Mom Heart Conference part 4 notes/thoughts

What is my marvelous calling?

  • You are called to create a biblical family-its Gods design for filling the world with his followers.

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
   in the image of God he created them;
   male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”  Genesis 1: 26-28

  • We are created to further his kingdom, passing on the purposes of God. We need to teach our children that God made them for a purpose……
  • You are called to teach and obey his Word-it is Gods design for not being deceived by the world.

You need to build influence with your children. You can’t do that with stuff, it takes time, attention, loving them, and laughing with them. Its sooooo easy to be tired and so many reasons to be tired. Jesus was a servant king, who lived with, ate with and instructed his diciples. We must be the parent who becomes the flesh of Christ. Invest moments with them, build one brick at a time…….

For me this is hard, I spend so much time educating them that I forget that I also need to do other things with them on a regular basics. I think well I just spent all morning doing school anit that enough? But its not…….

that last part you wrote is the same thing i struggle with. i've done school with them, but i need to make a point to spend more "play" time with them. i had an opportunity this weekend to that or get the stuff i needed to get done, but i chose to play with them instead. it was hard to put down the stuff i needed to do but obviously well worth it in the end! now i just need to keep purposing to spend that extra time with them. how else can i win their heart strings...
