by Roy Lessin as quoted by Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies – God Is Noticing
This strikes a similar theme as Kaleesha Williams recent ‘Appreciation Rant’ posted on Thursday Nov. 7th, 2014. Except that Nancy is attempting to enforce the thought process that you shouldn’t ever expect anyone to notice or appreciate what you do, making it okay for no one in your life to say ‘thanks’.
A woman once fretted over the usefulness of her life. She feared she was wasting her potential being a devoted wife and mother. She wondered if the time and energy she invested in her husband and children would make a difference. At times she got discouraged because so
much of what she did seemed to go unnoticed and unappreciated. “Is it worth it?” she often wondered. “Is there something better that I could be doing with my time?”
“It was during one of these moments of questioning that she heard the still small voice of her heavenly Father speak to her heart. “You are a wife and mother because that is what I have called you to be. Much of what you do is hidden from the public eye. But I notice. Most of what you give is done without remuneration. But I am your reward. Your husband cannot be the man I have called him to be without your support. 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. Even more precious than they are to you. I have entrusted them to your care to raise for me. What you invest in them is an offering to me. You may never be in the public spot light. But your obedience shines as a bright light before me. Continue on. Remember you are My servant. Do all to please Me.”
