Ben and I listened to an awesome sermon today while sitting down at the Kingsville park. The title was “A Plan for your Family – God’s vs the World” by John F. MacArthur. (Find his sermons and videos here) Recently I have been noticing my desire for a family and motherhood is steadily growing. My heart gets excited when seeing anything about raising children, preparing your home or being a family under the Lord. I believe this is a growing passion for the Lord, and even though there are times when I am so thankful I do not have the responsibility of children at this time, I know that when it is time for Ben and I to expand our wonderful family by the grace of God my heart will be on the right track for motherhood.
(I love my husband, our life together and all that is to come)
What a blessing families are. I adore mine, both blood and marriage, close and extended. I just can’t wait for the smiles, the one liners, the instruction, the nurturing, teaching, praying and growth for all that children bring.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5
