As mothers we do not have vacation or sick days. We have a job that is literally 24 hrs/ 7 days a week. Our days can be exhausting and seem like bed time will never come. We have to wash laundry, clean the house, make the beds, walk the dogs, cook breakfast, lunch, dinner; Take kids to the doctor, grocery shop, pay bills, and much more.
How in the world are we suppose to find time for ourselves, or even better… our husbands.?
There is only one real energy source, and it is not found at the coffee shop. It is found in that moment when we come before the One who understands every minute detail about us and longs to give power to those who know they are weary and weak before Him. You may feel like you need a nap, but He never grows weary. You may feel weak in the knees, but He gives you strength. He provides guidance and wisdom and fills every single need of your heart. His charge will take hold and fill you.
>>>>>But here’s the catch: You need to plug into Him.<<<<<<
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. -Matthew 11: 28-29
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. -Philippians 4:8
When Jesus says that a key way to find rest is to “Take my yoke upon you,” He is gently rebuking us for taking on burdens that we were not meant to carry, and telling us to instead take on those purposes that He has created just for us.
Don’t let the enemy continue to keep your mind away from God. Distracting us with daily chaos is his goal. We need rebuke the devil just as God rebukes us when we try to carry more than we should. ^^^ It’s time for us, mothers to take a stand! The enemy has had access to your dwelling place long enough, and the Holy Spirit desires to evict him once and for all. It’s time for our homes to be inhabited by the glory of God and His Spirit with no room for the enemy or his schemes. 🙌🏼
WE WILL NOT BE SHAKEN IN ANY STORM any longer. We will find rest with Gods peace, and we will praise his name to the end. For our God is within us, we will not fall. For our God is with us, whom shall we fear? We as mothers need to stand and scream the words:
“For me and my family, we will serve the Lord, our God. – Joshua 24:15
