5 minute Friday: Rest
Yesterday was a hard one; one of those “Mama is a hot mess and will be staying in yoga pants all day” kinda days. Frustrated with parenting, crying babies, non-nappers, and little sleep the night before, unfair & unmet expectations of the hubby. Funny how much of it comes down to sleep.
I woke up this morning, determinded to have a better day- and this time starting with Jesus and breakfast. I found myself in yesterday’s Jesus Calling devotion. “In a world characterized by working and taking, the admonition to rest and receive seems too easy.” Sarah Young. Psalm 46:10 was connected: “Be still and know that I am God.”
Today I choose to set my frustrations and grumbling aside in exchange for the peace of The Lord. Making time in this crazy stage of motherhood. Choosing to rest purposefully and receive the blessings of my Savior. Thank you Jesus.
