I'm sure I could have been many things. A manager of a successful company. A compassionate nurse. An important administrator. The owner of a restaurant chain.
The success, power, and prestige that I could have gotten from working outside my home could have been a possibility. Sure.
But I wouldn't change it for the world to see my little ones grow up. To be with them, day after day, and witness God's hand in their life.
Because I am their manager. I am a compassionate nurse. I am an important administrator. And most days, I run a pretty successful restaurant chain... even if I never get the praise for it. But most importantly, I'm raising little souls to love their creator God. What a high calling!
Colossians 3:23 say, "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men."
So to the mommy, whose days seem long, and you wonder if what you are doing means anything... it does! It makes an eternal difference!
And, lest I forget the mommies who sometimes deserve twice the credit, those mommies that work outside their home, because they have to, but their heartbeat is first and foremost in the home, God sees your heart and the work you do!
