3 John 4 WORDart


3 John 4 WORDart by Karen 4 x 6 frame-ready

The WORDart this week is a scripture I have had on my wall for many years.  I love this scripture because it reminds me every day of what my mission is as a mother.  God has blessed me with six children and nothing blesses me more than to see them live their lives serving Christ, walking in the truth and dedicating their lives to Him.  Being a mother is one of the greatest joys I have ever experienced.  Motherhood is not an easy task.  It can be very challenging and there are days of frustration, loneliness and even heartbreak.  Motherhood has driven me to my knees in prayer more than anything else in my life ever has.  God has really been speaking to me lately about not seeing motherhood as a “job” but as a ministry.  When I think of caring for my children and their needs as a ministry, it really makes me think of how I act and what I say.  If I want my children to walk in truth, I need to show them the truth by more than just reading devotions every morning.  They need to see it in my life and feel it in the way I interact with them (and others).  Shouldn’t I minister to them as I would minister to Christ if He were in my home?

You can download this WORDart here.

I also created the frame ready art above and you can download that here if you would like to use it.

I pray God richly blesses you and your home.  If you are a mother, I challenge you to view motherhood as a ministry and see how that changes the atmosphere in your home.
