Casting all your cares (all your anxieties, all your worries and all your concerns once and for all) on Him, for He cares about you (with deepest affection and watches over you very carefully).
Lord we cast all our cares and concerns we have today for our children and our own health. We thank you for caring for us with such deep affection as you watch over us with care! Amen
The Word is alive and so powerful! We have been given an awesome gift to be able to read it and have it apply to us personally. As we embark on a new day filled with tasks, activities and duties, do so with eyes wide open, looking for God's handiwork in every area! When blessings come be reminded that every good and perfect gift is from above! When things work out think, "Hey! That's the favor of God!" When it seems like everything is falling apart, recall God says , "I will never leave you or forsake you!" When its just too hard and overwhelming, then let Philippians 4:13 encourage you, "I can do all things which He has called me to do, through Him who strengthens and empowers me to fulfill His purpose."
Right now if you are expecting, baby is growing inside of you, you are already a nurturing mother with an important job to do. Trust me when I say, I am needing this advice myself! I can feel like I am not doing enough and begin feeling inadequate. Right now is a precious and very important time as you care for your little one and yourself.
Eat healthy, take walks, get fresh air AND read the Word ! The Word is life and health to our flesh!
Do not underestimate the power of the Word! Do not allow yourself to think you are not doing enough.
There are definitely days as mothers the busyness of life and daily tasks will eat up your time. I can also promise you the world will try to make you feel like you need to do more, make more money, be busier or do something that has "real value". I have been caught in this trap of ruination, don't go there Moma! You are granted a season to be used by God, each of us in different ways, but know your calling as a woman and mother to children holds a unique and divine purpose!
What could have more value than caring for a human life created by God?! Treasure this season dear mothers and value each messy moment! Let your family see you turn to God for help and see you make mistakes and then go to the Lord together. Oh, you can ask any of my kids I make mistakes plenty of them! Somehow I find peace in that; I am not giving them an unattainable standard and I point them to Christ, because I just can't do it without Him. Maybe in light of the entire picture, its not such a mess but rather REAL LIFE!
The Lord never designed us to be alone but to partner with Him in this noble endeavor. Trust Him to be the builder of your home and family. Each person and each family is unique and He cares for us personally! We have a very personal God who loves us!
You are loved and have great value and purpose!
Go into this week Moma knowing you got this...and God has got you!
As your Word says You exalt us to a place of honor at the appropriate time. I trust you and know you care for me and my family! I have no anxiety, I am free from worries! You watch over my family every day!
Lord, I humble myself under your mighty hand and set aside pride. I choose you and your Word to govern my thoughts and my life. I seek you first and know you take care of all I need. Lord thank you for sending your Son Jesus to bring us a victorious life in Christ. In Jesus Name Amen
