A first for me


This is the first time I participate in "Word Filled Wednesday", but I thought it would be a great way to show what God is doing with me. This coming Saturday is mother´s day here in Spain. So I thought I would share something about us ladies, moms, and wives.



Pro 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

I think I can talk for every mom and wife when I say that, to fulfil this Bible verse is our main desire. We all want to be a godly example to our kids. We all want to be a helpmeet to our husbands. Having that desire is great, but nothing gets accomplished with just desiring something. Actions must be taken. If we want to be godly moms, we have to conduct ourselves in a godly way. If we want to be a helpmeet to our husbands, there are things that we must do, or in many cases, must not do. Actions and not desires is what will make this Bible verse true in our lives. We must ask God to help us to be what we ought to be for His honour and His glory. We must ask for His guidance and take actions.

Jas 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin

Welcome to WFW. Great pic and word for today. It is a high calling and one that is possible. It does require action, not just desire - you are so right! Happy early Mother's Day and Happy WFW!
