Bible Verses for Tired Mommies


Pin It

What a June!  We have packed in more appointments, therapy sessions, and lessons into these two weeks than anyone should in six months.  Add in a week long business trip for Daddy and the combined has taken a toll on this momma. 

As I sit here thinking through all of this, I realize that my heart desires to crawl into my Daddy's lap and just rest.  Doesn't that sound wonderful?

So where do I turn?

Pulling open my Bible, I can't help but think that God had tired mommies in mind when He placed some of these words in Scripture. 

I encourage you to drink these promises in. 

2 Chronicles 20:12
“…We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you."

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

Psalm 62:1-2
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.


1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.


Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

Isaiah 40:31
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose
.

Do you feel like you just crawled into your Daddy's lap?  I do. 

Thank you, Daddy, for the peace and comfort that Your Word gives to even tired mommies.



What Scriptures would you add to this list?

  1. I am a Mommy to two. One here and one in heaven. I have fertility issues and this is just what I needed to be reminded of as we try for number 3. God is bigger than my infertility and he loves me.

  2. I have to tell you, I've been using your "recipe" for baby wipes for awhile now for my eczema-ridden baby, and today I happened to notice (for the first time; yes, I'm a bit slow on the uptake, ha ha!) your blog header and other links.

    Today was a bit rough for me, as my daughter had another disappointing doctor's visit, which was coming off of a week-long stint in the hospital. I think the Lord knew exactly what I'd need to encourage my heart, and led me your way.

    Thank you for posting this - you have given courage to the heart of this tired momma!
