Since my last post, I have been considered deeply what the CALL OF GOD is on my life. I am a child of God. I am a wife. I am a mother. That’s a simplified list, but where the Lord is wanting me to focus right now.
As a child of God, my first calling is to seek out my Father. This is my privilege, to be a child of the King. I ought not to take this lightly. He seeks me out, He pursues me with His love, I am the apple of His eye. He desires to hear my heart and to pour into me. He has absolutely everything I could ever need for this life. 2 Peter 1:3 “…His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us…” Jesus should always be my top priority. Not only if it’s convenient. Not only if I feel “spiritual”. Not only if I’m desperate. Not only if I’m blessed. Always. Every day. Day in and day out.
I am a wife. I’ve got a great husband. I didn’t say perfect 🙂 but he is great. He loves Jesus more than he loves me. He loves me with all his heart, and I don’t deserve it. He loves our five children. He works hard for Jesus. Serves His people faithfully. He works hard for his family. And I am the one that God gave him to care for him, cook for him, wash his clothes, clean his house, love him selflessly, above my own needs or wants. Honestly, because he is an adult, and with five little ones running around needing me to care for their needs, it is real easy to let my husband’s needs slip to the bottom of the list. And that’s not right. Nor acceptable. 1 Corinthians 7:34″ … she who is married cares about the things of the world–how she may please [her] husband.” So, Jesus first; my husband needs to be second.
And next… the call of God to be a mother.
Since this call is pressing in on me now, check back in a few days! I’ll share some of my thoughts and vision that God has given me for being a godly mother.
