Philippians 4:19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. NIV
I bet when you saw the title, you thought this would be a blog post about finances. Not today. This is about you. How, as a working woman, wife, mother, daughter to aging parents, or even a single mom struggling with day to day demands “make ends meet” in your personal/emotional/what about me time bank?
It’s tough, isn’t it? You think you have it all figured out. You set up your little schedules. On paper, it works. In reality, it never balances out, leaving you exhausted and empty. At the end of the day, almost every...single...day, you fall into bed, leaving something undone. The next day, you try again.
The fact is this: It’s ok. You are hanging by a sliver of the last thread on the end of your rope, but you are hanging still. Your kid will be ok if they play ball in dirty underwear because you forgot to throw the whites in the dryer before you fell asleep. Sandwiches or cereal for supper never killed anyone. And, most importantly, you’re going to miss this season of your life sooner than you expect. Give yourself some grace.
God, today I ask a special prayer for every overwhelmed woman reading this blog. I pray that You hold them in Your hand and remind them that You do, indeed, supply their every need. No matter what season they are in, You are there, making the way. Help them to see that it’s ok, that they are doing a great job, that they are worthy of this job You have given them. Every person needs to know someone is proud of them. I ask today that you put someone in their paths to encourage, uplift, and help them “make ends meet”.
