Dear Weary Mom,
I see how you are dragging through your day, worried about tomorrow, and regretful of yesterday. How there’s an endless to-do list always waiting, one child complaining and another yelling. How shoes are strewn and puzzles mismatched all over the floor, with the fridge empty and tummies hungry, because there’s not been time for the store.
I see how you want to clock out and run away from it all.
How do I know?
Because I’m living this weary-mama life right alongside you. I’m in the trenches with you, struggling to prioritize, fighting to seize moments, longing to slow down time, and not lose my own self in the process.
I’m with you, living in the tension of giving, giving, giving, with the desire to be cared for too. And I’m convinced this tension is the life of a mom …
Today I’m over at Hope for the Weary Mom, encouraging weary hearts who are caught in this tension of motherhood.
Feeling like they are running on empty, yet longing to be filled up again.
And learning that when we want to run away, is when we need to run to Him.
Last month I shared there too, about the changing power of God in our lives … how our kids learn to love God as they see us surrender to His change in us.
Because the goal of motherhood is not to be right, but for our children to meet their Savior.
May you know today, whether you’re a mother or not, God is with you. He cares about whatever you’re facing, and the details of the tension in your life. And in those moments when you want to run away, may you remember instead, to run to Him. Because He is all you need.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Philippians 4:19-20 (NIV)
Won’t you join me over there today?
