How To Be the “Mother of the Bride” Twice in 6 Weeks…

This morning my mom who is 77-years-old ran through the house shouting “Wedding Bells are Ringing! Wedding Bells are Ringing!”  We all laughed and gathered around the see the table setting that Rachel has prepared for her wedding reception that will take place in 3 days. 

Your Inheritance

Your Inheritance

Your inheritance in Christ is eternal. Even when your future looks gloomy, you can trust God to show you the way.

“…Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light” (Colossians 1:12)

Do you have feel like you don’t have much to look forward to? Even when your future looks bleak, I want to encourage you to not be driven by your feelings.  Look up to God and begin to give thanks to God who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.  When we adopted our two sons from Brazil, they were qualified by the government to inherit our name and the right to be in our family.  Although they had never traveled far from their village, they had a home and family waiting for them. One day near the end of our time in Brazil, Dre said “sometimes it is hard to believe that it is all true.” We had shown him the pictures, but he needed to trust us and follow us to a new land and a new home. In a similar way, God has told you about your inheritance in His Word. But you must trust Him to bring about your future. God qualifies you, entitles you, authorizes you and enables you with great potential of obtaining a full inheritance in Him! You must believe Him to receive from Him.

Make Jesus Christ your inheritance.

We would love to hear from you… 


	

Your Strength

Your Strength

Be strengthened!

Do you come to the end of your day where you feel like you have run out of steam?   If you are like most of us moms, your answer to that question is “yes!”

Colossians 1:11 promises that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need!

That’s good news for you today.  God’s strength doesn’t just flow through you when you are at church or in a bible study. His strength, endurance and patience is available to you 24/7.  That means that you don’t need to struggle or strain through your day.  If you ask, He won’t just give you a tiny trickle of strength to just survive.  When you surrender to His strength, it will flood you and invigorate you with life!


	

Your Work

Your Work

 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.” Colossians 1:10 NIV

Do you ever get tired of your job as a mom?  Do you every feel under appreciated and definitely under paid?

Ask yourself, why is it then, that you spend so much time being dis-satisfied with what He has called us to do and to be.  For many of you out there, you have dreamed about being a mom. And now that you are, you dream about having peace and quiet and getting away from your kids.  It’s funny how when you get what you ask for, you still are not content in the good work that God has called you to.

Know that you have a calling to live a life worthy of the Lord. You are called to please Him in every way.  One of the ways that you will please Him is in bearing fruit in every good work as you increase in your knowledge of God.

Your Prayer

Your Prayer

“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.” Colossians 1:9 NIV

Do you sometimes go through the entire day and forget to pray.  Never underestimate the power of prayer.

I didn’t understand the power of prayer until I was in a life and death situation. One night when my daughter Rachel was 5 weeks old I was awakened to hear screaming in terror. I tried to get to her but I couldn’t find my way. I was disoriented, I couldn’t breath. Finally I pushed up my window and I realized that my house was on fire and I had now way of getting myself or my baby out of the house.

That was the night that I learned the power of prayer. My mom had been praying for me from Isaiah 43… that I would go through the fire and not be burned.

Don’t forget the power of prayer. As you pray to God He will fill you with knowledge of His will and all spiritual wisdom and understanding. Pray like your life depended on it.
