We have been bit by the flu bug at our house. I've had a very unusual morning! Our schedule has gone out the window and the two older children have had to make do without my supervision. They are being very responsible though and getting their school work done.
This brings me to a verse that God has layed on my heart again lately. How many of you are moms or wives with responsibilities and more importantly, how many of you count that as your greatest ministry? Allow me to share a verse that could encourage your heart as you carry on this ministry in your home...
II Corinthians 12:10 says " Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."
What a joy that could be ours when we learn to take pleasure in those necessities that we moms and wives face, knowing that as we do them, we are doing them for Christ's sake.... I'm reminding myself about this as I write!
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
