From Chaos to Calm: Day 70
Scripture Memory: “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
Do you feel weary? Does life sometimes just feel like too much? I want to encourage you today to not give up! Remember, Philippians 4;19? “All things are possible through Jesus Chrst which gives me strength!”
There will be many times when things don’t go the way you plan; when life throws you unexpected curve balls. But when we rest our worries and fears on Jesus, He promises to take away our burdens! This is how we can have joy in the midst of trials and peace in the midst of storms.
The same God that calmed the storm and helped Peter walk on water can do the same for you! He offers you strength for the race and endurance for the test. He will not fail you if you just call on His name!
There have been many times in my life when I thought there was no way I would ever overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in my life. But you know what? I did. Correction. He did. It is by His grace alone that we even wake up each morning. Jesus reminds us that the God who watches over the sparrow will watch over us as well. We have nothing to fear if our trust is in Him. Give Jesus the victory over your life and He will not disappoint you.
We have looked at some tough issues. I am sure your conscience has been pricked, just as mine has been. The only way we will ever change is to follow our convictions. When our conscience is pricked, that is the Holy Spirit talking to us. Be sure to listen. Listen to that still, small voice. Let it fill your heart with hope and peace and wonder. Let it instruct you and teach you so that you continue to walk on the path He has laid before you.
As wives and mothers, we need to rely on His strength not our own and by doing so, we will leave a legacy for our families to follow. I know you have worked hard, but don’t grow weary. When you feel tired, when you feel like you can’t do another thing, cling to Him. He will provide everything you need to keep going.
Praise God that we have this hope!
Homemaking is so much more than cleaning a house, cooking food, and making sure your family has clothes to wear. Homemaking is about nurturing a spirit of warmth, comfort, and love in your home.
