A friend recently sent me a Youtube video entitled "The Invisible Woman", by Nicole Johnson. It is incredibly encouraging. So much so that I have left it on my desktop all week so I can view it daily before the craziness of the day starts in. (If you cannot view the video, take a peek at this excerpt by Nicole.)
Here is a quote from Nicole, taken from her website, Fresh Brewed Life: "Mothers are making incredible sacrifices every day. And a sacrifice, by its very nature, is almost always invisible. If people saw and appreciated everything you did and affirmed you for it, it wouldn’t really be a sacrifice, would it? But to keep working for something you believe in, and doing things just because they need doing, is what mothers are all about. So it’s only natural they are going to feel invisible a lot."
So if you are feeling a bit "invisible" today, if you are wondering if the many monotonous things you do as a wife, mother, and caretaker have any value ~ be encouraged, because God sees what you are building. He sees the sacrifices you make each day, even when no one else does. You are building something great, but the results are in God's hands in God's own time.
"...with admiration for the greatness of what you are building when no one sees.”
KEEP ON BUILDING!
