Your Fruit

Your Fruit

“…All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God’s grace in all its truth.” Colossians 1:6 NIV

Do you feel like your life doesn’t really matter?

Sometimes my perspective is too small. I am stuck in the meaningless and the mundane. But if I look up and realize that I am an important part of the Kingdom of God advancing on the earth. There is no better place to advance the kingdom of God than in your home with your children.  God has designed your home to be a safe, warm and inviting place for your children and others to learn to know God in an intimate way.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is dynamic. If you stay connected to Him, you will grow and bear fruit when you truly understand His grace in your every day life.

Your life matters.  There is no one like you in all the world.  There are people that God has called you to reach and He has given you the grace to bear fruit that last for eternity.

Do you ever hear the “lie” that your life doesn’t matter?

 

	

Your Hope

Your Hope

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel…” Colossians 1:3-5 NIV.

If you are really honest, do you sometimes feel hopeless?.

About 22 years ago I was sitting at a table with my newborn baby after going through a terrible loss and the people sitting across from me were sharing concerns.  They meant their words in love, but it was bad timing. It felt like my world was crashing around me. I was hopeless. It felt like I was being stabbed in the back.

It is amazing how vulnerable you can be when you have gone through the life-changing event of having a baby.  I look back at this now, and realize that my perspective was off-center. My hope was anchored to what others thought about me, rather than a confident hope anchored on the person of Jesus.

Have you ever experienced a lack of hope?

What helped you to anchor your hope in Christ?

Your Help, Your Hope of Glory

“…Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27

Do you sometimes feel under-qualified as a mom? The great new is that there is a helper that who qualifies you and sets you apart for the task of mothering.

I need all the help I can get as a mom of seven children. It’s those days when I feel overwhelmed that I need to stop and remind myself, that I since I have made Jesus the Lord of my Life, I am not alone in parenting our children …. Christ lives in me (Colossians 1:27), and He has given me the ability to be fruitful in every good work. That includes being a mom!

If I stay connected to Jesus, (John 15) He will strengthen me with all might as I tackle the mundane assignments of life.  He has given me Himself so that I can walk in patience even with little boys that want to talk back rathe than obey right away.  He is the One who has qualified to be the best mom in the world for my child.

 

	

True Loyalty

True Loyalty

Do you have True Loyalty to others?

Proverbs 20:6 says “Many will say they are loyal friends,but who can find one who is truly reliable?” (NLT) Lots of people claim to be loyal, but loyalty is proven over time. Learn to be someone who keeps confidences, who invests in relationships, who listens without bias. Become someone who others can rely on. Be the person that others can go to. A loyal person is never without friends.

 

	

Wise Counsel

Wise Counsel

How do you do at family gatherings? Do you end up at odds with those you love?

Proverbs 20:3 says “It’s a mark of good character to avert quarrels, but fools love to pick fights” (The Message). Avoiding a fight is really wise.  It is often the little quirks about someone that can drive you crazy. Learning to let go of offenses, setting good boundaries, and simply loving from the heart goes a long way in building family unity.
