Great Great!!! So naturally after reading a heading like this, I would stay seated and watch everyone else get up; not realizing I am the one who should be standing. OMG OMG OMG!!! I thought I was being the All-American stay at home mother and wife. I made things look so peachy keen, but internally I was seething and upset because I felt like I needed to be doing something that was worthwhile.
It wasn’t until two weeks ago that I had a transforming epiphany of how arrogant, selfish, ungrateful, resentful, and a horrible steward I was being. ( Not to mention I prayed forever and pleaded for Him to bless me with such a great husband and children) Man O Man did I feel like a dope, I had to be reminded that God isn’t impressed by titles, jobs, Corporate America, or anything else I think I may be good at hahahahaha. First things are first, and that was my family. Now it only makes sense to take care of family since every structure in this world is adapted from the family structure.
I felt so embarrassed, disappointed in myself, indebted, and like a plain ole’ IDIOT! How could I be so blind, how could I not want to devote my life to these beautiful people, how could I let the pressure of this world and money outweigh my family???? The funny part is…I was reading Matthew 6:33 “Seek ye first His Kingdom and His Righteousness and all these things will be added unto you”. I read and read and read and then I finally asked the Lord to explain how I can seek His kingdom first, well He showed me. GOD,FAMILY,BUSINESS not BUSINESS,GOD,FAMILY!!!
I got the biggest wake up call of my life, now I can truly say I am a happy work/stay at home mother. If I never accomplish anything else in the world or what society says is prestigious, I know for a fact that I am pleasing God by being MRS.MOMMY HARRIS!!! Thats all I need, everything is secondary!!!
Prayer for us:
Father God thank you for Your patience and Your love. I ask for forgiveness for sinning against you in word, thought, and deed. I desire to live a fulfilled life that brings you glory. I want to experience the abundance that You promised in your word. I will take care of my family as you would have me to, and I ask that you give me the supernatural strength I need to carry on. Thank you in advance!
In Jesus’ Name Amen
Love you all and I pray that this helps you like it helped me!!!
