Im happy to announce the new addition to our family. A beautiful baby girl named faith. Giving birth for the third time is truly ..... A remarkable experience. You get to enjoy simple tjings like recoveringg faster than uour past pregnancies. You get to be more patient in breastfeeding. You get to use each and every moment to talk to the Lord.
Ive used my breastfeeding time to do quiet time. Thats what you call wise use of time. :) and it has been enriching. Motherhood is indeed one of the hardest journey i have taken. But the sacrifices are all worthit. Just seeing your little one grow everyday ... Achieve little milestones.... I truly believe we , women are created to be wives and mothers.
I wanna share some principles from couple's retreat about our roles as women. In this day and age and because of the consequences of sin, we have fallen short of God's glory and have lost sight of God's design for our lives. Women are created to complete the man. In genesis 2, God made the woman to be the helpmeet - the helper. We are need to be reminded all the time thatbit is not our destiny to overtake our husband's achievements but rather support and help them achieve theirs. When our husbands are successful, we are successful because we are one when we married our husbands.
The second principle from biblical marriage and parenting is child rearing. It is the Lord's commission for us to disciple all nation baptising them. What better and closer way to disciple than to disciple our own children - raising them to grownin the fear of the Lord, to walk with the Lord and to accomplish His purpose in their lives is the best discipleship we can ever embark on.
As mothers, we need to be clar about God's purpose - God's economy, God's plan for our families and be fervent in our prayer life.
