Look Up

The need is great but the workers are few


When looking out into the wonderment of God's creation, I can't help but wonder what I am supposed to be doing.....

Is there some greater plan for me? Is there something BIG I should be doing with my life?

And then I hear His voice, deep within my soul, reassuring me, that my place is in my home, writing books for little ones, my feet dirty from walking around the garden. My accomplishments for the day do not amount to a 401K, but rather, they fill my spiritual and emotional account, as I taught myself the skills of making homemade laundry detergent and homemade peanut butter. I didn't solve world hunger, or alter the world on a grandeur level, but I did (and do) love my husband with all my heart and loved on Molly girl, praying fervently to continually be molded into the wife, daughter, sister, friend that God wants me to be.

The Heavens are vast, and life is full of promise; a promise not for comfortable living, rather a promise for abundant living. It's there, all you have to do is try.

Sometimes it is difficult to believe that we shouldn't be doing 'more'. But I am a firm believer that when we feel contentment, when our hearts are happy and at peace with the life we're living, that is where God wants us to be. There will be certain times when more is required of us and that is when He will let us know that we must step up and do what is expected. Until then, bask in the simplicity! Life is GOOD! :)
