What a June! We have packed in more appointments, therapy sessions, and lessons into these two weeks than anyone should in six months. Add in a week long business trip for Daddy and the combined has taken a toll on this momma.
As I sit here thinking through all of this, I realize that my heart desires to crawl into my Daddy’s lap and just rest. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
So where do I turn?
Pulling open my Bible, I can’t help but think that God had tired mommies in mind when He placed some of these words in Scripture.
I encourage you to drink these promises in.
2 Chronicles 20:12
“…We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you.”
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Do you feel like you just crawled into your Daddy’s lap? I do.
Thank you, Daddy, for the peace and comfort that Your Word gives to even tired mommies.
