Motherhood Is a Battlefield

So, get up each day, hit your knees, and recognize that the precious members of your family are all at war.

Then put on the armor of God, ready to battle the evil one for your family, knowing that the Lord has provided eternal victory over the devil’s schemes once and for all.

Be strong in the Lord

When I’m weary and run down, it’s an instinct to curl up and retreat.

I long for rest for my tired soul and for peace in my troubled heart.

Yet God calls me to stand upon His promises of strength and to get up to fight another battle.

It’s through Him alone, I can face the disobedient child.

It’s through His strength I can show grace, instead of anger.

It’s through His strength I can speak words of kindness instead of the angry tones that rage within me.

It’s through His strength that I find the ability to keep going in those difficult times and radiate His joy to my family.

And God’s strength will never let you down or forsake you.

Believe that God is still at work

Despite the workings of the evil one, God has not abandoned His children!

He is working in the hearts and lives of our children, {and us, too!}.

He is listening to the cry of your mother’s heart.

He is working in ways we can not see, and no matter the situation, God still walks by your child’s side every day!

He knows your child’s thoughts. He formed your child before birth.

And He is still at work in their lives.

In the times my mom heart aches the most, it’s a comfort to know that God is molding and refining my children.

Don’t ever stop praying for God to grab a hold of the lives of your children and change their stubborn hearts.

“being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6

When I lay my burdens at the foot of the cross, I find that God restores my soul, and that the tension and negativity, melts away.

What’s left is a feeling of peace, as my heart gravitates towards God’s Truth and in that Truth, is where us weary moms can all find the one thing we crave, rest.

Moms, when your heart is weary, how do you renew your spirit?
