I believe that women have enough micro-vision and what they need is the macro-vision. In my book I never talk to women in domestic terms, nor do I address the role of a mother. This never occurred to me as this is not the place to start or even to end up at; roles do not give identity. When the domestic details of life wrap their tentacles around our days and when there is no alternative to being human, we must remind ourselves that one day time will be no more. Our mothering will be no more. Our marriages will be no more. Our careers will be no more. Our friendships will be no more. Our causes will be no more. Our influence will be no more. We can only find hope and our very identity in what has always been and what will always be: Christ.
I cannot get enough of this truth. I was made for this truth.
“I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
(I shared this truth again with my children through the words of this video, a song I have loved from the days of my youth. And then I caught my son responding.)
