The Beautiful Ministry of a Homemaker
The beautiful ministry of a homemaker is a gift that I deeply desire to have. I can never truly understand why homemakers are undervalued in today’s world, because their love and wholehearted dedication to the home blesses the family with a haven of rest, comfort and belonging. Homemakers create such a beautiful space of serenity and replenishment for their loved ones. Without the ministry of a homemaker, I believe that the places that we reside in would merely be house and not a home. It’s those wonderful touches that make such a big difference. Such as, a lovely fresh homemade dinner. A clean and tidy space. A peaceful and secure environment. Aesthetically pleasing surroundings. I can imagine family members coming back from a long day at work thinking, ‘home sweet home’. For a home is a place of security, shelter and tranquility from the busy, chaotic world. It’s a place where family members can put their feet up and rest. Where they’re able to be belong, to be loved and be nourished in body, soul and spirit. The home is also a place where family members can spend quiet time alone with God. My desire is that when I get married, I’d like to create a home so beautiful, that my family will delight in the peaceful presence of our home, and feel safe in our dwelling place of love.
to the single lady who desires to be a homemaker…
Dear single ladies, I know exactly how it feels to desire to be a homemaker so deeply. That longing to have a husband, serve him and your children within the home, and create such a loving space for them. I know how difficult the waiting period can be, when such desires are pressed so profoundly upon your heart. But I want to encourage you, that God sees you. Your Heavenly Father is so passionately attentive to the deepest desires of your heart, and He truly cares about them. He loves you, and He comprehends your longing to be a mother, your yearning to be a wife. Your desire to have a home, filled with happy children and a loving husband. God cares. He cares so much.
The desire to have the ministry of a homemaker is so beautiful and biblical…
“the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behaviour, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.” – Titus 2:3-5
Hold on with faith, with all of your heart… and do not let go of God. I understand how discouraging it can be sometimes, especially if you’ve been in a period of waiting for so long. But the Lord truly understands what we need, and what His perfect desire is for our lives. In this season, I’m learning to fully surrender. Surrendering my will, my heart, and my longings. In order for Him to be exalted, and for His will to be established in me. I’m learning to delight myself totally in Him, and allow Him to shape my heart in alignment with His desires for my life. ♡
“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4
You are so cherished and adored by God ♡. Continue to trust in His plan and timing for you, because there’s truly nothing to hard for Him. All things are possible to those who believe ♡♡♡
