Help for Tired Mothers

Dear Christian mother, are you weary?

Maybe the exhaustion in your bones cries louder and louder.

Are you overwhelmed and feel like you are drowning sometimes?

Do you wonder how you can continue on?

What mother cannot relate to the fatigue, toil and yes, tears that this blessed life contains.

My own precious 5 month old is calling upon me many times in the night now, and my own body feels the toll of the giving of myself for another.

I am a vessel.

You are a vessel.

And the Lord promises to remember His own handmaidens.

So today, dear Christian mother, carve out the next quiet moment that you are able. Fix yourself your favorite cup of tea or coffee. Settle back with your bible and soak in these words that were preached recently at our church. Let the word of Christ revive you, soothe your ruffled soul and encourage your heart. There is help for tired mothers.
