Missional Mothering

When my day is full, it’s so easy to be goal-oriented rather than soul-oriented, to see only the interruptions and not the opportunities.

But do I have more to do than God does? God, who runs the Universe and plans the future, who saves souls and answers prayers, takes time for me when I “interrupt” myriads of times through the day. And most of my “interrupting” is not to worship Him or to pray for His will to be done, it’s a frustrated cry for help. And He answers. With planets to spin and sparrows to monitor and hairs to count, He takes time for me every time.

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.–Matt. 9:36

May my children, my husband, and others receive the same grace from me that I have received from my Father. May the dishes and laundry never be more important than the souls of those around me.
