Is the noise of children drowning out your thoughts this morning. Are you finding it difficult to get through your homeschooling today without pulling out your hair? Is your heart heavy over burdens and cares that face you?
Dealing with wiggly energetic children when you’re concerned about something else is so difficult. The pressures that push and pull on mothers often rob all patience. Yet, it doesn’t have to be that way.
True, it is never easy to be patient with young ones when stress is sitting on our back. The problem is that we are carrying the stress around at all. The Bible clearly tells us in I Pt 5:17 that we can “cast all your care upon Him; for He careth for you” God created us and this world don’t you think He can handle the situation you are facing today. I love the verse that asks us if we can add an inch to our stature by trying or worrying over it. It is impossible! We are simply frail humans, we don’t have the ability to overrule the problems of this world. we are helpless. Yet, there is one greater that does rule over every situation. One who can restore your patience in the middle of chaos.
If your heart is overwhelmed today, take a moment to step back. When I need quiet I find my closet. (I know if I hide in there, I just might get a couple of minutes of quiet!) Just take a few minutes to tell God about your heartache, and ask them to carry the burden that’s too great for you.
If you don’t have a personal relationship with Christ, He has made it possible for you to rest in Him. The Bible tells us, that all have sinned. It’s easy to see that today; sin abounds on every hand. The problem is that sin separates us from God, and carries a penalty… death. Romans 6:23, “The wages of sin is death…”, but we have hope. Jesus paid that “wage” for us by sacrificing His perfect sinless self for us. If we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ the wage of sin in our lives is covered or “paid” by Him. We become His, He cares for us… and we become a new creature. One that can rest in Him even when the mountains seem too high, the wiggly children too much, and the school work too difficult!
