God Can Use Us

Dear Weary Mama,
 
I came across the following quote;  I don’t know who wrote it but I thought it might be an encouragement to you.   
 
Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk,Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead…God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. 
 
When we are in the season of mothering, often times we feel unqualified for the job.  However, if the Lord has blessed us with children, He will be faithful to equip us for the job.  He chose us to craft and mold these little people for the future ahead.
 
When we lack wisdom (don’t know how to proceed) we need only to ask God.   If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  James 1:5   
 
When we feel weak, weary, and worn-down that should be our clue that we are operating in our own strength.  We need to pray and ask God to take the reigns (work in and through us).  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Philippians 4:13     
 
Give yourself permission to take a nap–no guilt.
 
Light a candle, make yourself a cup of hot tea, and give yourself a chance to just breathe–laundry, dishes, and messes will still be there tomorrow.
 
Memorize scripture that you can recall when the pressure of life descends.

We call it, “Dear Weary Mom,”

Dear Weary Mom Link-Up | Thursdays at www.hopeforthewearymom.com | Mamas in the trenches of motherhood, slugging it out every day for the hearts of their children…they need hope. So we’ve created a fun way for our writers, and other moms out there called to give hope through their words, to encourage each other to press on and press in to deeper relationship with Jesus. We call it, “Dear Weary Mom,”

Each Thursday, one of our writers from Team Hope will write a letter to a weary mom—an encouragement—and post it here on the blog. At the end of the post, we’ll invite you to join us by writing your own “Dear Weary Mom,” post and linking it up.

Count blessings, Kasey
