My Little Mission Field

I'm not called to the mission field but I am called to raise the five precious children the Lord has intrusted me with for Him! Most of what I know about motherhood was taught to me by my Mom. She gave my sister and I a beautiful legacy for raising Godly children. And she also taught us that God equips each of us with wisdom and abilty to carry out His calling and plan for our lives! Recently, I was listening to Andy Stanley's wife Sandra Stanley talk about homeschooling their children. She talked about a verse in Nehemiah that ministered to her during this season of homeschooling. She felt sad because she had to say "no" to many good things because she just didn't have the time but God gave her Nehemiah 6:2&3... "I am doing a great work and I cannot come down." This is the message Nehemiah sent when he was trying to rebuild the walls of Jeresulam. So powerful! I immediately connected with what she was saying and this scripture! It's so true. I am doing a great work and so are you whether you are a homeschool Mom, working Mom, stay at home Mom, Mom of 1 or Mom of 20! Whatever God has called you to do, YOU are doing A GREAT WORK!
