If you were to ask a working mum what her day looks like, she's probably going to say something like, 'I just run from one task to the next '. Her running isn't a physical race to win, but an emotional, mental, physical amount of tasks she's striving to complete.
When do you stop? How do you hit the 'pause' button long enough to breathe?
As a a working mum and wife, it's hard to stop for yourself. I am not just talking about those of us who go to a workplace owned by someone else. All mums and wives are working, whether it's a SAHM (stay-at-home-mum), WFHM )work-from-home-mum), employee, or self-employed.
Ps 46:10 says, ... “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Can I encourage you to take time to stop, breathe, stay still, just for a few minutes?
Allow yourself to hear the calling of wildlife, the rustling of wind in the trees, the stillness of silence.
Allow yourself to take a deep breath and focus on the Lord, who tells us to be still and know He is God.
The tasks, the striving to accomplish and complete will continue. Who will truly care about all that we ran after to complete?
Let's however, look at the larger picture.
What do we want to be remembered for?
