Being a mother is the hardest thing I've ever done, but I know it's one of the most important things I'll ever do. These past six weeks have been extremely difficult, but God has been teaching me so much through it. My time with Him has become more precious to me, and He is showing me how much strength and wisdom He can give me when I feel so drained.
I feel so blessed to have two healthy boys, and being a mom brings me a lot of joy. It also has humbled me and shown me my weakness and need for God. For this, I am thankful. When I am weak, He is strong.
Several verses have really stood out to me during this time and here are a few of them. I hope they can encourage some of you.
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23
Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalms 28:6-7
By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me-a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8
