Dear Weary Mom,
Sometimes we just need to pause.
Life can move so quickly and we easily get caught up in all the rush of parenting, and child-care, and scheduling, and meal preparation, and…. Well, you know the routine. And that’s why you’re here.
I’ve been thinking about how I can encourage you, and one thought kept coming to mind:
Soak in God’s goodness.
But how to do this? Well, the how-to stayed in my head as well, and so I’m going to share that with you as well.
Yes, read your Bible. Yes, pray. Yes, spend time with your favorite worship music. These are all great things!
But here’s what I felt compelled to share. And I promise you – I’m going to do this, too, so you won’t be the only person on planet Earth who is going to do this!
Go outside – sun or rain, day or evening – pick a spot, stand firmly in that place, close your eyes and lean your head back. (Yes, really.)
Be present in that moment.
Thank God for your life, for His guiding hand in your life, and for all your blessings.
Pause in your day and just stand to soak up the goodness of God!
Let God be very real to you in that moment as you are quiet. Let the noise of the day gently fade away, just for a moment.
Let God remind you of how very much He loves you. Let Him fill your heart with what He knows you need in that moment.
Sometimes the thing we need the most, is the thing that’s hardest to do – to just pause. Let’s take a moment together, wherever we are, to pause and let God speak so gently into our hearts!
