How to Be Truly Satisfied as a Homemaker (No Pinterest-Perfect Home Required)
In today’s idea-rich online world, it’s easy to get a hankering for a life and home that are “just-so.”
I personally really enjoy home design and decorating. I’m not good at it, but I like to give it some serious thought and effort.
And I recognize that this can be a blessing to others, a reflection of God’s beauty, and a tool He will use for His glory, as it’s offered to Him whole-heartedly.
However, all that superbly-staged Pinterest perfection is not what will lead us to a satisfied life. We might think that it will or even has, for like a millisecond. But if that’s where we think our fulfillment will be found, we’re mistaken.
The Bible says,
“From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not; those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.” 1 Corinthians 7:28-31
The things we too often give our hearts to, the things of the world, are completely fleeting.
So, what does it mean to live a simple, contented life as a 21st century homemaker?
