Sometimes as single moms we just need a good reminder of what it looks like to be wise. I love Proverbs 17:22 – “A joyful heart is good medicine but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” So what steps can we take to cultivate a spirit-filled heart when our soul feels downcast? We need to “LAF” – and I don’t mean “laugh” … but LAF.
- L= Let go of the past by learning from it and trusting the Father for what’s ahead.
- A=Accept “what is” by leaning on Christ for a new perspective.
- F= Focus on the future by opening the window for the Holy Spirit to unfold His “greater” in you.
“LAF-ter” sets you on the pathway to God’s something new. Go ahead. Take the first step. God is enabling you to the discovery of His joy.
