Haggai 2:4–Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the Lord; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land,saith the Lord, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord of hosts:
God has called each of us to different journeys. Some are parents, some are not. Some are spouses, some are not. Some are preachers, others are teachers. Some are singers, others are pray-ers. We share some commonalities, but none of us have the same kids or spouses or exact voice, so we each have a unique job to do for God. My daily life is not identical to another’s. I face different struggles, and they affect me differently than they may affect my neighbor. But, one thing is certain, each of us are to do our best work each and every day for God. To put our best foot forward, our best prayer-minded dedication to the job before us each day. I am not a preacher, but I can still spread the message of God’s love to my children and the people I encounter. Sometimes God asks me to sing at church, but not very often. What I do do everyday is sing in the car, and my children see me praising God while I’m driving. The way I live–the way I work (these are synonymous to me)–for God teaches my children something. What do I want to teach them? That I am strong because of my faith in God. That even on the rough days, I lean on Him. When Mommy is a little grouchy, I still love them and I am sorry. My daily work mostly revolves around my children. Yours may not. But, whatever it is, whatever environment you live in each day, make sure you are doing your absolute best work for Him. He is with you.
