To all of my fellow busy mamas –
This is a tough season in life.
Little ones constantly beckoning for our every ounce of attention. Chores looming over us causing a never-ending sense of guilt. Desire to spend time with our spouses, our friends, and the seemingly constant disappointment when that alone time alludes us yet again.
What, just me..? No, I doubt that. Because this season is hard.
It’s also often lonely. Thankless. Exhausting. And if I can be real with you for a hot sec, for me, it often leaves me feeling constantly overwhelmed and underachieving. It’s. Just. Rough.
But it’s in this exact season – this time of constant busyness (and at times utter chaos), that God is calling us to slow. To rest. To be with Him, at His feet. My devotional this morning was titled “I’ve written you a love song”, and it was from the Lord, right to my heart. He’s calling me, and you, to stop looking at the never-ending to-do list and to just take a moment to be with Him. Just rest in Him. For just a moment longer.
So, I’m taking an oath and y’all are my witnesses! 😉 From this day, this moment, I’m going to do my very best to allow this crazy busy season to become a season of slowing. A season of taking a moment longer to just rest at the feet of the Lord. To hear His voice, and hear Him tell me “Stay, my daughter. Rest with Me.”
He loves is so very, very much, mamas. And only He can give us the strength, rest, grace, peace, and every other form of sufficiency we need to get through these hectic but wonderful days.
So, friends, will you join me?
I can’t promise you it will be an easy thing to do (cuz let’s be real, busyness is engrained in our DNA), but I can promise that it will always be worth spending those extra moments with our Jesus. He is more than worthy, and more than able to supply ALL of our needs.
