What you do matters!

After making healthy lunches and folding the laundry, cleaning the dirty dishes and washing windows, helping with homework and going for groceries, feeling for fevers and driving to the doctor, it is easy for a mom to loose site of the end goal. 

If you are like me, you need to see the “purpose” for the seemingly endless demands a momma faces daily.  Let’s see what the Lord saysJ

Psalm 8:3-9

3 "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet
All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!"

Psalm 8 reminds us that we have been “crowned with glory and honor” and have been given “dominion over the works of His hands.” Likewise, the children He gave us are also “crowned with glory and honor” and will “have dominion over the works of His hands.”
 As you carefully nurture your “mini you’s,” remember that one day they will be managing homes, businesses, and I dare say our country! As they raise families, participate in their communities, cast their votes and live to God’s best and highest use for them, they will be changing people and events in their sphere of influence!

I want to encourage you, though the fruit is still a coming, your labor is not in vain!
The truth and love you pour into those little ones sacrificially today will directly affect future world events. Continue on friend, teaching them to love God and walk in His purpose and the authority He has given them.  What you do matters!
