Yet, where do moms tend to go for rejuvenation? They bee line to Starbucks!, or perhaps the bathtub or a movie. There is nothing wrong with these pleasures as enjoyments, but they hold little to no value in rejuvenation.
I am sure you all know where I am headed, yet, take a second and try to listen anew. Read what God has to say and try to hear what He is speaking directly to you.
Paul gives us a different perspective on weakness in II Corinthians 12, he says, “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” This is in response to the Lord saying to him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.”
Our weakness is where God’s power is made perfect, IF we run to Him. He wants to rest His power on us, all we need to do is declare our weakness to Him and receive His power.
Ever get lost in worship? Standing shoulder to shoulder with other believers, singing of your love to your Savior, you suddenly feel washed anew, unaware of anyone around you, each word is filled with sincere love and declaration. There is peace, peace that goes beyond understanding, beyond any circumstance in your life.
This worship experience is a taste of what God’s “power made perfect in weakness” feels like.
As moms, we are weary, weak from our day to day duties, we need God’s power. How do we find this power? First we acknowledge our weakness, admit we cannot do it on our own. In that same moment, cry out to Jesus to fill us with strength and wisdom. While instantly turning our hearts to worship Him who gives us everything we need, when we need it.
Can you imagine what a day filled with worship would look like. Seriously, what if the next time you feel like giving up on training you turn to your children and say, “Let’s worship,” and you turn on music and sing, sing, sing until His presence renews your strength.
“Therefore, I urge you, (Mommies), in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, which is your spiritual worship.” Romans 12: 1
“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4: 23-24
