We just got done with a 4 day weekend out of school. Fun was not a word I would use to describe it. Have you ever had one of those seasons of life? This mommy road has had some big pits along the way.
I was feeling very overwhelmed this morning when the Holy Spirit showed me this verse,
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:10
Help- to surround
Uphold- to sustain
That sure is comforting!! It's nice to know I'm not alone as I Mother my children. God will surround me, help me and sustain me! He's the One who gave me my job as a Mommy and He will help me fulfill it!
Then the Holy Spirit led me to this sweet verse this morning... a soothing balm to my aching soul.
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Laden- to load up (as a vessel or animal)
God knows I feel like a loaded animal some days!!! But He PROMISES if I come to Him He will give me REST!!!! I LOVE this promise!!
Thank you Father for this precious word this morning to feed my weary soul.
