More today

Could it be that I am called to be more than I am today? This thought continues to circulate through my mind. Can I be more tomorrow? Will I be more like Christ? Staying where I am troubles me and drives me to change, daily. Then I slip into the same routine, rut or whatever it is, and think I am the same. Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. My responsibility is to change, to be more of what Christ has called me to be. As a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, a daughter and neighbour. To me there are days that concepts is overwhelming, but then I look at my children that I challenge every day through scripture, to walk in the word and draw close to Christ, pray and meditate on his words. I challenge them to change and sometimes forget about just how much change needs to occur in me! I am called to teach, nurture and raise these children to know the Lord. I am called to be more than I am today and thankfully I have a gracious and loving heavenly father that encourages and waits patiently as I seek to make those changes in my life. Hard to do, but I am challenged and must proceed!!

This one of the reasons why I do what I do!

Isaiah 45:8
a beautiful verse that we all wrote out in our journals outside the other morning.
