Do you ever feel overwhelmed in life? Do you sometimes wonder how you are going to keep all those balls juggling in the air? And, if you drop a ball–well, it won’t be pretty.
There are many pressures on us as moms. Usually, we are the ones who keep up with the homework schedules, lessons, practices, games, lunches, meals, activities, cleaning the house, volunteering at our child’s school, being balanced–not to mention those actively involved in ministry–and some of us top it all off with a lpart time job. Should I even mention adding a hobby or exercising?
Okay, I’m already tired!
Jesus promises in His Word that He will never give us more than we can handle. If we have taken on too much we cannot blame Jesus for that one.
My prayer for you today is that you will stop before your schedule even starts. Ask the Lord for peace instead of stress and strength instead of fear. Invite the Holy Spirit to give you what you need to do this day. Sometimes we just need to lower our To-Do list expectations.
The Lord knows what you have to do and does not expect you to carry it alone. He is with you. Ask Him to help you order your day, to give you joy in the mundane dailies of life.
Psalm 16:5-11 (New International Version)
5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;
you have made my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
