In my devotion I have to change my ways.The way I talk and dress and also the things I do. I'm glad because I have a little girl who looks up to me. She imitates the things I do.Shes very curious of the way Ive changed already. She watches me pray,sing and read the word.Samara says," I'm so proud of you mom!" In her eyes I'm succeeding already.I love that! I want to be a good mother and role model for her.One day my daughter had fever blisters in her mouth. She cried for a couple days I tried putting salt and peroxide in her mouth nothing worked.I told her "lets pray well do it together."We got on our knees and prayed the next day they were gone. She was so happy she said " IT WORKED!" I love you Jesus!Now when i read the bible she wants to also.She wants to learn so I'm teaching her bible verses. I'm so happy she has already memorized one! I want to teach her the best way of life. So in the future she know better than I did. She wont end up the places I did or around the kind of people I was around.She always complains that she scared at night and of monsters. So I'm teaching her the armor of god! In Ephesians 6:14 it says stand firm with then, with the belt of truth buckled at your waist,with the breastplate of righteousness in place,and with your feet fitted with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this take up the shield of faith,with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit,which is the word of god. She gets the concept of it that she can fight all the things that scare her with the armor of god! She puts it on when shes scared.It gives her confidence this is her favorite thing Ive taught her.This still helps me to this day!!I'm glad she wants to be like me!! She tells me I want to find a friend like you mom! Shes changed to now shes a little more girly. She was a big tomboy before we came to church and now shes wants dresses. Shes a little more friendly too!Our devotion is changing us for the better!!
