Tonight I was talking with God about how tired I am of all the routine, mundane tasks of being mom. Tired of laundry, cooking, cleaning, changing diapers, disciplining….I could go on but you get my point! This is not how I want to be used by God right now. I have other gifts and abilities that could be put to use in more beneficial ways, or so I think.
But as I was communicating all this to God, He reminded me of what He has to remind me of quite frequently – faithfulness isn’t always glamorous or fulfilling.
So here are some words He used to encourage me tonight. I definitely don’t consider myself a poet so I’m kind of going out on a limb by sharing this. But, I felt I needed to pass along the encouragement in case someone else needed to hear it too.
When A Simple Life Feels Insignificant
Keep on doing the little things:
The small things,
The five-minute-here-five-minute-there things.
The things that show you will.
The things that no one sees.
Don’t give up on unnoticed things:
The all lone things,
The chance-for-lots-of-growth things.
The things that show you worthy.
The things that He can see.
He can use the small things
And turn them in to ‘Wow!’ things –
The change-another’s-life things.
He can use a faithful thing,
One small thing at a time.
Gal 6:9 (NASB)
Let us not lose heart in doing good,
for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.Eph 4:1 (NASB)
…I…implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling
with which you have been called
