"For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe." 1 Timothy 4:10
Sometimes we think that our trust in God will make life just perfect for us, but we forget that this trust will make those who are hostile to the Word reproach and ridicule. I heard a saying yesterday to the effect that, "If you are being laughed at or have pressure on you to conform to the rest of the world, you are probably doing something right."
It is not comfortable to be considered "strange" but when you decide to take the word of God seriously it makes others think you are strange. When you give up harmful vices that damage the home, others will not think you are normal. When you try to live a good, clean life and have a nice home life, it brings on suspicion and doubt.
This verse confirms this attitude:
"Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:" 1 Peter 4:4
In spite of the pressure others may put on ladies at home, life is mostly good and has enormous benefits. You will be loved and remembered for your contribution at home. In the commercial and industrial work area, your picture will not remain on the wall for long after you are replaced. But the home is deeply influenced for generations to come by the dedicated wife and mother. So keep doing what you are doing, because in time, you will see good results.
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galations 6:9
