Ramblings from a not-so-normal SAHM

“I will never . . . forsake you.”

Sometimes it is not the difficulty of life but the drudgery of it

that makes me think God will forsake me. When there is no

major difficulty to overcome, no vision from God, nothing

wonderful or beautiful— just the everyday activities of life—

do I hear God’s assurance even in these?

We have the idea that God is going to do some exceptional thing—

that He is preparing and equipping us for some extraordinary work

in the future. But as we grow in His grace we find that God is

glorifying Himself here and now, at this very moment.

If we have God’s assurance behind us, the most amazing

strength becomes ours, and we learn to sing, glorifying Him

even in the ordinary days and ways of life.

– Oswald Chambers
