This morning I went to MOPS. I always have a great time but, today was better than normal. The lady that did our devotional talked about how God gives us enough time in each day to accomplish what HE wants us to do. Yes, we may not have all the time to get the things done that WE want to do or that we think are so important. But, God has given us enough time for us to accomplish what He needs us to each day.
I really appreciated hearing this because yesterday was just one of those days. I was home all day, doing laundry, cleaning, just doing my chores. Normally, that would've been fine with me. I like to have Monday be the laundry day. I try to wash all the laundry in our house and fold it. Then Tuesday I can put it away and I feel good about that. It's just a routine that I am in and I like routine! Anyway......yesterday I just found myself having a pity party and not enjoying my daily life at all. I felt like it was so boring and that I should be doing something so much more exciting and creative. I felt like being a housewife and getting stuff done was just something I didn't want to do anymore.
Well, the reality is that yes, laundry, cleaning, changing diapers, feeding my precious baby and normal life can all get boring. Especially the laundry and cleaning but, my desire has always been to be a stay at home mom and housewife. God has called me to do this. Maybe I don't need to always be so crazy about having everything done. Maybe I should not get all stressed out when I don't have everything on my list totally accomplished. But, taking care of Judah and our home are my jobs and I need to be JOYFUL in what I am doing. I need to just remember that God has given me enough time in each day to do the things that He needs me to do. I wonder what my to-do list from God would look like? Now, that is an interesting thought!
