The Invisible Woman

A dear friend and her precious granddaughter just gave me the book, The Invisible Woman, by Nicole Johnson.  

It is light reading with the main focus concerning the idea of what a godly woman should be--an invisible woman who accomplishes the myriad of things she does for the Lord to glorify His name. Nicole Johnson compares the building of the great Cathedrals of Europe by many, many unknown artisans with godly women who choose to continue to build into other’s lives (mainly their husbands and children, but also people beyond this boundary) for a goal which they may not see now and perhaps will not see in their life time on earth.

This book inspires us to remember that in all we do-- no matter if it is of high value or our lowly chores --each effort is of great worth when we do it to glorify the Lord. This can change our perspective on every task, putting the joy of the Lord back into our lives.

“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, [give permanence to] the work of our hands."  Psalm 90:17

Whether you read this work or not, you can biblically know that when you keep your eyes fixed on Jesus you can live in His strength.
