There have been some really good posts lately about what our main focus should be as mothers, wives and teachers. They are reminders of where our hearts should be on the key issues of our lives. Being submitted to the Lord and our husbands. Keeping our hands to the plow. Not forsaking fellowship. Truly embracing our 'ministry' with our whole hearts. Not looking back. Pressing on toward our high call in Christ. Setting our face like flint. Holding up our sheild of protection. Walking in wisdom, mercy, grace and obedience. Knowing who we are and where we stand in Christ. The list goes on…
In this day with all of the chaos and confusion rising against the home, the family and homeschooling we need to remind ourselves where we stand so we are not lead astray and discouraged. We need to settle in our hearts where our priorities are and how we can stay true to the convictions that drive us to be the voice of wisdom and love to the opposing viewpoint. The reality is that we all have days and moments like this: where all seems to fail and the vision for our families becomes blurred. We mustn't let our guard down. We must seek encouragement and cousel from other likeminded people that the Lord has put on our paths to hold us up and guide us. Stay in the word, stay on your knees, continue in fellowship and lean ever closer to your husband and Lord.
Here are a few links that really impressed upon my heart this time of focusing. I hope you find wisdom and encouragement through these. May the Lord richly bless your day and be ever present in your life. Also, a very big thank you to these bloggers for permission to link to their sites!
