Women's Daily Encouragement Blog

Strengthening Families Across the World through the encouragement of women in their high calling from God as wives, mothers and homemakers.

Posted by on in Women's Daily Encouragement Blog

FamPrayer2Charles Hadden Spurgeon writes: "It would not be easy for some of us to recall the hour when we first heard the name of Jesus. In very infancy that sweet sound was as familiar to our ear as the hush of a lullaby. Our earliest recollections are associated with the HOUSE OF GOD, THE FAMILY ALTAR, THE HOLY BIBLE, THE SACRED SONG, and THE FERVENT PRAYER."

It was this foundation that produced a man such as Spurgeon. What memories will your children have of growing up in your home?

Nagging“Where there is complaining, it shall fail,
Where there is nagging, it shall drive the husband away,
Where there is bitterness, it shall poison the marriage,
Where there is self-pity, it shall bring self-destruction,
But loves goes on forever!”

Adapted for wives from 1 Corinthians 13.

DadDaughterAs for The one who shares my life;
It was my choice to be his wife!
And for our jobs, if I could choose,
I wouldn’t want to wear his shoes.

No, I won’t sign the lib’s petition
To do away with wife’s submission,
I'd be a fool to boss my spouse,
I want a man and not a mouse!

I do not have to prove my might
For we are equal in God’s sight,
But we’re to function differently,
God made us that way purposely.

He’s my provider, what a gem,
And I’m a helper fit for him.
To live the role God planned for me
This makes me completely free!

LongTermCareerBe encouraged today, dear mother. You are not mothering, teaching, and training your children just for today! You have a long-term career. You are doing it for ALL THE DAYS OF THEIR LIFE! You are doing it for your grandchildren and generations to come. Your teaching will last throughout their life. Even when they leave home, it will keep them from evil, continue to talk to them in their minds, and lead them in the right paths (Proverbs 6:20-22).

Deuteronomy 6:1, 2 says: “Now these are the commandments . . . that ye might do them in the land . . . that thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statues and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, ALL THE DAYS OF THY LIFE.” Read also Deuteronomy 4:9.

You are not going to be fired. You have a job for ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE. And it will influence your children for ALL THE DAYS OF THEIR LIVES.

Be encouraged.

children campingCan I ask you a question? If your children are in public school, do you know their friends and who they hang out with? Are they children or teens who fear the Lord and follow after His truth? What about their teachers who are influencing them daily? Are they keepers of the truths of the Bible or filled with humanist ideology?

The psalmist confessed: “I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts” (Psalm 119:63).

We are influenced by the people we keep company with, even as adults. What about our children? They are influenced even more by the company they keep. You can be the greatest parent in the world, but if your children start hanging around with ungodly friends, they influence your children more than you. I raised my children on Proverbs 13:20: “He that walks with wise men shall be wise, but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

Can I encourage you dear mother that if your children do not have godly friends who fear the Lord in their school environment to take them out of school. Although you also need wisdom regarding “Christian” friends these days.

Now I know I am going to be bombarded with those who say they send their children to school to be a witness. That sounds such a good idea, but it doesn’t always work. When planting a sapling that we want to one day be strong tree, we must protect it from the winds and elements. I have to confess to my shame that I lost many trees I planted because I didn’t protect them adequately.

We don’t send our saplings out to be brainwashed by the enemy with humanist propaganda, ungodly teaching, and to be taught to accept abominable practices as though they were normal. We first of all ground our children in the truth. We make sure they are strong in the Lord and in His Word and able to contend for their faith. We get them ready before we send them out. We are not getting them ready for hibernation, but for the revelation of God to the world. But they better be strong first. And they better not just look like Christians and yet have minds filled with humanism! The current church of God is filled with humanist thinkers.

Teens especially long for friends, but they better be surrounded by godly companions! This is what the Bible says to do so we had better take notice. 1 Corinthians 15:33 (HCSB): “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company corrupts good morals.’”

Make it a daily prayer with your husband that God will provide godly friends for your children and teens.

Blessings to you today from Nancy Campbell
