Monday's Mission

Last Wednesday, our “R&R” assignment was to read chapters 9 through 12 of Kingdom Woman. These chapters deal with the spheres in which we can influence our world as we become the Kingdom Woman that God wants us to be. All of our worlds are different.

Some of us are married.  Some of us are single.  Some of us are single again.  There are those of us that are mothers, those of us who have careers outside of the home, and those of us who are highly engaged at our churches.  Some of us are lonely, and not feeling as if we have much influence anywhere because the only person in our world is “us”. No matter where you are and what your life looks like today, you can have influence.

Sometimes our the results of our efforts are evident.  Sometimes in a matter of hours, days, or weeks, you can see that your hard work prayer, perseverance, or faithfulness have paid of. Sometimes, you have to believe in faith that as you live your life as unto the Lord, that your efforts matter.  Some of us are only supposed to plant seeds that God will water with the efforts or prayers of others and result in full grown trees that you will never see.  Others of us are supposed to hang in their for a looooong time as we wait for the day that God will allow us to witness the fruits of our labors.

So…hang in there with that difficult marriage.  Keep loving those kids that are getting on your last nerve! Continue to be faithful to be a witness for Christ on your job. Don’t stop praying for and loving on that person for whom you are trusting God for their salvation. Keep serving faithfully in your church or in that ministry that you sense God has called you to. Stay involved in your community and shine as a light for Jesus even if you are ridiculed for doing so.

If you haven’t been the influence that you sense you ought to be.  It’s not too late.  Start today.

While I will give you a few Monday missions to choose from, don’t feel pressure!  Pick one or two if you are ambitious.  But only select a mission if it blesses you… not if it stresses you!

What exactly is Monday’s Mission?

Every Monday during our #KingdomWoman “One Month Journey”, I will give you an assignment.  It’s great to read a book but what’s even better? Seeing change in your life because a book’s message taking root in your life. Your Monday’s Mission will be an opportunity for any woman who is reading Kingdom Woman to get ideas for applying Kingdom Woman.  I don’t know about you but I want to  activate change in my life!



~ Your “Mission” for Today ~

Choose from any of the following missions as a way to put “feet” to your faith!

Then be sure to post in the comments to tell me about YOUR mission!

Good in the way of the great. – In Chapter 9 we read, “show me your calendar, and I will show you your priorities.”  What is one thing that you have been busy doing that you will make a plan to STOP DOING (or at least change the frequency or amount of your involvement).  It’s time to put feet to the pavement ladies.  What regular ongoing commitment or activity is good but that is keeping you from doing God’s BEST!

Be a positive influence – I don’t care where you are in your relationships with members of your family (husband, children, mothers, sisters, etc.).  Make it a point to encourage at least one of them today.  Have a positive influence on an individual in your familial sphere of influence by telling them what you love about them, sharing your appreciation with them, or sending them a message that they are valued by you and by God.

Get in alignment! – Alignment is the idea that you are operating within God’s prescribed order and fulfilling the role he has given you to the best of your ability.  If you are single, that might mean doing your job in excellence (not wasting time!) or serving under authority in your church without a rebellious attitude or a spirit of resistance or even gossip or slander with regard to the people you work or serve with. If you are married, then being in alignment can also include operating in the freedom of a submissive spirit with your husband.

If the whole idea of alignment or submissiveness is convicting for you, think of one area where you could do better and exercise that muscle today.  If you are argumentative in your marriage, practice holding your tongue.  If you are typically not up to par with your discipline and focus at work, try your best to have one highly focused and hard working day!  If you have the habit of talking about people in authority over you because you disagree with their ways of operating or structural direction… just don’t do it!  Honor the authority that God has placed in your life.  He will be pleased with your efforts even in the midst of a difficult situation.
