Spiritual Disciplines in the Context of Marriage and Motherhood

Spiritual disciplines are basically hidden from the eyes of others, but that which we’ve received from Jesus is going to splash out to bless all the people around us. We will be under pressure what we have rehearsed in our leisure.

A mother can incorporate spiritual disciplines as she goes through her day. Singing and Bible memory is something that you can do with your children. It doesn’t need to be an either-or thing of spending time building your relationship with God or managing the household. That running conversation going on in your head during the day – you can turn it into a conversation with God. There are numerous ways that a child-bearing mother can fast, and thereby nurture an eternal perspective.

Motivated by our highest love to Jesus, we’re willing to diligently pursue priorities that help us thrive spiritually. As we sense our weakness and inadequacy, we lean into Christ’s strength.

The Walk of Faith

Drawing inspiration from the ladies mentioned in Hebrews 11, and then sharing her own life story and walk of faith, Sister Wendy Good encourages women today to be faithful, no matter what the circumstances of their lives. The only thing that can hinder God’s will or purpose in our lives, is us ourselves.
