If you had one year to invest, write and proclaim a message…What would you say? Who would you invest your message into?
I know there is a burning message on your heart today. Every one has “something” that propels them forward. “Any mission begins with a heart-vision.”
Often busy with the needs and cares in life, we have pushed aside the vision in our hearts, because we have convinced ourselves that we “are just a mom.”
God DID give you this mission. Motherhood in all of its unrelenting responsibility can sometimes disguise and redirect us to forget that while carrying out this mission, we are also planting seeds in the hearts of our children.
Stepping back from the sippy cups, sleepless nights, music lessons, and school work – let us ask ourselves, ” Are we Raising Light-bearers?”
Are we speaking truth in our actions AND our words?
What are the messages we are giving our children while we pray for others? Will they understand that we are baking bread for the neighbor to shine a light for Jesus? When do they see us living the verses we ask them to memorize?
“Your family will be the hands and feet of your words.”
How can you raise a child that is sold out for Christ and His Kingdom Work? How do you instill values you know will replicate into a Light bearer?
“Every family has a unique message and mission.” It is not a mistake that God gave you a message AND a family. Perhaps it is time to consider how your family can make this a mission – Together?
What IS your family story?
A challenge from my heart to yours. Consider your heart-vision. Consider your family. Together, sit and write out your own family mission statement. You are the beginning of a revolution for the next generation.
Here is a sample of our family Mission Statement. Pull your family together over the Thanksgiving holiday, and write down your visions – together.
The McCarthy Family mission
Write your Family Mission Statement for the coming year. Let it not be lost on the distractions and motherhood days – for this is part of what he has called us to moms – Raising Kingdom Workers and Light bearers.
