My Ministry, Most Precious to me

                        Motherhood is a full time job and I choose to be a stay-at-home Mom. I take great honor in that and sadly, I have not always thought this way. I understand every woman has a different situation and some Moms have to work and leave the home. Whatever, God has called each of us to do, let us do it with His great strength and honor. I'm pressing on each day asking for God's endless mercy, grace, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. I have a deep desire to live my life for the glory of God and the truth is, I fail miserably at times and I'm not always the wife or mother I wish and dream to be. I miss the mark, I stumble, and/or I lose patience. I am desperately in need of mercy and grace. Our Heavenly Father is so patient with us, slow to anger and abounding in love {Psalm 103:8}. How much more should I be patient with my dear husband and children? They are my ministry and my sweet blessings in life. The truth is they show me how to love unconditionally, they show me how to give grace, give mercy, and be selfless and mostly, they show me how to truly exemplify Christ. It is the ministry that is giving me life, it truly teaches me to be that godly virtuous woman who is set apart for her Lord {Psalm 4:3}. It's not about me, it's all about God and His marvelous plan unfolding. Lord, change me ...

When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. (Proverbs 31:26-31 NLT)
