I know that I have a purpose. Deep down, I know it and believe it. But there are days…between dirty diapers and messes and just being at home all…day…long that I forget. I so often forget. Yes, there’s more to being a mom than picking up countless messes and disciplining and making bottles ;) When I sat down to read a devotion today, I came across this and it blessed me:
“I am not languishing. I am not floundering. I am not deceived. I have a vision. I know who I am and who God created me to be. I know my purpose. I have direction. I now God’s mandate for my life.
I am walking in the perfect will of God. I know it’s not easy. I know it’s hard. But I’ve counted the cost. My goal is set. How could my career be easy when I am impacting this nation for God? Also, generations to come. And eternity!
How can it be easy when I am destroying the plans of the devil? Such is the power of my God-ordained career…motherhood. I have embraced my calling. I am not intimidated by antagonists. I will not be moved. My heart is fixed. I may be hidden in my home, but look out world! I am sharpening and polishing my arrows. I am getting ready to shoot forth and destroy the works of the enemy. In the power and anointing of God I am advancing His kingdom!” ~ Nancy Campbell
Just wanted to say how encouraged I am by this post, Arielle. As a young mama of one (and another on the way) I can relate! Would you mind sharing what devotional you’re quoting?
Havent read this one yet until today.. You have impacted this world with your geniune kindness, and “nature about you” that you carry with you everyday! Love you, Terra
