I sit and I work and I dry little tears and I fold the laundry some more.
These are the things I do for my family.
There’s this sense that it many times goes unnoticed.
Prayer, for me, for Him.
For the Us that He’s building between us.
Caring for His people, especially the least.
These are the things I do for my God.
These chores, these tasks, these burdens carried – they never go unnoticed.
Each bead of sweat for God is counted and known.
These are the things that will catch His attention.
That will go up as a memorial to Him, just like Cornelius.
I want to be a Cornelius.
I want to have my faith pull me into places and heart-positions I never expected.
I want to always be reaching.
I want to be noticed by the One that holds it all in His hands.
I want to build a life of memorials.
How are you catching God’s attention today? What are the memorials in your life?
