Then Sings My Soul Saturday



Life as a mom can be crazy sometimes, and there are days when it seems that there is never enough hours in the day. But recently I was reminded, no make that convicted, that I need to do everything I do to God's glory.

 It is only by His Grace that I am where I am today. It is only by surrendering each and every day to Him that I get through the tough ones, trying to get everything on my to-do list done. I often (and I think most moms will agree) think that I have to be "Super Mom" and have the perfectly clean house, perfectly behaved children, but says who? Not God. He just wants us to do all we do to His glory. So wherever God has you right now, remember to do it to His Glory, not man's!

 Life is messy and He knows that, but He also says He will carry us through the mess of daily life as mom, He will give us patience, kindness, a gentle spirit and more if we only ask and surrender to Him. It doesn't matter if I am potty training my three year old, or sweeping the floor for the umpteenth time in my day, I am doing it for Him and showing God's glory to my family and friends.

So enjoy this new song from Steven Curtis Chapman, as he reminds us to do everything to His glory, because He made us and loves us!



Your picking up toys on the living room floor for the 15th time today
Matching up socks
Sweeping up lost cheerios that got away

You put a baby on your hip
Color on your lips and head out the door

While I may not know you,
I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes, does it matter at all?

Well let me remind you, it all matters just as long
As you do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
Cause he made you,
To do
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
Tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do


Maybe your that guy with the suit and tie
Maybe your shirt says your name

You may be hooking up mergers
Cooking up burgers
But at the end of the day

Little stuff
Big stuff
In between stuff
God sees it all the same

While I may not know you
I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes, does it matter at all?
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/s/steven_curtis_chapman/do_everything.html ]
Well let me remind you, it all matters just as long
As you do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
Cause he made you
To do
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
Tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every thing you do

Maybe your sitting in math class
Or maybe on a mission in the Congo
Or maybe your working at the office
Singing along with the radio

Maybe your dining at a 5-star
Or feeding orphans in the...
Anywhere and everywhere that you are

Whatever you do
It all matters
So do what you do
Don't ever forget

To do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
Cause He made you
To do
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace

As you do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
Cause he made you
To do
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do

In every little thing you do
In every little thing you do
