Never forget the value of what you do in your home.
Whether you are dusting the furniture or wiping bottoms,
Reading a story or comforting your toddler at the doctor,
Wiping down the table or on your knees praying,
You are shepherding the hearts of your kids.
You see, it takes all of that…
The putting on of Band-Aids and answering emails…
To affect the lives of children.
Each day you wake up to these blessings of Christ wrapped in your flesh and bearing your name
And you stand in the gap for them
Doing what only you can do
And all the things that are so hard to do…
Each day you are the watchful eye of Christ
The just Hand of God
The comfort of the Holy Spirit
The Heart of the Savior bursting with care and intent.
Oh, I am well aware that’s not how you feel every day…but somehow… the ministry of motherhood goes forth from your life
Lives are changed…
Whether your heart is in it that day or not.
Because He delights in using broken vessels for His glory
