Today, an amazing woman gave her story for Gods glory and she read the below poem. Much of what she said today will stay with me, but this poem was such an ahh-ha moment.
Please Read (the poem is in black and I totally had to write my own notes in blue, most of all read the poem that Roy Lessin wrote, it will bless you)!!!
She feared she was wasting her potential being a devoted wife and mother.
(What is my purpose? Do I do enough? Am I supposed to be doing something else?)
She wondered if the time and energy she invested in her husband and children would make a difference.
(Am I doing a good job at the wife and mommy thing? I look at other women and they seem to have it so together. Clean house. Dinner on the stove at night time. Time for cultivating their friendships. It seems everyone else can fit everything in. Am I doing enough for my family, are they happy?)
At times she got discouraged because so much of what she did seemed to go unnoticed and unappreciated.
(I do laundry, the dishes, sometimes the cleaning, I am the snot wiper, drink fetcher, paci finder, and desitin applier, I do not get a lot of thank yous when I change a diaper or feed a baby at the midnight hours, I usually wear clothes that were worn the day before or have spit up or baby food on the sleeve.)
"Is it worth it" She often wondered.
"Is there something better that I could be doing with my time?"
(ahh ha moment. God has appointed me to this great position.)
Your influence upon him is greater than you think and more powerful than you will ever know.
I bless him through your service and honor him through your love.
Your children are precious to me..
Ahh ha moment.
