Someone recently asked me, how I did it? How can I be so involved? How can I have a job and a family and still do more?
I was once told serving Christ; being a Christian was a full time job. Well, it’s actually more than that.
I have a full time job. I’m an interpreter, and it’s the best job ever!
I meet new and familiar people, everyday.
I get the honor of being apart of someone’s health care team.
For most of what I interpret for, it’s to share information that will improve the quality of someone’s life.
THAT’S PRETTY AWESOME!
But it’s only a small part, a very small part, of who I am.
I’m a wife and mom.
This is a bit bigger than a full time job.
Even sometimes when I’m doing my full time job, I am called away to be a wife or mom.
I’m always on duty. During the day, and in the middle of the night.
And it’s great!
I get to serve my husband so he doesn’t have to worry if his house is in order, or if his children are safe.
And I get to raise my children in a way that they may one day become the men and woman that God intends for them to be, to do the things he intends them to do.
Being a wife and a mom is much bigger than my full time job, but it’s still just a part.
Being a Christian; being a follower of Christ, THAT’S SO MUCH MORE!
Take my full time job away.
Take my husband.
Take my children….and what am I?
I’m still a Christian.
I’m still a follower of Christ.
Would the remainder of my life still look like it?
My identity is in Christ.
Not in being an interpreter.
Not in being a wife.
Not in being a mom.
Being a Christian is EVEN BIGGER than my much bigger than full time job, of being a wife and a mom.
It’s who I am. All of me. First and foremost!
So does my life reflect that?
I hope so.
