“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” ~ Isaiah 54:10
Since we are all sisters here, I am going to be completely honest with you all… I had this post all typed up and ready to go, then last night I deleted every word of it and started over. Let me explain.
Do you ever feel like you are at the point of just breaking? Like you go and go and hold it all in and then POOF it just explodes and then you feel like a terrible person? That was me last night. Dinner was a complete fail with my twenty-month-old little guy. He wouldn’t sit down, wouldn’t eat on the floor, and proceeded to just throw a fit. And… I lost it! I raised my voice at him and he balled. I felt like a HORRIBLE mom. I sat down on the floor numb as he cried.
Moments later, he came over to me and said “Mama”, gave me a kiss, and handed me a Hotwheel to play with him. I heard the Lord speak to my heart “How much more.” Whew, I was blown away by the way my sweet Father showed me His love at that moment. How much more does He love me? How much more does He forgive me and pick me up out of my broken moments? How much more…
We have such a good, loving Father that loves us unfailingly, unconditionally, and consistently. There is nothing we can do to change the Father’s love for us. Sometimes we just need to stop and be still and let Him pour His love on us. As mama’s, we are on the go all the time, yet He encourages us in His Word to be still, “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10a)
Know that I am the God who Loves you, Who is for you, Who created you, and Who knows every thought that you have.
Mama, if you are at a place where you feel like you are just going and going and pushing everything down, I encourage you to just sit for a moment and bask in the Lord’s presence and love. Let Him refresh you and restore you. Let Him fill you up as only He can. How many times do we try to pour out from an empty jar when He is waiting on us to just be still and let Him fill us up with His love?

🙏 Pray with me-
Lord, I pray for the mama who feels empty today. The one that feels like she just pours out and pours out until she just feels numb. I pray that today you shower her with Your Holy Spirit and pour out Your love on her. I pray that she will find a moment today to just sit in Your presence and let Your unfailing love fill her up. I pray that today she feels loved, encouraged, rested, and restored by Your presence!
