When a Simple Life Feels Insignificant

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
