Enjoying the Everday
Hello Dear Ones,
Do you find it easy to get bored, distracted, annoyed, frazzled, etc. with day-to-day life at home?
If so, take a step back and look at your at-home life in the long run. What is your purpose there? Is it to be a maid, a cook, a teacher of academics? Most likely, you do cook meals, clean the house, and hopefully, if you have children, you teach them about the Lord.
However, you are not those above mentioned things. That is not your title. Those are things that you do to bless your family.
Instead of thinking of homemaking as a chore, or something to get done so that you can get on with other things, remember that is the Lord Who has put you in this role. It is Him that you are working for.
Accept that there are some things about homemaking that you do not particularly like, but just do them anyways. And in all that you do at home, strive to do it cheerfully, and with thankfulness.
Thankfulness that you are at home, looking after your children, and making a lovely home for your husband. Even if you have no children at home, you are still a housewife and meeting your husband's needs. How? By keeping a lovely home for him that is a retreat away from the rest of the world.
Begin every day with time in God's precious Word and prayer. There is nothing better than this to put your mind in the right spot to serve your family throughout the day. Return to the Lord in prayer throughout the day whenever you feel discouraged or need help.
Do what you are doing at home out of love for your family, and most of all love for the Lord. What you're doing is immeasurably important! Don't let the enemy of your soul discourage you or distract you from what you should be doing to bless your family.
