It’s natural to have mixed emotions about homemaking. There can sometimes be little satisfaction in or seem to be little appreciation for your repetitive daily tasks.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord. ~Colossians 3:23a NIV

I used to think it was impossible to abide by Colossians 3:23 in that “whatever you do” should be done “with all your heart”. My homemaking heart was divided between trying to hold onto my joy and trying to hold back my searching for deeper purpose.

I learned that what Colossians calls us to is not about simply making a human choice to try harder to work with all our heart. It flows from spiritual transformation through God’s power to work “as working for the Lord”.

I’m sharing four steps with Biblical wisdom, practical actions and personal reflections to help joy flow from your heart to your homemaking this week at Living by Design Ministries.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~Romans 15:13 NIV

You’re honored for all you do in caring for your home because your work is an act of worship and love. God wants us to not just serve, but also to enjoy our lives. And it is possible when we follow His plan and allow Him to fill us with purpose, joy and strength.
