But the everyday tasks as a wife and mother can be overwhelming.
My brain is so full of what happens when our nest is empty.
How did we get here so fast??!!
And then this scene from the movie is suddenly before me.
He reassured me yet again that He has performed the Great Deed and all He asks of me is to simply trust and obey... especially in the small things, for they matter greatly.
1 John 4:12
It is in the faithful small deeds that accumulate to great character. No one time "Great" deed can make up for a lifetime of slackness. In every faithful little deed, I am revealing over and over again, Christ in me. In every prayer, in every humbling service, in every gracious word where His will and Spirit reign over my fighting carnal nature that He is glorified as I am being sanctified.
Only the blood of Jesus makes me acceptable to God. But it is the daily blood-letting of this carnal nature that I painfully decrease so that by His life-giving blood "transfused" in me, He may increase. Daily dying leading to daily living of a powerful, resurrected life.
