Repost..A Measure of a Life

 

Oh dear one,
Do you ever wonder if you are making a difference? In the grand scheme of God’s world, if you are leaving any kind of lasting impression on those around you? Does the every day meals, the cleaning and laundry and the wiping of noses matter in this world?
God gives mothers a high and noble calling. To teach our children the Lord Jesus. To instill in them the gospel of grace. That they come to a relationship of their own with the Savior is the most important calling ever created.
Our daily tasks can seem so dreadful or dreary. We can get tired of the same old routine and feel unappreciated. But I assure you, that the Creator of the Universe sees what you are doing and He has called you to do just that. That no one else has what your dear ones needs. He created you purposefully for your family. Your children need what it is that He put in you.
Take time for yourself. By this I mean, take time to be alone with Jesus. Dig into His Word. Take time to dwell in His presence. We all need to be filled up. We need to recharge. We need to feed our souls and His Word is that food. Time in His presence is where we go to feast.

Do not let our culture, media, societal pressures to tell you  what the value of your calling is. Do not let anything discourage you from the God-given mission. Do all things as unto the Lord. Your children will rise up and call you blessed!

What mark will you leave on this earth? Take to heart these words from Corrie Ten Boom …

The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.
