• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Her Feet at Home by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/15/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: One thing the feminist movement has done so successfully is to stir up discontent among women who have responsibilities in the home.

My mom had six children in her first five years of marriage. She had an incredibly hard job, but she was content to serve in the role God gave her. She told me that she didn’t know she was supposed to be unhappy until others told her she shouldn’t have to deal with all the demands on her.

Her life stands in contrast to the women I know who look for satisfaction outside their home. While thinking they’ll find more meaning and fulfillment, they usually only find more stress.

Proverbs 7 describes a foolish woman and says, “Her feet never stay at home.” Has God called you to be a keeper in your home, serving your husband and children for His glory? Let me encourage you to stay with this important work. Keep serving for His glory and your ultimate satisfaction.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
