a holy privilege

“Ordinary work, which is what most of us do most of the time, is ordained by God every bit as much as the extraordinary.  All work done for God is spiritual work and therefore not merely a duty but a holy privilege.” (Elisabeth Elliot, The Shaping of a Christian Family, ch. 25)

No work done for our children is done in vain.  No work, no matter how mundane or seemingly insignificant, is unseen by our Lord.  “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10) Isn’t it encouraging to know that anything we have to do today was prepared long ago for us by God?

Keep the faith, keep serving, and take heart!  Happy Monday.

About Sara

I am a 30-something momma of two with a history of recurrent pregnancy loss. After receiving no answers from "regular" fertility specialists, I discovered that there is a pioneering field of fertility testing and treatment called Reproductive Immunology. The American College of OB-GYN's still does not recognize this field, but I felt strongly that women needed to know there might still be answers for them. I started a website to inform and encourage others to be their own advocates.
