Sweet Mom, at life’s very end, when I stand before Jesus, I want to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant”. When I meditate on this life vision, it fulfills the deepest passion of my heart. You know what? I’m absolutely sure you desire to hear those words too!
Living life with eternity in mind helps us to stay focused or single-minded to our heavenly calling as mothers and wives! It keeps us committed in His love, to stay humble, stay hopeful and to stay faithful and accountable! Staying, even when it would be so much easier to check out or give up!
I love Philippians 3:12-14:
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
This, my friend, is why I highly recommend our brand new Help Club Bible study devotional called, “The Wise Woman Stays”. “Staying” as a wife and Mom is the over-shadowing theme of the whole book! Ladies, this one will help you live faithful and steadfast unto Jesus through the tough times in your life, to stick it out and press on to the finish line, though you may feel like quitting.
Are you ready like I am, to forget what’s behind and strain toward what’s ahead? Is your heart ready to run the race of motherhood (and marriage) beyond what the world offers and above the status quo? I encourage you to grab your own copy on Amazon. The study begins on June 3rd. Encourage a few of your friends to join you, because together you’ll grow in Jesus as you study. It will help you “finish well”.
I can’t wait to do this study with you!
