Being home with your kids for years sure doesn't feel like a calling when you are in the midst of it. Seriously, how could it? Diapers, dishes, laundry, picking up, cleaning up, settling fights, giving baths, reading endless stories, constant food prep, things in the toilet, and more. Then repeat. Day after day after day. What kind of calling is that?
A very important one, m'dear.
For as you find your place of contentment in the midst of it all, God will be molding you to be faithful in the little things that last for a long time which makes them big things in His eyes.
And guess what? That habit of faithfulness in little things will lead you to a calling to be faithful in much bigger things. Things that will stretch you and challenge you beyond your capabilities; yet, you will know you can trust Him completely because He has proven Himself faithful for so many years.
So keep on keeping on right where you are because this is your calling at this moment in time Find your place of contentment. Discover His faithfulness. And know that you can trust Him wherever He takes you in the future!
