Scriptures to Encourage Moms

Just wanted to give a few scriptures to encourage us moms.  God’s Word is relevant no matter what season of motherhood we are in – whether our children are helpless infants and need our assistance in their daily activities, or they are grown adults whom we are helpless to assist in their daily struggles:

1 Thessalonians 5:24

    Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it.

Exodus 33:14 

    And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” 

Psalm 94:13 

    That You may give him rest from the days of adversity, Until the pit is dug for the wicked. (rest means power to calm myself)

Psalm 94:19 

    In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul. 

Psalm 131:2 

    Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me.

 Isaiah 26:3

    You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You,  Because he trusts in You. 

Matthew 11:28-30 

    Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” 

Col. 3:15 

    And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 

2 Tim. 1:7 

    For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 

Psalm 34:5 

        Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;  no shadow of shame will darken their faces. 

So Moms, let us look to God unashamedly and radiate with joy, because God has entrusted us with the greatest privilege in the world!!!!

Movie Review: Moms’ Night Out

Moms!  Take a night out and go see Moms’ Night Out!  In fact, you may want to take your husband and the kids – it is great family entertainment with something for all ages!

We established in a previous post that being a mom is hard!  Sometimes you just need to laugh at your life.  Every mom will be able to identify with exhausted Allyson (Sarah Drew) and her friends.   Their efforts to have just one evening out to try and recharge will totally give to you some much needed belly laughs!!  I have never laughed as hard as I did at this movie – I’m serious.  But in the midst of all the levity, there are inspiring messages to us all which are sure to bring tears as well.  Here is just a sampling:
