Word to the Weary Mom

It’s a  whispered plea for energy as a baby cries in the middle of the night.  It’s the weary body in need of an extra dose of grace to make it through the midnight hours.

It’s a request to reveal the significance of the seemingly insignificant.  It is a need to see the purpose behind the apparently menial and never-ending tasks.

It’s a wounded heart elbow deep in soapy water seeking just a moment of peace in the midst of an otherwise chaotic life.

It’s the desperate prayer for more hours in the day to handle the career, the home, and the family.

For a weary mom, this is often the extent of her time with God.  It has become a muttered request under her breath as she moves from one activity to another.  It is a desire to spend time with Him mixed with the shame of not knowing how to make the time.

If this sounds like you, please know that you are not alone.
