Scripture For The Weary Mom

Tired mom you cannot rely on your own strength to do your job! Sometimes you will get tired, weak, and frustrated from laying your life down for others..from staying up late..for getting up early..for dealing with temper tantrums.. piles of dishes…and laundry. Through all the trials and tribulations of life it’s easy to lose our focus..our purpose…our goal.. of raising Godly children!

Whenever discouragement kicks in it is time to fight back with filling your heart and soul with God’s living word. Dig deep, push yourself into a deeper walk with Christ, more reading of His word, and scripture memory. Push hard and you will push on through to the other side of this! The victory! The peace! The refocus! Remember it is only for a season!
