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

EpicenterThe great preacher and author, Dwight L. Moody confessed, "If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!" He understood the power of investing in a child's life. Dear mother, you are in this very ministry! Every day and all day! What a privilege. There is nothing more powerful you can do. The investment you pour into your children not only blessed them, but the world. Even more--future generations, and eternity!

Don't let the enemy fill you with his lies that motherhood is insignificant. You are part of the greatest work in God's kingdom. When the people brought children to Jesus, the disciples shooed them off, thinking Jesus would not have time for the children. This made Jesus angry and He let them know. "Do not push these children away. Do not ever get between them and Me. These children are at the very center of life in the kingdom" (Mark 10:13, 15 MSG).

Mother, you are at the very epicenter of life in God's kingdom!

Enjoy it today,

Nancy Campbell

DontBlockAn important question. Are our homes stagnant or flowing with joy and life? Psalm 46:4 (Jubilee) gives a description of the homes of Jerusalem: "There is a river, the streams of which make glad the city of God, the sanctuary of the tents of the most high." The city is filled with gladness because streams are flowing from the homes of the city.

What are these streams? They flow from the river of the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39 and Romans 5:5). As mothers, we have a responsibility to "make glad" our home. The words in the Hebrew mean "to brighten up, to cheer up, to rejoice, to make merry and very glad." The only way we can do this is to be filled with the Holy Spirit and allow the streams that flow from Him into our lives to flow out from us to our husband and children.

What are these streams? They are streams of love, forgiveness, sweetness, healing of the soul and body, holiness, encouragement and building up, compassion and kindness, tenderheartedness, humility and meekness, longsuffering and patience, and streams of forbearance and peacemaking. These streams can only come from the river of the Holy Spirit.

Do you make your marriage glad? Do you make your motherhood glad? Do you make your home glad? Are these streams flowing from your life or are they stagnant? Don't allow the debris of self-pity, discouragement, despondency, unforgiveness, and discontentment to block up the river.

Let the river of life flow in your home today,

Nancy Campbell

HowBeHappy“She always made home happy.” This was an epitaph a husband inscribed on his wife’s grave after 60 years of marriage. What a powerful life. Imagine 60 years of making a home happy.

Could this be written over my grave, or yours? Do we consciously seek to make our husband happy? Do we intentionally bless and encourage our children each day? Do we seeking to make our home a delight? Or are we too busy taken up with our own problems, self-interest, or self-pity?

Can I tell you a secret? The best way to get out of the doldrums and depression is to forget about yourself and bless someone else. “How can I make someone happy when I feel so lousy?” you ask. Forget your feelings. Just do it. You will be amazed at what happens.

When you make others happy, you become happy. As you become happy f, you make others even happier. Your husband will be happier. Your children will be happier.

This is the way to go, mother! Start making someone happy right now. If your husband is around, sneak up on him and give a big kiss and cuddle. Or call him at work and tell him you love him. Do something special for one of your children.

What a great goal for today. Make your husband happy, your children happy, everyone you meet happy--and guess what, you'll be happy!

Blessings from Nancy Campbell

NoOneCanDear mother, can I ask you what voices you listen to? There are many voices in this world, all vying for preeminence in your mind. Humanistic voices lure you away from the heart of your home, the place God divinely provided for you to raise your children. Deceptive voices tempt you to get involved in more and more things that take your time away from your home and family.

God has innately put in you what He wants you to do. Listen to your heart, dear mother. Listen to God's voice. Your children need YOU, not daycare, not a caregiver. No one else can ever love and care for your children like you do. No one else can be sensitive to their physical needs, and especially their innermost needs as you.

Someone else can replace you in your career, your organization, or even extra church activities, but no one can adequately replace you as the mother of the children God has given you. You were born for this mission. It is your destiny.

Embrace your high calling today,

Nancy Campbell
