Why Not Me?
My homemaking journey did not start like how the average journey starts. I started at 14. With my mom being a single parent and struggling to make ends meet it was hard for her to work 10+ hours a day and come home to tend to everything. So as the oldest I stepped in. She never forced me or asked me to but I couldn't just sit and watch and do nothing and while I've always wanted to be a homemaker this wasn't how I imagined I would start.
I used to ask myself “why me?”. I used to view the mundane as unimportant. I used to think that I could do better. That even though yes I was taking a few things off my moms plate I could do more. I'm wasting my time. God would be more pleased if I were to do something more meaningful as if the mundane was meaningless.
But if there are dishes to be washed why shouldn't I be the one to wash them?
If there are meals to be made why shouldn't I be the one to make them?
I used to categorize tasks/jobs trying to decide which was more important than the other. Wondering what would matter more in God's eyes but the Lord does not look at titles. He doesn't categorize the tasks we complete daily. He looks for faithfulness.
No job is more important than the other in His eyes. What matters is if we are faithful servants with the jobs we have.
May we be found faithfully tending to the needs of our homes, jobs, families, etc...
Whatever season we are in right now; may we be found faithful not for our glory but for His
Until next time sweet friends
Colossians 3:23-24 (KJV)
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
