No Sorrow With It

This morning in my quiet time I was reading Proverbs 10, and verse 22 struck me: "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it." 

How often do we as wives and mothers sell ourselves short? How often do we end the day feeling as though we've accomplished nothing, even though our children and husband are fed and happy? There is a lie being spread that too many of us {myself included} have bought into. 

It's time that we STOP! Being a wife and/or mother is a blessing, and the Lord addeth NO sorrow with it. No sorrow doesn't mean some sorrow, it means NO SORROW! None. The dirty dishes, the moments for training, the laundry, the cooking, the sweeping, they all make you rich. You are richly blessed by the Lord!

Don't believe the lie for even one more day! And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. -John 8:32. Be free, choose joy, I know I am. 

At the start of this morning I felt so run down. I was tired, and was looking at everything I had to do as a burden, or something keeping me from getting my much needed sleep. But then after a cup of green tea and stealing away to spend time with my Lord I was able to see the truth. He has richly blessed me, and there is no sorrow with it. 

Today look around and see how the Lord has richly blessed you, and when it gets hard {because it will!} remind yourself that, He addeth no sorrow with it
