Ever feel like you’re a hamster running on a wheel? That every day you do the same things only to wake up tomorrow and do it all over again? There are still dishes to be washed and socks to be sorted. Day after day after day.

It might be easy for me to think “What’s the point in trying?”

 But I’d be wrong.

 Today, I may be weary and burdened. I may wrestle with feelings of loneliness, anger, fear, guilt, or self-pity. And the emotional hurricane tosses me around.

 Until I hold onto this anchoring truth. My life is not futile.

 Someone is in control and I have a purpose. A purpose beyond the mundane. Because He takes the common and makes it spectacular. There is glory to be found in my everyday life. Because He is there.

What I already have in Him is greater than anything I may want today. And that makes even washing dishes and sorting socks worthwhile.

(This Wednesday’s wisdom has been inspired by Six Hours One Friday by Max Lucado.)

 What about you? Have you ever taken a turn on the hamster-wheel of life? How did you get off?

    >Hi Candee –

    I'm convinced that doing laundry, cooking, and all the other mundane chores we do are an expression of love for God and our families.

    Susan 🙂
