Hang in there, Mom!

Have you had a day filled with driving carpools and assigning time-outs? Of homeschooling, overseeing homework, and making sure chores get done? If so, reminding you that children are a blessing from God probably isn’t what you need to hear right now! Or – is it?

Psalm 127:3 says, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord.” That “behold” is a huge exclamation mark! Children are a blessing, and motherhood is a privilege. Setting aside the reality of a bad day, how do you feel about your children? Do you cherish them? I’m guessing you do. Sometimes you just need a little reminder.

Your children are created in God’s image. And you have the privilege of teaching them, training them, loving them, and prizing them! I want to encourage you on the good days and the bad-that as a mom after God’s own heart, a mom who loves and cares for your children, you are right in the center of God’s perfect will.

Into my hands and heart You, my all-wise Father, have deposited Your gift of my precious children. When I wonder how on earth I can manage, remind me to look to You for perspective, patience, and a growing capacity to love and cherish my children—even more! Amen.

Seeing the Power of Commitment

“How can anything be so thrilling and yet so sobering?” This question was repeated over and over in my heart as Jim and I celebrated yet another military change of command for a dear friend and neighbor. The parade ground was packed with troops in formation who had been standing there for well over an hour before the ceremony even began.

God’s Will in the Workplace

Over the years, people have often asked me how they could “know” God’s will for their career. They thought if they had that answer, they would get a much clearer perspective on their jobs and their direction in life. I tell them God’s will regarding their work isn’t some mystical revelation they have to hunt for. Rather, it’s spelled out clearly in the Bible.

They Shall Rise and Call Her Blessed

by Elizabeth George July 26, 2022

I've studied the verses of Proverbs 31 for many years. This woman has at times both intimidated and inspired me. While it took me years to begin to understand the purpose of these passages, I have always prayed for my husband and children to fulfill Proverbs 31:28, which says, “Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also.”
