I’ve been there. Hiding in my room during nap-time wishing I could just take the rest of the day off from motherhood—or snapping at the kids while they wrestle and giggle (they’re just being kids). I’ve sat on the floor in my closet crying and thinking, “I can’t do this mommy thing” and then cried some more for even thinking it.
But each time I fizzle out of patience, vision, and fortitude, I’ve learned to ask myself two questions:
- When did I read the Word last?
- How is my prayer life?
100% of the time I feel burned-out, I have been disconnected in my thought life with the Lord.
This week, let’s fill our mind with truth. Let’s cast our cares on God because He cares for us. Let’s take one step closer so we are one step further away from burn out.
For me, I am putting my Bible open on my bed stand, so when I roll over in the morning—instead of grabbing my cell and checking Facebook—I am going to take a moment and put my face in the Good Book.
‘Cause when mom burns out, everyone suffers.
God bless you, mamas and have a great week!
THIS WEEK: Choose one simple, no stress way, you can get your mind in God’s Word consistently to nourish your heart—’cause you are worth it!
