This song came up on my Casting Crowns Pandora station this morning
and it really spoke to my soul.
Cause when I'm weak, You make me strong
When I'm blind, You shine Your light on me
Cause I'll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don't need me
How amazing to find that You want me
So I'll stand on Your truth,
And I'll fight with Your strength
Until You bring the victory,
By the power of Christ in me
Can I be real for a minute?
Lets face it, life as a stay-at-home-mom can be tough. The last few weeks have been kicking my tail pretty hard. James has started teething, Corrie has entered the 'terrible-twos' and I've been trying to potty-train Emma during her 'threenager' phase.....please tell me this is just a phase.....and life in general has just been busy. There are days when I don't think I can get through another day. I am learning to cast my cares on Him. And when I do, something happens. God reaches down and shows me He cares. It's usually something small. An 'I love you' text from Sam. An unexpected snuggle from one of my littles. An encouraging post on Facebook. Someone randomly tells me I am "rocking it" as a mom. A sweet text from a friend. Or just the right song comes up on Pandora. And I could go on. Little things. But they can mean so much.
So, to all the moms out there that are about to pull their hair out. Trying to cram some food down while nursing and paying bills. Or drinking your 4th cup of coffee for the day. Or are putting that toddler back in bed for the upteenth time. Cast your cares on Him, for He cares for you. And together, you got this crazy hard thing called being a mommy!!! <3
