Does the valley seem too dark?
Does the Mountain look too tall?
Does that next step seem too scary?
Does the task before you just seem too daunting?
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Our lives and schedules get hectic, our patience wears thin and soon chaos breaks forth. My friends, let’s reevaluate, Are we resting in Him, the One who gives Ultimate REST?
So wherever you find yourself at this very moment, maybe as a Mother you are just weary. May I just a moment and bless you, sweet sister you are doing an incredible job, I believe motherhood is a calling, a very important one and you are impacting young souls for the Kingdom. May this scripture bring comfort and Rest to your weary spirit: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~Matthew 11:28-30
“The process of shaping the child…shapes also the mother herself. Reverence for her sacred burden calls her to all that is pure and good, that she may teach primarily by her own humble, daily example.” ~Elizabeth Elliott
Perhaps you are in a season of waiting, and you wonder if that prayer will ever be answered. Will the time ever come that God says, “Go”? Waiting is a season that is tough, but it’s also a time of growing in your walk, drawing closer to the Father, resting in Him and may you find comfort in this precious promise: But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
“Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength… It is wisdom to take occasional furlough. In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less. -Charles Spurgeon
It is okay to Rest! The Father gives the best embrace and in Him there is rest!
