There are many days I struggle as a Mommy. I am a overworked, overstressed, overtired Mommy. I forget to refuel the tank and I run on empty. Being a mom is the most rewarding job ever. It is the best job, but many days I feel exhausted and a dire need of a break. Thankfully, I am not alone.
Today I was encouraged. I read this below.
Remember Mommies: ...that we need to partner with Him to help us feel refreshed so that we can pour into the ones we love His amazing grace and mercy. Life-givers! Drink deeply.

"In this very moment while you are reading this, your God is absolutely, wildly in love with you! And he wants you to know it. Ask him to help you. He wants to be so very close to you; to live your life with you, every moment.

We don't mother alone. We partner with God in mothering - in bringing forth life in another! While our own hearts drink deeply and rest in God's good heart, he "mothers" us - so that we continue to become ever more truly the women he created us and intends us to be - the women we truly are. Life-givers. And utterly captivating."

  2. Isaiah 66:13
    As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you.

    This is a verse I turn to in these times. God is not only our Father but he can give us the Mommy hugs and kisses too.
