Do you get up early in the morning just to have a little bit of quiet before the day starts? Is your favorite time of the day when it’s still dark outside and you can hear the frogs and crickets in the distance and little ones snoozing in the next room? Then you’re probably a mom. Welcome to the Unperfected Mom podcast. A place where we can get together in God’s word and learn about our place in this world through His scripture.
Sometimes we face a fire that seems so hard, so all-consuming that we miss the gift it is. Today we will look at how God can use a fire to grab our attention, equip us, and even redirect us. Join me as we study Exodus 3:1-4.
*This episode deals with current events and may be upsetting. However, we are called to speak truth and not be afraid of speaking up.
This episode is centred on Proverbs 1:7 and 9:10.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 ESV
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 ASV
Fear of the Lord as it is found in Proverbs 1:7 and 9:10 comes from the Hebrew word Yirah. This word means reverence, respect, and awe. Scripture tells us that when we are in awe of God, respect Him, and stand in reverence of Him, we can then be given the spiritual gift of wisdom. Did you know that wisdom is a spiritual gift?
This week we discuss why the fear of the Lord is so important, wisdom and knowledge. With wisdom, comes righteous decisions. Like most of you, I am saddened by what has been happening in the United States for some time now, and this week was another gut punch. Although I have been registered in a political party for voting purposes, I am a Christian. My political party does not dictate my actions; my faith, my relationship with Jesus Christ does. I challenge you to study Proverbs this week with me to focus on the fear of the Lord to help us become wise in His sight.
Can I be honest? Trusting God is hard. I mean, really hard. I have to remind myself on a regular basis that He is worthy of my trust. Why is it so hard to trust? Because we're not perfect and we make mistakes. But the great thing is, God is perfect and he gives us guidance on how we can trust him (and why)!

No matter who you voted for, no matter if you favor blue or red, we're all called to be citizens of Heaven. This week we look at Hebrews 4:14-16 and how Jesus has already prepared a place for us in Heaven and what that means for us.
