by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Enjoy Your Work
Editor’s note: More guilt button pushing and making others seem less ‘spiritual’ than herself. Believe that Nancy Campbell, along with Debi Pearl, lives to throw shade on other women, making them feel guilt and shame for not being completely perfect.
Do you have lots of work to do today. I do too.
Ecclesiastes 3:13 says: “That everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil–this is God’s gift to man.” Maybe you have a big pile of laundry that must get done. Instead of sighing about it, take pleasure in it! Sing while you organize it. Gather some of the children and teach them how you do it.
You’ve got to clean a certain room. Enjoy doing it. Praise the Lord for the joy of accomplishing another task. This is the joy of work. God gives work to us as a gift. When we work hard physically, we enjoy a good night’s rest. As we work, we get creative ideas on how to do things better or create something new altogether. New inventions and creations always come out of work. We revel in the joy of completing a task.
Your mothering is your greatest work. What a blessed work. It is a good work. It is the work the Lord has given you. Rejoice and take pleasure in it today.
