"Womanly Dominion"

A friend sent this quote from the book "Womanly Dominion" to me as an encouragement in the tasks of what my calling entails. I wanted to pass it along in hopes that it will spur you on to higher ground.

pg. 154-
"It's my understanding that every biblically committed wife and mother must pass through a personal Gethsemane of sorts, needing to come to grips with the cup her Father has poured for her.
Think, dear sister, how the Lord Jesus selflessly served you.  He laid down His life to make you look good. He laid it down on crucifixion day, so that you'd look good on judgement day.  He was spat upon, beaten, scourged, mocked, stripped, spiked, hung, and forsaken.  Then He breathed His last so that you wouldn't forever weep, wail, and gnash your teeth in hell.  He was born, lived, and died with the sole object that you would look good forever.  Could it be that this wifehood and motherhood thing is calling you to higher ground, conforming you more to His glorious image?"  -Amen
