Raising kids. Keeping House. Choosing joy, every day.

For When You Feel Weak

A reminder, “Be not weary in well doing.”

I’ve had so many friends this week who are really going through hard times. They’re discouraged, overwhelmed, dealing with sick friends, combative family members, big decisions that weigh on them, discouragement over spiritual failures, and women who are just.plain.tired from the daily battle- – the day in day out of motherhood.

When you are overwhelmed (or if it is “that time of month”) –it is NOT the time to assess your life.

Don’t think about the big picture, or even about tomorrow.

Just do the NEXT right thing today. Wisdom asks: 

What does God want me to say right now?

Who is in front of me, right here, right now? You ordained this, Lord! Help me to serve them.

How would God have me react here? Lord, help me to hold my tongue!

These kids still don’t get this math concept? Help me to be patient like you, Lord.

“In due season, you will reap if you faint not.” Don’t give up. One foot in front of the other while praying for strength. You CAN do all things through Christ, who strengthens you, who has already given you the victory in the end, who knows EVERY detail of your life and has ordained it for your GOOD.

I made this free printable so you can hang it where it will remind you to press on!
