No Experience Necessary

 

It amazes me in reading some of these large blogs with several contributing writers how there are writers based on what? Very little to NO experience.Yes some of them are great at writing but based on the theme of the blogs they have no experience in life, very minimal in raising children and have not been married for very long.

These scriptures of instruction ring through my ears often as I read blogs like that...

Titus 2:3-5

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Where are the older women who are to teach the younger? Does this standard not exist in the blogging world? What does a young mom,whose children have not even started schooling yet, who has only been married for like 5 years have to show a mom who has been married 20 years and has grown children, teenagers and young ones all in the same house. I am not saying I couldn't learn something, if you are open to the working of the Holy Spirit, the Lord is always at work. But geez-- really,where are the older women? Or is it like everything else we compromise, " so we can be sure we reach all ages"?

I am going to get up on my soapbox for a little bit. I have no problem reading blogs of younger women, with less experience and younger children, but with these large teaching blogs, well let me say I am the age I am because of time, and I know what I know because of experience, and I have the wisdom that I have because of both of the above. I am stepping off the soapbox now....

What criteria do you have? Does it match up to scripture?

Stop and Pray with the MOB Society


#mobsociety

Having boys can be challenging to a mama in every way possible. It hurts our hearts sometimes. How do you pray for your sons? do you pray just for protection? or do you pray they stay out of trouble?

I pray for more than that for my sons. I desire for their hearts to live for the Lord. I desire for them to not be part of the status quo. Exceptional men of God is what I am rearing, and praying for. Men who love the Lord and go as far as die for Christ if need be. Men who are leaders of their homes, wash their wives in the Word, and disciple their children to love the Lord with all their hearts.

Isnt much to ask is it??  Nothing is hard for the Lord!

So tell me what do you pray for?

Whisperings

Some of you know I have lots of children. Seven to be exact, and most of them are older and Most of them are young men except for one boy.  


Lately one of my youngmen have been struggling. He works at an amusement park, and is around people all day long who standards, or morals do not quite match what we(through God's grace) have tried to instill in him. All day long he is whispered at about what he should have, and what he should be doing at "his age". 


Today while reading the Word these verses stood out....




Proverbs 23

15 My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
16 Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.
17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long


His heart started to "envy" what these whisperers were saying to him and started to feel like he has been missing out on something in life. 


Really? 
How do we envy sinners? 
How do we as professing believers say "I want what they have" or " I wish my life was like theirs" 
Truth be told if we are asking for their lives(and sin) then we are also asking for the same judgement they will face some day when Our Savior returns to this world. 


How we so easily forget....
Romans 6
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


People make sin sound and look so appealing. Of course, they do not want to go it alone. Be Careful dear sweet son, keep your eyes open and your ears peeled to those whisperings and realize who it is really speaking, and who it is really tempting you away from the path the Lord has for you!


Ephesians 6
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;


Be strong my sweet youngmen for we are not reaching for things that are temporal but we are reaching for things that are eternal! 

In Christ I Serve,
Mom/Angie

MOB Society 2012 blog Hop

 

Hello MOB Society moms...

 




 
 
 
Welcome to my blog..
 
My name is Angie.
 

 

I am a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Jesus Christ. Wife to my beloved, Godly leader of a husband Samuel, mother to 7 Warriors for Christ. Five of those warriors are boys, and I have two precious princesses. I have been blogging for about 6 years. My blog is about my walk with Christ, my life, and my family.

I don't have a business or products to sell. I just have experience and wisdom from living my life with 5 men/children. My boys ages are 21,20,19,15 and 5 years.

I never encouraged my kids to play video games. I encouraged more physical activity. I am a firm believer that boys need to expend as much energy as possible. Soccer was our sport of choice. Everyone played soccer and they even refereed for a few years

I am hoping that by y'all visiting my blog you will find it to be worth your time and you will be blessed by my experiences.

Visit TheMobsociety.com for Mothers of Boys blogs... I am sure it will be a blessing to you.

Love In Christ

Angie

Modesty

Modesty seems to be a big issue among Christians. Most woman do not follow modesty nor do they know how because of the standards set by society. All they care about is how they look and what is in fashion.

Truth be told women, we are a stumbling blocks to our Christian brothers by not covering ourselves.

Here is a link to an article written by Stacy McDonald. She answers the question " Can't you tell me what to wear?"

Ladies Against Feminism




May the grace of Our Lord Jesus be with you as you discover His truth.
