Jesus can Replace our Fears with Joy and Make Us Brave

Written 2.15.’21

My girl…
soaking in all this time before she turns 3 soon. 😭
I remember when I walked into the hospital while in labor with her. I was so afraid that I wouldn’t be able to take care of three kids.
I kept thinking “God, how do you think I’m going to keep them all alive?” 😅

Well we’re almost out of the diaper stage for ALL of them 😭 yeah Judah thinks it’s cool to go potty too.
And you know what, I was right. I can’t keep them alive but God can. He is the breath and life to our bodies and souls.

His strength in me is the only way I can be a good Mom. I can try to do all the “right” things but He is in control.

I post a lot about energy and no need for naps many days and it’s pretty cool not crying because I’m so tired all the time.

But you know what I’ve learned is even cooler and much more freeing as a Mom?
Taking. Time. To. Rest.
Saying this for the woman like me who feels like so many days she’s hustling when she just needs to stop and take the nap.
Take the screen time beside your babies.
Stare at their eyelashes.
Thank God for a husband that carried, yes literally carried me to the bed this evening and said, “Mommy needs to rest.” 😭😭
Today was non-stop, y’all.

You are so loved dear Mama.
Jesus never said we had to hustle and rush around in order to live.

We can trust Him to hold our tomorrow and all the things we don’t get done today. ❤️

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬ ‭
