I figure if I was Supermom, I could do it. I'd get up early in the morning (because supermoms need next to no sleep) and get all ready for the day. I could move food, dirty dishes, laundry, and toys with my eyes all at the same time - while doing a pilates workout in the living room. By the time Caleb woke up to go to school, the house would be spotless, I'd be showered with makeup on and hair done and have already excersized and read my Bible. Eggs, bacon, and toast would be waiting on the table with a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. Once Caleb left I'd be free to play with the kids all day. We'd go on educational outings, bake cookies together, do plays, run through the sprinkler.
Just writing this makes me laugh! It's so unrealistic. But, here's what IS real.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. (Eph. 1:18-20)
Did you catch that? I have the same power in me that raised Jesus from the dead and seated him next to God in heaven! Unlimited, supernatural power! That doesn't mean that I can move things with my eyes - or that I'm likely to greet Caleb with a clean house, makeup, and a hot breakfast on Monday morning. But it does mean that God has fully equipped me to do the work that He's given me to do - all with His power working through me.
I needed to hear that today.
