So my identity is ALL in Christ……not in being a wife and mother. My ASSIGNMENT for 36 years, 4 months and 10 days was to be the wife of Bob Feathers. My assignment as the mother of four beautiful daughters, the mother-in-law of four men and the grandmother of nine grandchildren will continue until the day God calls me home.
But, my assignment being a wife came to an end on November 10th, 2009. It was finished and I completed it. At that moment of completion a new assignment was given to me. It wasn’t an assignment that I wanted. It wasn’t an assignment that I had dreamed about or worked towards. But, it is an assignment that God had planned for my life and because He planned for it, He is continuing to equip me to be able to do it.
My identity is ALL in Christ. My assignment is to be a widow. I want to do my best to learn all I can about God during this assignment time and to more closely develop my relationship with HIM.
