God gives strength to the tired and weary mom.

I’m so grateful that the words in the Bible are alive and active. This simply means they not only applied to the people in the Bible days but they also apply to our lives today!

I had read Isaiah 40:29 many times but as I read it on this particular day I saw it with fresh eyes. It says, “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Those words were like a balm to my weary momma’s heart and a reassurance to my soul. The Lord is going to give us the strength that we need, the power that we need, and increase our energy. What momma doesn’t need that?!

When you feel like giving up as a mom.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” – Galatians 6:9

Mothering is hard. Consistent disciplining is hard. And, quite frankly, some days I feel like throwing in the towel and letting my son do whatever he wants to.

But as I read this verse I am reminded not to “become weary in doing good”…not to throw in the towel and give up.

The good that I’m supposed to do is to be the mom and the consistent disciplinarian that the Lord’s called me to be.

Yes, it’s tiring.

Yes, it makes me weak and weary.

But, here’s the good news. This verse doesn’t just say “don’t become weary in doing good.” It doesn’t stop there! It continues on and says, “For at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

If we are consistent in doing the good, “at the proper time we will reap the harvest.” Now we don’t know what the reaping of the harvest is, what it looks like, or when it will be, but He does, and I can just bet that it’s so, so good!

When the moment, day or week is hard, don’t give up

We can do this, friend! The Lord promises in Galatians 6:9 that we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up.
