Faith in Everyday Mundanities

Friday, I made it to the end on the week. Only to be greeted with a morning of the kids fighting which ended in them breaking one of the kitchen cupboards. I don’t even know where or how to order a new one. I suppose I can call the builder next week (eyes rolling).

Eme got her hands on a purple highlighter and started redecorating her walls. As well as spilling water on my two week old laptop (it was okay-gratefully). Like I said though, it’s been a morning. We now call “Emersyn Wreck It Eme”.

The problem being I feel like this is my every morning, my everyday, my life.

If it’s not one thing, it’s another and I am constantly trying to play catch up.

Then I read my devotional today, Always Enough Never Too Much and it was all about having faith in everyday mundanities. Hayley mentions two faith scriptures that I want to share with you today.

If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘BE uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you
— Luke 17:5-6 (ESV)
Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
— Matthew 21:21-22

Faith can be such a hard topic and especially in mundane things. When I finished reading today’s entry I realized I haven’t even gone to the Lord about the little things that I feel like have been consuming my life.

Going to God about the “big things” is easy and can be like a no brainer. But, when it comes to having strength to break up another kids fight/arguement or the baby yet got into something else today. Those are the little things God wants to hear.

And I am so not good at this at all, but I also want to be remember by my kids that I had faith in the everyday.

In order to do that I have to bring the little things to him, so I can in return believe he will help me through them.
