Relationships are vital to life. They are especially vital in the house of God. God created us to not be alone. He created male and female, and the church needs both to be whole. We do not have to feel alone or do Kingdom work by ourselves. C5 women value the men of the house. We are not complete without them!
When women learn to stop shrinking back, stop hiding their light under a bushel, and embrace who they were created to be and serve from their strengths, there is no stopping them!
I’ve heard it said that men plan wars, but women plan weddings. Women look for connections with the generations in mind. Men fight for the future they believe in. Women find it natural to build relationships. We desperately need both to play their parts for the church to be complete.
It doesn't matter how old you are or whether you are a physical mother or not. There is always someone younger than you who needs a mother figure in there life. But if you've never seen it done, how to become a Mother of the House
2. A Mom doesn’t just look, she sees. Beyond the surface, into the heart of the child.
Beyond tattoos and piercings, and into the eyes. Beyond the pain and the hurt, and into
the heart. Every church needs moms who will look around, who will see beyond the
natural, who will look beyond the problems in people’s lives, and just love them like a
mother would. We live in an orphaned generation. Who will bestow the spirit of
adoption, and invite people into family if not us?
3. A Mom loves beyond reason. She doesn’t give up when tough times come. She has the
tenacity to love, even when her child doesn’t love her back.
4. A Mom always remembers the kids are watching. She acts like a spiritually mature
woman of God. Even on Facebook.
2 Corinthians 12:9 reminds those who are unsure, “But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and [b]show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may [c]pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!” (Amplified)
His grace is sufficient for you when you feel like you aren't qualified. His power is made perfect in your weakness, when you’re not sure you know what you’re doing. You don’t have to be perfect, you have to be willing. His grace and power are available upon your decision to embrace it.
Why not ask God to stretch your capacity, to give you influence to change someone's life today.
