The MOPS International 2023-2024 theme is…
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…
Zechariah 4:10 NLT
Have you ever gotten to the end of a week, month or year and thought, “How did I get here? Where has the time gone?” It happens in our parenting, friendships, marriage and work- we get caught up in the urgent demands of the day-to-day, and then years go by, and we realize we haven’t been making the small choices that will get us where we actually wanted to be. So this is the year to make some moves. Say “Yes.”
James 1:2-4 NIV
Now is your opportunity to develop a spirit of adventure and make new memories. Now is your chance to invite your kids along for the thrill that comes with doing hard things. You are wildly capable. Get uncomfortable. Persevere and say yes to the next small brave step God asks you to take.
Psalm 18:19 NIV
Sometimes, fun is the first thing to go between parenting, paying bills, and worrying about doing things right. All of that changes this year. Because God delights in us, we will delight in the life we’ve been given. God, help us be easily delighted with the small things because the small things are the big things.
Matthew 6:26-27 NIV
This is the year to uproot our anxiety, worry and hurry. Instead, this is the season of trusting that God is providing for our every need, and that means we can tend to the home, kids, marriage, friendships, neighborhood, and work that God has given us and have the time of our lives doing it.
