As I read this very familar passage one word comes to mind; Selfless! So often I find myself being the complete opposite of selfless. I find myself high strung, angry, frustrated and disappointed. All of these point my mind back to the real heart issue, Selfishness!
We as mothers, have a difficult responsibility of caring for our homes and family endlessly. We just like any other follower of Christ, battle against this fallen flesh. A flesh that seeks out pity, justice, and control. Our hearts crave to be needed, loved, and appreciated and will go to any lengths to get it. Our natural sinful state causes an internal struggle that unfortunately often leads us in the opposite direction of the lady described here.
Looking at this discription it’s convicting and also encouraging. I see my role clearly displayed here and I know that it can be done. I understand this isn’t always a natural instinct for all women and this looks different in every home. Thank God he has given us his Spirit to direct us and to change or course if needed.
Continue in his word so that those changes will be illuminated and we can glorify God more fully. Submit and pray for wisdom.
With Great Love & Truth,
