So, as a stay at home mom, there are always a million things to do. Manage four kids, manage the house, cook, drive little people around … you get the picture. I need to tell you about how I honestly felt true joy as I plowed through the tasks of the day. Take a look.
*I did 5 loads of laundry. That means that God has provided my family with clothing.
*I did 3 loads of dishes. That means God has provided my family with an abundance of food.
*I dusted. That means God has provided a home for my family.
*I cleaned up mud from the floor. That means God gave us a warm day and a safe place for my kids to run around and play.
Do you see where I’m going? We get so weighed down by the day-to-day that we forget to see what we have been given. Our lives are so richly blessed and we so often forget to give God the glory for the everyday stuff. We are quick to praise him when something big happens, but what would it be like if we praised him for the stuff we take for granted?
I am thankful that my eyes were open today. However, my heart breaks for those without. Tonight, I feel compelled to pray for those in need. That they would know they are loved. Would you join me in prayer tonight? Before you fall asleep, would you just ask God to fill their hearts with comfort and love?
Oh, and don’t forget to thank God for all he has given you!
