Joy comes…..

Many may not want to agree, especially in today’s culture but our duty as christian wives/mom is our home first. Before all other things, NOTHING should come before the ministry God has placed in your home. Think about it, you have to most important “career” of your life. The little boy who ran to you with delight and face smeared with chocolate and dirt, he will grow to be a leader, a father, pastor, missionary, he will grow from a toddler in love with dinosaurs and superheroes to a man in pursuit to impact others with the love of Christ. It is because of you, mom! It started from your home. Every meal cooked, every cake baked, every “boo-boo” kissed, and every tear wiped. You are the CEO of your domain. The queen in your palace. The sturdy bricks to a fortress. Because of you, there is peace when your husband comes home. You are a safe place for your children to rest. This role is a mighty role and you are a mighty warrior!!!

…Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future….

God wants you to be a joyful and fulfilled wife. Because God’s understanding is unlimited, he knows what you desire and need. He considers all the ramifications. Joy and fulfillment comes as you anticipate what God has planned. A sense of fulfillment of what you accomplished is good, and your husband and children to praise you are just part of the joy that God wants you to experience. The hugs and kisses, I love yous, those little fingers reaching out for you is the great fulfillment of joy. My heart gleams at the sight of my little ones even my oldest (when its cool to hug your not-so-cool mom).

God has prepared good works for you. Walk worthy in your role!

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them”

Ephesians 2:10
