Tired Mamas, Here Are 2 Biblical Secrets to Finding Rest in the Busyness

Let me ask you a question: When was the last time you experienced true, real, glorious rest?

It is hard to answer, isn’t it? We are so very busy. Just in the last few hours, I got my kids off to school, packed for a speaking trip, ran to a parent-teacher meeting, researched nursing home options for my dad who recently had a stroke, reviewed designs for the house addition we need to build so my parents can move in with us, had lunch with my husband (have I even seen him this week?), and raced to the airport to hop on the plane.

We juggle so many demands that the idea of a life of true rest seems ridiculous. We search for solutions and are told “you just need to slow down.” But while that may be a great solution for a short time, it’s just not realistic for a lifetime!

Yet rest is a promise of Jesus—and in a way that gives hope to every weary woman.
