Being thankful in the mundane.

Being thankful in the mundane has been running through my head these past six weeks.  It’s been a recurring theme during this Proverbs 31 bible study.  Remember that it is He you are serving, He you are glorifying. 

In all the wildness of being a wife and mom it’s hard to feel the joy in washing mounds of laundry, sweeping crumby floors and changing dirty diapers.  I’ve really been trying to make an effort in praising these seemingly monumental tasks set before me each day. 

‘Thank you Lord that I have a house to clean, a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in.  Thank you so much Lord that I have a washer and dryer to clean my clothing when I so choose. Thank you that I send my children to bed with full bellies even though most of it ends up on the floor!

I thank you Lord for the massive amount of toys I pick up each day because the pitter-patter of little feet is something I prayed for relentlessly for months on end.  I will remember I don’t get to pick and choose the best parts of this life I chose.  It comes as a package deal.’

Is there something in your life you are really dreading?  Something that causes a screaming, writhing, fist-pounding fit inside?

Might I suggest looking at the alternative?  It has really aided me in remembering to be thankful for what I do have rather than wallowing in pity. 

Since I am still working on my thankful list I’d love to hear your thankful in the mundane prayers!! 

If you enjoyed this post, say thanks by sharing it!
