To the Struggling Mom
Somewhere there is a mom who has a heavy heart and has cried many tears today.
Maybe she is just tired and overwhelmed with trying to be so many things to so many people.
Maybe she feels all alone in parenting, and just aches to have someone who could support her.
Maybe she is struggling to reach out and connect with friends and family, and feels so lonely.
I know somewhere, there is a mom out there who is struggling hard.
Whenever I think of my fellow mama, I think of Hebrews 6:10:
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
Your kids.. your family.. your coworkers.. your community... they are God’s people.
You doing all that you do each day is serving the Lord by serving His people.
It doesn’t go unnoticed.
He sees all that you do for them.
He also sees you when you feel empty and broken down.
Even there, He’s sees.
What you are doing now is not going to go in vain.
What you are doing now is some of the most important work of your life.
But remember.. He is a partner to you in this parenting thing.
He never expects perfection out of you.
He knows you will mess up and that’s where the beautiful gift of grace comes in.
So mama, no matter how hard this feels, know that it matters.
You matter, so much.
It won’t always feel this hard.
Take care of you, too.
And know that the Lord is so proud of you for serving His people.
