When your nights are filled with a slow dance with a baby who just won’t sleep…Press on.
When your day is disjointed and unproductive because you can’t move past the fog from your sleepless night…Keep moving forward, one step at a time.
When your work schedule includes meetings and travel and you’re gone all day and night and you just want to hold your child’s face in your hands because you miss it so much…Know that tomorrow may be easier, and tomorrow will come.
When the bills extend past the paycheck and you struggle to understand why you trudge through this chaotic life just to come up short…Trust that there will be a sunrise after this long night.
When your little girl throws a fit the size of Texas every time you speak to her…Know that she loves you and needs you beyond what her tiny words can express.
When you have consumed toxic amounts of caffeine and your eyes still fail to stay open during the endless work meetings…Take a deep breathe, for the night will come soon.
When you can’t wrap your brain around the insurmountable tasks ahead of you because you are so wrapped up in your guilt and worry about whether your baby is getting fed enough, loved enough, or spoken to enough…Close your eyes and be still. Jesus knows his needs better than you and He’s got your back.
When your brain is spent and your energy is zapped but someone must put food on the table, clean the endless amounts of laundry, break up fights, and wash up sweaty little bodies…Take it one step at a time.
When you lose track of the permissions slips and forget important events on the calendar…Let it go, there are more important things to this life.
When you lose your patience, your mind, and your sanity…Rest and know that His mercies will be new in the morning.
There will be evening and there will be morning. There will be sunrises and sunsets. There will be dark days and storms. There will be beauty and rainbows. There will be laughter and days filled with tears.
You WILL make it through. You CAN take that next step. JOY will come in the morning. PEACE will surpass your understanding. LOVE makes everything beautiful.
You can do all things. Press on dear sister. HE is with YOU.
