Mom’s TEA CUPP Prayers…Coming Soon!

Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters…
Isaiah 55:1 (NKJV)

I’m so excited about my new book that I just have to tell you about it today!  Coming this fall, Mom’s TEA CUPP Prayers!  In this companion to My TEA CUPP Prayers, I share devotions for moms to draw you into a daily TEA time with Jesus, blessing your children and homes for all eternity.  Please join me in praising Jesus for His faithfulness, taking another prayer and making it a miracle.  Here’s a tidbit from the back cover:

Mom’s TEA CUPP Prayers is an invitation to moms everywhere to sit down each day with Jesus, a Bible, and a cup of tea.  The TEA CUPP is an acronym for parts of prayer, as we pour out our hearts to the Lord.  God’s Word is the basis for Thanksgiving, Exalting, Admitting, Calling, Understanding, claiming God’s Promises, and Petitioning.

Jennifer Grace takes every day examples of being a mom and relates them to God’s truth in His Word.  Jennifer Grace is a wife, mom, grandma, runner, scrapbooker, prayer warrior, but most of all, God’s daughter.  Through the joys and sorrows of life, she finds lessons in faith, weaving it together with God’s Word.

Mom’s TEA CUPP Prayers calls another generation of moms to the foot of the cross in prayer.  A lady who sits with Jesus each morning for tea will honor the Father, glorify the Son, and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, impact her husband, children, neighborhood, community and world.

Come quench your thirsty soul!

To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen. 
Jude 25 (NKJV)

Toothpaste Troubles

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20  (NKJV)

I am thankful for morning sickness.  Morning sickness reminds me of the beautiful baby growing inside of me, an eleven year prayer finally answered!  However, morning sickness makes me, well…sick!

I’ve never been this sick before with my other pregnancies.  The littlest things can make me ill…like toothpaste.

Toothpaste, the mint cream that keeps away cavities, was always so refreshing before I became pregnant.  Now, the smallest amount caught in the back of my mouth, can cause me to lose my supper, rendering my tooth brushing efforts useless.

This little tube called toothpaste makes me wonder, are there other things in life that seem beneficial, but may become hazardous?  For example, cell phones and Facebook keep us in touch with friends and allow us to call for help, truly quite useful.  But do they take us away from quiet time with Jesus?  I have a niece who gave up Facebook for Lent (good job, Emily!).  What else steals our time…the internet, morning paper, soap operas, movies, sports??  Perhaps we need to give them up regularly for time with the Lord.

I know I still need to use my toothpaste to keep away cavities, but I go easy on it now.  Let’s also “go easy” on these other distractions that may be necessary, but can be harmful to our spiritual lives.

Today’s TEA CUPP: What necessity in your life is actually hurtful right now?  What is keeping you from a pure walk with Jesus?  Give it to Him!  Give it up!

And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. Matthew 5:30  (NKJV)
