So in the moments where I feel out of control or caught off guard, when I feel exhausted and just want a break, I look to the Lord (in prayer and through scripture) and what he’s promised me.
He’s promised me rest in him—“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
He’s promised me wisdom—“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding...” Proverbs 2:6.
In fact His word is all I need during this season and beyond—“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence...” 2 Peter 1:3
Are you a new mom? Where do you find your strength during this season of transition?
