"Do you feel the need for more grace to love your children and see the gospel in your daily life with them? Then rest in His arms and admit your brokenness." -Elyse Fitzpatrick, Give Them Grace
I am there with you, sister. There are days I feel like I have messed up so miserably as a mama, and I feel too weary even to begin again.
"But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us." 2 Corinthians 4:7
The biggest danger in times like these is that we think we are all alone. But, there is good news. There is hope. There is healing. There is grace. There is love. And there is community. Jesus is waiting there for you, even now, waiting for you to pour out your weary heart to Him, to carry the broken pieces of your day to Him and allow you to watch as He makes all things new.
"We need days of failure because they help humble us and through them we can see how God's grace is poured out on the humble. It is on days like this that the words, 'The God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ.'(1Peter 5:10) will bring deep comfort and great joy to your soul." -Elyse Fitzpatrick, Give Them Grace
He invites you to rest in Him, and allow Him to comfort you and speak life and peace into your weary soul.
"Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:14-16
And, He has given us each other. We are not alone here on earth. He has given us this community of women here at The Better Mom. This is a place we can encourage one another, build each other up, and pray for one another.
So, let's do that. If you are a weary mama today, I invite you to leave a comment. It doesn't have to be much, even just your name, or your initials if you are too timid to let us know who you are.
But let's make this a community thing: If you leave a comment, will you please pray for the sister who commented right before you?
Let's begin a revolution of sister-moms holding one another up to Jesus. Together let's admit our brokenness. Together let's admit our need for Him to touch our hearts, lives, and souls today.
Let's reach out for that grace that He so freely gives....together. I'll leave the first comment.
