Today's blog post is just to encourage you as a mother. Your job is world-changing and of the utmost importance. The day-to-day mundane tasks make a difference that cannot be calculated. You matter more than you may realize.
Do you believe what I just shared? If you have trouble believing it about yourself, do you readily believe about motherhood as a whole? Of course you do - if you didn't believe motherhood mattered, you wouldn't be a homeschooling mom.
In essence, you do what you do as a mom who homeschools because you believe it matters, to God and to your family. You trust God enough to do what He has called you to do; because you trust Him, you also obey Him. This is the secret to success in this life. (Note I didn't say worldly success ~ I'm talking about success in God's economy.)
Obedience in the small stuff leads to faithfulness in the big stuff. And some day you will look back over the annals of your lifetime to discover the small stuff truly was the big stuff. So make the most of today, because what you do matters to your family and to your Lord. You were saved and set apart for His good purposes, and if you are a Christian woman who homeschools then a big part of His call on your life will be done at your kitchen table teaching Geometry and the history of the Civil War.
George MacDonald said, "I find the doing of the will of God leaves me no time for disputing about His plans."
I think he's 100% correct - when I am doing what God has called me to do, I have no time to argue with Him about His will for my life.
Trust Him and obey Him & leave the results in His capable hands!
Day 116 done :)
