God Is Pleased with YOU

Realizing God has called us (each of us) to a special purpose can be refreshing when we truly look at who we are in Christ. It is easy to walk in the path of motherhood and feel what do we have to offer the world when we are home? Home changing diapers, cleaning up spit up, organizing toys, following up with school work, paying bills, bathing another child, keeping the house stocked with food and supplies, feeding the troops in our home, and washing more dishes and clothes than any person can fathom.

It can feel we are missing out on truly making an impact on the lives of others, or are we?

What a great lie the enemy wants us to believe! That we make no difference and what we do is meaningless.

Today when you are changing the baby AGAIN.
Cleaning up a toddlers mess AGAIN.
Correcting the children AGAIN.
Paying another bill AGAIN.
Washing another load of laundry AGAIN.
Cleaning up that kitchen AGAIN.
Shopping for the needs AGAIN.
Fixing another meal AGAIN.
Walking around taking care of children, encouraging husbands, and supporting friends AGAIN.

LOOK and SEE...those little things you do, KINDA MATTER!

See your life with real eyes...

God created you for His glory and He rejoices in you.
(even in the midst of doing the mundane)
Evil desires you to feel worthless and ashamed.

God cleans your heart and lifts your spirits.
(even when I am wrong He can make things right and encourages me)
Evil weights the heart and keeps you burdened.

God rejoices in YOU.
(even when others may not be happy with me HE will always rejoice)
Evil wants to use you up, dump you, and leave you feeling worthless.

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the
flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things
of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the
mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the
flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it
cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however,
are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in
you. Romans 8:5-9

Today I am looking to see if I am walking in the flesh or walking in the Spirit? Knowing I matter no matter how worthless the task before me feels. A new perspective on who I am in Christ can lift the soul! How is your walk today?
