Do You Ever Feel Like This?

"A woman once fretted over the usefulness of her life. She feared she was wasting her potential being a devoted wife and mother. She wondered if the time and energy she invested in her husband and children would make a difference. At times she got discouraged because so much of what she did seemed to go unnoticed and unappreciated. “Is it worth it?” she often wondered. “Is there something better that I could be doing with my time?”
"It was during one of these moments of questioning that she heard the still small voice of her heavenly Father speak to her heart. “You are a wife and mother because that is what I have called you to be. Much of what you do is hidden from the public eye. But I notice. Most of what you give is done without remuneration. But I am your reward. Your husband cannot be the man I have called him to be without your support. Your influence upon him is greater than you think and more powerful than you will ever know. I bless him through your service and honor him through your love. 
"Your children are precious to Me. Even more precious than they are to you. I have entrusted them to your care to raise for me. What you invest in them is an offering to me. You may never be in the public spot light. But your obedience shines as a bright light before me. Continue on. Remember you are My servant. Do all to please Me.”

Oh, aren't these encouraging words?  When we do all these things for our families, it may be hard.  No one may notice day to day.  But God sees all we do.  Let's remember that.

  1. Merci beaucoup pour ces mots qui font un grand écho dans mon coeur d'épouse au foyer et de maman au foyer dont les enfants sont grands maintenant ! Je souffre du "nid vide " et cet article me fait beaucoup de bien . Bénie sois-tu !

    1. Oh, I'm glad it was helpful. It must be so hard to have all of your children grown & out of the house. I am not looking forward to that stage, really. But your work at home still is important! God bless you.

  2. Loved this! Janine

  3. I still feel like that sometimes and my children are adults. But, when I stop to think about it, staying home meant that I was able to give my children such a lot of support throughout their school years. I am not a grandmother yet, but my eldest works helping to protect children internationally from online predators, so she is already paying it forward. My youngest has disabilities and still lives at home. The fact that I stayed at home, looking after our belongings and having time to watch the pennies, whilst supporting my husband in his job, meant that he was able to save into a pension and was able to retire early, so he is now able to share caring for our son. I am not a practicing Christian, but I can't help thinking that it is part of a plan.

    1. Yes, staying home for our families gives them so much. It sounds like you've been there for your children (and continue to be). God has a high view of family & homemakers 🙏❤️

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these encouraging words! As a wife and stay at home, homeschooling mama, it's so easy to fall into the trap of not feeling appreciated. Thanks for the reminder that we work unto the Lord, not man!

  5. "I resonate with this post so much! Homemaking can be challenging and overwhelming at times, but it's comforting to know that others feel the same way. It's important to remember that we're all human and it's okay to have those moments of exhaustion and frustration. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and reminding us that we're not alone in this journey. Sending you positive energy and wishing you a blessed and fulfilling homemaking experience!"
