God’s child. My earthly son for too brief of a time.
My Young Living story has my son Jake weaved throughout the whole thing. In the beginning, he had a mom who served chili dogs and boxed macaroni & cheese. For most of his life I was the “healthy” mom. There’s something about being a mom that stirs a desire in me for wanting the best for my kids. My job was/is to care for them.
My firstborn were twins with Jacob being one of them. They experienced my victories and fumbles in the natural lifestyle. Some things were keepers, others not so much. The accident my boys were in is the reason I switched to Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils. He didn’t get to experience me finally finding the company and products that work.
Not being able to have helped my son is an indescribable feeling. That is what drives me to try and help others. One life at a time. Each person that finds healing emotionally, physically or spiritually by me sharing my story helps ease my hurt mama heart. Jake’s life was tragically cut short but by helping others, it helps me. I won’t be crushed by the enemy. I will keep my eyes on Jesus and continue to share.
Everyone only gets one life. Our earthly time is short. Our eternal time is forever. If you think about it, everything is a commitment. Either you commit to a life of chaos or you commit to trying every day to be more like our Savior. It’s a choice. I encourage you to choose to step over the excuses and to spend a few moments reading 2 Corinthians 5.
1 John 5:19-20
We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the power and control of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we are in God because we are in his son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.
