"My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you–but I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for I am perplexed about you."
As a mother of four incredibly, wonderful children this verse cuts to the very heart of me as I am sure it has other mothers. I often feel I am in labor again for my children that they may walk in Truth, knowing only then will I see Christ formed in them. We birth them physically in great pain, but there is no greater anguish than laboring to see them birthed spiritually walking in Truth.
Let us not lose heart as we continue to intercede and labor til we give birth in the Spirit to what is God’s will for each child He entrusted to us. His heart is tender to a mother’s cry. He formed us in His image out of His own heart. Let us continue to labor before the throne til we have our last dying breath, and are all safely home. " Be not weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not." Galatians 6:9
In His love.
Photos of my dear children at Stephen, my youngest son’s wedding. My daughter, Sarah and myself, are standing under the arbor built for Katelyn and Stephen’s wedding by my older sons, Caleb and John David. Stephen and I danced to "He’s my Son." by Mark Schultz. Caleb and John David tried to keep little Levi, Caleb’s son, happy during quite an ordeal for the little ring bearer. He and his Mee-Maw are kindred spirits. We prefer not to be confined; we enjoy lots of space outdoors.
