There are times in my day when I must preach The Gospel to myself. Sometimes I can not find the words. A dear friend of mine sent this quote to me in an email this week. It is the perfect amount of encouragement. I hope you mothers are encouraged too!
“Live the gospel in the things that no one sees. Sacrifice for your children in places that only they will know about. Put their value ahead of yours. Grow them up in the clean air of gospel living. Your testimony to the gospel in the little details of your life is more valuable to them than you can imagine. If you tell them the gospel, but live to yourself, they will never believe it. Give your life for theirs every day, joyfully. Lay down pettiness. Lay down fussiness. Lay down resentment about the dishes, about the laundry, about how no one knows how hard you work.
Stop clinging to yourself and cling to the cross..” – Rachel Jankovic at www.DesiringGod.org
