Motherhood and the Brevity of Life

The ladies at Metro Moms (a women's ministry blog for one of the Sovereign Grace churches in Florida) had a great series going this past week with reflections on Psalm 90. I'm finding it very edifying as I prepare for motherhood! Check out the index of posts here (scroll down to the bottom of the page for the first one). The lessons include:
  1. A biblical perspective on the brevity of life protects us from self-effort.
  2. It prevents us from the deception of a "time wasters" mentality.
  3. Provides grace-motivated desire to deal with our sins against our children.
  4. We can experience ongoing joy and gladness.
  5. It helps us to long for the spiritual hunger of our children.
  6. It protects us from self-sufficiency by reminding us that God alone can sustain our efforts.
Keep an eye on the homepage--various moms will weigh in on this topic this week.
