The Chinese language has a great symbol for this truth. The word for righteousness is a combination of two pictures. On the top is a lamb. Beneath the lamb is a person. The lamb covers the person. Isn’t that the essence of righteousness? The Lamb of Christ over the child of God? Whenever the Father looks down on you . . . He sees His Son, the perfect Lamb of God, hiding you. ~ by Max Lucado
Dear Lord, we thank you so much for all your many blessings on our life. We thank you for the sacrifice of your Son on the cross that frees us from the penalty of death, Hell and the grave. We ask that you allow us to recognize your grace in all areas of our life this week. Thank you that you hide us behind your Son. We thank you and praise you for your sacrifice. Help us to always remember your grace that you give us. We love you, Lord. In your name we pray, Amen.
We hope you have a wonderful week!

Through this study, we will learn how to develop disciplines that will build “spiritual muscle”, such as personal Scripture study, Involvement with other believers, and seeking Christ in all things. We will also learn the 10 Hallmarks of Spiritual Strength and the four R’s of Spiritual Growth. Most importantly we will learn about the character of God.
We will be asking the question “What does it mean to be spiritually strong?”
Hope to see you there!

Mothers show up. They show up at the birth of their child. They show up when the baby wakes up, cries, is hungry or needs changing. Moms show up at the bus stop, in the car pool line, at teacher conferences, as homeroom moms and at ball games. They show up to wash their child’s clothes, clean their rooms, help with homework and feed their bellies.
The Lord put relentless and forgiving love in the heart of mothers. Moms cannot not care for their child, because this is how Christ made them. Why does a godly mom show up in quiet supplication for the soul of their son or daughter? Why does a woman of God go to church faithfully with their child in tow, so they can hear the truth about Jesus’s love?These women of faith keep showing up on behalf of their Savior, because like the mother of Jesus, they love Jesus. The love of Christian moms flows out of the love for their Lord. Their Heavenly Father first loves them, so they in turn can deeply love their loved ones with the Lord’s everlasting love. Indeed, you show up to be loved by Jesus, so you can show up to love for Jesus. Mothers who love their children best are first loved by Christ.“I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also” (2 Timothy 1:5).
Lastly, loving moms show up during the darkest days of sorrow. They keep coming back to the bedside of their little one languishing with illness. The stamina of a mom over her sick child sometimes seems supernatural—and it is—because the Holy Spirit is their supply. He is there to give you the support you need to be the mom Christ as called you to be.
Stay true to showing up with your Savior each day. He will equip and empower you to be the mom for your children. Show up for Jesus and He will show up for you.
“I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." And he worshiped the LORD there” (1 Samuel 1:27-28).
Is Jesus the lover of my soul? Do I allow the Lord to love me, so I can better love my child?
