Hello all you amazing moms of sons!
Before beginning with our first chapter from the ebook, Hope for the Weary Mom, I just wanted to thank you all for saying yes to God in accepting the challenge to seek Him in this very specific way. Our Father sees our hearts and knows exactly where we are. I can’t tell you how thankful and inspired I am that so many of you will be here each day. If you’re here, it’s no accident.
Also, I just need for you to know that this 7 Days of Hope is just as much for me as it is for all of you. Most days, I struggle to see past the next second. Often, I’m exhausted, worn out and unsure of myself and my abilities to parent these sons of mine. I’m weary. That is why I am so thankful for a God who knows and understands weary.
But in that moment buried within many other moments of your day, do you wonder….”How am I going to get through this? What next?” and maybe you answer yourself with phrases like, “I can’t do this anymore. This isn’t working. His heart is so hard. What about my rights? Where is God in all of this? I need a break. My weary heart and soul can’t take anymore.”
I find myself here in this place, all wrapped up in my own thought life and I need to know that there is HOPE…the kind of HOPE big enough to fill these empty and desperate caverns within. Is your well dry and in need of this kind of hope too?
I pray that this week together will bless us all immeasurably. I’m going to go out on a limb here and just say OUT LOUD that I’m expecting big things from our very big God this week. He can do it!
We’ll dig into our first chapter: When the Gentle Words Won’t Come, today in a separate post.
Thankful for each one of you here,
