I don't have a passion for just one thing, career path, or field of study.
For a long time, I thought this was something lacking in me. Women today in the western world now have more options than ever before. So I figured if I wasn't working to take full advantage, that that was something lacking in me.
Im good or decent at a lot of things like a jack of all trades. But I found that this lends itself best to being a housewife/roadwife and companion. That, Ive come to realize, in itself is a good thing.
Im happier now than ever before, even though I don't have a career because Ive found purpose in making my husband happy and being a good wife.
The Bible says that the wife is to respect her husband and that her role is to be the helpmate. Rather than competing with the man, she complements him. Personally, I find this rather freeing. I no longer feel the need to do and be everything.
I see sister tabitha was here . You be encouraged my dear sister . The more we learn the things of GOD , the more we learn those scriptures , it does such good for our soul . Our help is THE LORD . And HE will give us as we have need . Let the glorious name of the Lord be praised .
Yes sister , we will find true contentment when our ways align with His . Let us all be fully persuaded to simply learn and follow the true pattern that comes from our Lord . Who is man , but dust and ash . The real question is WHO IS OUR LORD . OH HE is MIGHTY and Wonderful and worthy of all praise . We are simply saved by His grace . By the mercy of GOD , given us in Jesus Christ . Let our hearts be molded to His ways , to His words . Let the Word of the LORD be as the apple of our eye . Let us embrace His pattern in all things . Acknowledging He who has saved us in all that we do and say . Let our minds be above on Him Having all hope in He alone . Let us walk having fruits worthy of this wonderful repentance that God has given us in JESUS CHRIST . That we have all hope for our hope is IN CHRIST , IN GOD . Let us exhort one another daily . While we are in this world let our time be spent in honor of He who has saved us . And in everything we do and say , let us honor Him . You are loved sister . All are loved and above all, let us Love and honor GOD in CHRIST . For By HIM we have the ability to walk pleasing unto God . Yes , by the Spirit we can worship GOD as HE alone desires and in the way of Spirit and of Truth . Let us rejoice in the hope of our salvation , which is found only in Christ .
Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Php 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
I have learned a good career, being successful, and all that mess that goes with all that... its the way of the world. its what man esteems. and we esteem those who are successful above those who are not... even in the churches i have seen this. and its so common we dont even notice most of the time. have you ever read that a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth? God is not impressed with us because we have a career or we "have it all together" Now dont get me wrong here, because i am not saying that having such is evil, it can be a good thing. its not wrong to have these things in your life... but if our perspective is that job is whats sustaining our life... we have a problem in our relationship with God. check out what Jesus said:
Luk 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. Luk 10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. Luk 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: Luk 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
then the other part i want to touch on is time. Our seasons change in life. In my life i had a season where God gave me such a hunger to read the word. i couldnt get enough. and i read 8 hours a day minimum. i did look for a job then... but the door was closed. when that season was over more work than i could stand flowed in daily. God knows what He is doing, and He knows what He is doing in and with each of us. if your season is to embrace being a help meet... you will grow more in that, doing that, than anything else. aaaand, everything else is going to wear you down. This is just how God will do you. When your peace is full you are where God wants you, walking that path He chose for you... when your peace fades... you took a wrong turn. Stop, full stop, repent and get back on track. Let peace be your guide.
i reckon the currency of Gods Kingdom to not be dollars, pesos, yen, and so on. Instead the currency is love and mercy. I say this because we were bought with a price. Oh yes, let the poor say I am rich.
