joy as we worship by choosing to see God right in our midst, at this place, in this step of life.

    WOW! So good! Thank you! I so desire the heart of abandonment to God…oh, guess what? I read the VERY same bit from Tozer this morning…

    God is so good!

    Just wanted to say I look forward to these videos every week! They are such a balm for my weary soul and a blessing to sit and have a cup of tea with you- a godly woman much farther along the path in this great adventure of life. I praise God for the wisdom and insight He has revealed to you and that you take the time and make the effort to share it with us moms. The Lord bless you and yours!

    Oh Sally! Tears came as I just listened to your message. I am exactly where you spoke about. I would love to meet you one day. There has been so much that has happened in my life in the last few years and I have had a hard time with it all. I need to say that I have grown children too. Being content in the seasons of life, along with all that inhabits… is sometimes hard to do.
    Thank you for your sensitivity to God to speak what I so needed.

    Thank you Sally – wise and gentle words to feed hope in our present circumstance – there is peace and joy found, or restored, when we submit to the will and way of Christ.

    Nurturing my mother’s heart and soul again…, just a short note to tell you how important your message truly is (because we NEED to continually be reminded of these truths that you speak of)….I am currently trying to finish my nursing degree, (because my husband was/has been deathly ill at the beginning of this yr due to chemical exposure in the Gulf War) but I struggle with the “neglect” of my children/family, the schooling requires. I feel I am doing nothing well…, I continually pray about this choice I have made, and have placed it in Gods Hands- truly knowing that if I stop the schooling, it will ultimately be a “win-win” situation. Truly, we all need money, but the extra income from the “upgrade” my degree would provide, is NOT the most important component of “providing” for my children… There is so much more, the nurturing that I can offer is equally important (if not MORE) than the material possessions…(just needed to spill my thoughts here- THANK YOU again! <3 )

    Thank you Sally. I’ve been following your site and reading your books since the Mission of Motherhood study. I stumbled upon your site through Holy Experience. I just want to say “thank you” from my heart, because listening to your video clips are like sitting down for tea with an encouraging mom (that i don’t have), but God had provided. Your words are always timely and encouraging. Going to conference in CA and invited some friends:) very excited about it!

    Dear Sally,

    I too have been enjoying these videos. Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us! I am reading The Mission of Motherhood, and I am so glad to have found you early in my mothering journey, with a 2 year old and one on the way. I always enjoy your blog and God has used it to speak to me often, although I don’t usually comment. God bless you!
