Who doesn’t feel the challenges of motherhood in 2020? Who ever knew you would have to be the teacher in multiple grades, the counselor, the gym and art teacher as well as the principle?
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Philippians 4:13 KJV
How many times have your quoted the above scripture in that last two months, probably more than all of last year. The reason it comes to mind so easily and is a mantra in your mind is because it rings with the sound of truth and faith. You can do all things in Christ, YES even this. God is able to help us in all the ways that man can’t so rest in the peace of God.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:7 NIV
Mother’s I encourage you to keep looking toward the hills from where your hope comes from. You and the kids will be ok because God cannot lie and he has told you that he is your help, he is your shield and your protection. These times are different from any times in our lives but we can learn so much. Learn to trust God in new ways, learn to depend on him not just for bills but also for mental stability. Start trusting that God is able to stir up your gifts and provide for you with the gifts he placed in you.. trust that he will cause your children to rise up and called you blessed. Believe that God is a way maker, a miracle worker and your ever present help in your time of need.
Never forget that God’s word cannot return to him void, it must go out and do what he commanded it. Trust that God will make sure your kids do not lose the knowledge necessary to be successful in the next grade. God created mathematics and mathematical concepts and he won’t hold that from your children. God created the ability to form words and understand and articulate them and he won’t hold that back from your children. God created scientific concepts and ideas and he won’t hold that from your children either. Trust God with everything and see what he does.
“God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you.”
Isaiah 26:3 ERV
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:”
1 John 5:14 KJV
“I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace as you trust in him. Then you will have more and more hope, and it will flow out of you by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13 ERV
