Here Is The Help Us Weary Mom's Need
At times I feel overwhelmed by the demands of motherhood.

Some days I feel like "Mom!" is a bad word.

Especially when you are trying to have a moment alone, say, in the bathroom and some child, from teen to little, is calling you repeatedly to find their socks that you just put away in their drawer not five minutes before.

Look for socks in your sock drawer? What a novel concept.

Anyway, I was reading my Bible this morning and came across this verse.

Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For my
yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Mathew 11:28-30





I was reading a commentary by Diane Head and this is what she says about this verse.

"If ever anyone needed rest, its today's mother. And I have great news. There is rest for us-a rest more rejuvenating than a long and leisurely nap, and more soothing to frayed nerves than a Brahms concert. This rest reaches into the depths of our souls and claims us from within."

Hey, I want that! What about you?

There is nothing better than rest for the soul. Our emotional, physical and spiritual health are all connected to it. The only way to receive this rest is to sit at Christ's feet and hear his word. We need to take some time out of our busy mommy schedules to learn more about who He is and what he is like.

So, the next time one of the kids is yelling at me during my quiet time I'm going to yell back "Leave me alone, I am refreshing my soul."

I can hardly wait!

I get a little sidetracked from time to time. There has to be time for us too. Thanks for the reminder.
