Homemakers Working for the Master

Victorian Home

Oh dear, sweet fellow homemakers. I too hear the whispers. The sneers and snide remarks. I too see the judgment in their eyes.

Have you oft times felt defeated? Or worthless? As if we had no value whatsoever? Like what we do here in and for our earthly homes is of no use at all? Anybody could do this, right? Wrong!

Since when was it decided that homemaking (being a wife and motherhood) is no longer one of the Victorian Mother and Daughternoblest of callings? Why are women leaving their homes in droves? Why are the most important things being forsaken? Is there no longer any value in training children up for God’s kingdom? Is there no longer any worth in making a house into a home; making it a refuge from this cold and bitter world? Should our homes not be a foretaste of Heaven? A place to escape the evils of this world if not just for a little while? A place of calm and rest…a place to rejuvenate our weary souls.

While the scriptures do not prohibit women from working outside the home (see Proverbs 31), neither does it encourage women to seek careers that would take all their time and Titus 2devotion away from home. Our homes deserve more than leftovers.  God himself, through His word, has called us to be homemakers, keepers AT home. (See Titus 2)

Let’s stop believing the death-breathing lies of the devil and start believing instead the living, life-breathing word of God. Let’s overcome those feelings of worthlessness, trampling them with His holy word and replacing the lies with the Truth.

Victorian Homemaker

A paycheck will never replace what can be done for the glory of the Lord within our own four walls. That is our ministry first and foremost ladies. The one our God entrusted us with.  How can we impact the world for Christ if we have yet to impact the dear souls residing in our own home? Daily we must take up our cross and give it our all. Deep in the trenches of everyday life. Refute the feminist lies that tell us in order to have any value we need a title or degree that will Homemaker with childrenearn us a good living. My title is in Heaven. His name is Jesus Christ. And through Him I lay claim to things eternal. I labor for the Master. All I do, I do for Him.

How about you?

Blessings,

  2. I think the majority of young women would like to stay home with their children. But the voices of others tell them they have to keep up with the Jones and in order to do that both parents must work. Until people are ready to live in neighborhoods they may not like, in houses that may not be ‘show-off’ worthy, drive cars that are not fashionable, but practical and affordable, they will continue this cat and mouse game. Sad, but true.
