Today is a great day to encourage you. Lately, I have been so impressed with the hearts of ladies I talk to and women that write on this blog to encourage other women out there. So may I give a huge SHOUT from the rooftop and say you are blessing my socks off and I know a lot of other women share my affirmation. Many of you are young moms trying to honor the Lord in your marriages, raising your children, in your friendships and in your finances. Others are trying to make it without a supportive husband or have felt God call you to serve Him and you are doing it all by yourself. It is amazing to see and I am so proud of each and everyone of you.
My husband travelled when my children were young, as I know many of yours do as well. My oldest daughter told me recently that when she would hear me say, "the Lord would not put me through more than I could stand", that she would feel like I was upset with her in some way. I was horrified because all I meant was that I was tired from managing a household and taking care of children and I sometimes would feel like I might not be doing the best job. Needless, to say moms are misunderstood often and it is good when we can clear things up! In moments that I would be overcome by fatigue I would call on the Lord to give me the energy and physical resources I might need for that day or night. It wasn't pretty or perfect sometimes but God helped me and He will always help you, call out to Him!
The Bible says in I Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
From the rooftop:
Be careful what you say around your children :)
Give your day to the Lord
Give your worries to the Lord
He cares for you
He will carry you
I am praying for you and I am so grateful for each one of you. Have a blessed week.
