31 Days To Clean {Join me?!}

31 Days To CleanLearning to {Live Life Fully Committed} forces us to stop and look at our endeavors and pursuits. Why do we do what we do?

Whether it’s a specific job, writing, blogging, homemaking, parenting, or loving our husbands… what’s the point? What is our motivation?

We’ve been digging beneath the surface, here on {In Pursuit} with the desire to {Live Life –with a heart- Fully Committed} to God.

For years I’ve been disappointed with the illusive joy promised by worldly endeavors. In 2010, when I made the decision to leave my place of employment and come home, I never imagined it would be here, between washing dishes and caring for my family, that I’d find the most joy.

It’s here, in the home, where I’ve learned who I am in Christ. Here, where no one pats you on the back and where my daily tasks aren’t glorified or raised up for everyone to see. Here, I’ve found the joy that comes from living a life {In Pursuit} of Him.

Am I telling you that you have to leave your job to find what I did?

No. Not at all. That’s a conversation you’d have to have with God.

What I am saying is this, the word of God commands older women to admonish us younger wives to love our husbands, love our children, and be keepers of the home (Titus 2:4-5).

See how that’s thrown in there? It was intentional. God wants us to be keepers of the home. It must be important. There must be something to learn in keeping our home.

I’ve been on this journey for about 2 and a half years. Scattered between the pages of {In Pursuit} you can find so much of that journey.

But what about those who want to go through this a little faster?

    I’ve been a “keeper at home” for 32 wonderful, blessed years. I thank my Savior every day, that He showed me the way home, and continues to urge me to find new ways of loving my husband and grown children. Thank you, Jesus.

  2. Reblogged this on O2B heavenly minded and commented:
    I should write a mission statement for housekeeping? People who write down their goals are more successful in reaching those goals, but a mission statement takes this a step further. When you have a purpose and understand it thoroughly because you’ve put it into words, you can accomplish even the most mundane tasks that are a part of the bigger mission. I think it also helps to call the mission by its more accurate name, ‘homemaking.’ Want to join me on this journey? Follow me and link up with {In Pursuit} through her post I’ve reblogged below.
