Busy moms everywhere, you are so very special! Maybe many have told you how valuable you are, or maybe you feel no one seems to care.  If you are reading this, then from one busy mom to another, you have incredible value and great purpose!

There are several names for the same role, “mom”, “mother”, or “mama”, but the role is the same.  A mother is described as the female who nurtures, loves, supports, and gives to her children. When I think of my mother, I am so very grateful for her unrelenting love, her patience, her friendship, her guidance, her endurance, her grace, her everlasting support, and her wisdom. Because of her, I had the support and love to achieve many things, and the wisdom to do the same for my children. As a mother, your children are looking to you to provide them with these precious values.

At times, the incredible role of a mother can be diminished.  You’ve changed your 1,000th diaper, you’ve burped your baby for the 1500th time, you’ve washed over 700 cycles of clothes, and you’ve driven over 3,000 miles for kids’ sporting events alone, but do know that the things that are done from day to day for your children which may seem drudging, are important.

Because you are so very special, and your role is extremely important, please don’t forget to take some time for you! Self-care is not selfish.  It is simply allowing your pitcher to be filled, so that you can continue to give unrelentingly to others. Take time to pray and meditate, to walk or run, to sleep and relax, or to sit down and enjoy your meal.  Whatever your self-care needs are, take that moment to do it, because you are important and you are necessary to nurture the next generation on Earth!

Never Thirsty

“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” ~John 4:14~

Over the last month, I have written blogs to discuss the importance of water in our lives.  From the physical need of water, to the cleansing and healing properties of it.  In the above Biblical scripture, Jesus talks about giving water in which you will never thirst again.  This is the water that satisfies the spirit.

Have you ever felt stressed with trying to do it all? Have you felt that you were just trying to make it through the day, just to wake up the next day and repeat it all again? Have you ever felt that you were at a place in life in which you were stuck and didn’t know how to get out? Or maybe you’ve had feelings of being alone or depressed? Or maybe life threw some curve balls that you didn’t expect or plan for? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is where this “well of water springing up into everlasting life” comes into play.

You see, this “well of water springing up into everlasting life” represents the Holy Spirit.  So during times of stress, despair, depression, or doubt, you can know that you are not alone, and there is a peace that you can receive which passes all understanding, and yes, it can keep your heart and mind.

In this life, it is not promised that it will be easy or without trials, but it is promised that we will never be alone, or forsaken, and can have peace in any storm.

Water is necessary for replenishing the physical and spiritual components of the human body.  So I encourage you to remember that there is a water that you can drink and never thirst again.  It is the water given by Jesus, which shall be “a well of water springing up into everlasting life”.
