I can claim the promises of God, allow scripture to penetrate my soul
and spend countless hours with my Savior...
I can speak encouragement to my peers, pray with those in need and
walk in the light of Jesus among my community...
If this is not first applied within my home, to my family, my children, then I have missed it.
It starts at home.
Our greatest influence, our biggest assignment, our most precious disciples.
Marriage, parenting and running the household.
Let this be a prayer and preparation for my soul, my will, each morning:
"I will walk with integrity of heart within my house."
"Let the words of my mouth and the meditations fo my heart be acceptable in Your sight, oh my Rock and my Redeemer."
"Put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires."
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude; it does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self Control; against such things there is no law."
"Therefore, as you have received Jesus Christ the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith. Just as you were taught, abounding in Thanksgiving."
~Lord, may your word be established in my heart. May my body, mind and soul reflect the virtues of your ways so the heart of my husband can trust in me. Let my tongue bring peace, calm and gentle instruction to my children. In Jesus Name.
