This post is a giveaway for Mother’s Day. Read to the end to find out how to enter!
This Mother’s Day, many mothers dear to me are struggling. Some battle illness. Others suffer grief and loss. Still others are weighed down and overwhelmed with the trials of life. But no matter their specific struggle, they can all find strength in the same Source. They can all take refuge in the same Rock.
God never promised us a life free of pain and trouble. In fact, He clearly told us it would come. But the world and anything it can throw at us is no match for the One and Only.
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33, NIV
God’s Word is full of His promises for times of trouble. Promises of strength and comfort and peace and guidance.
His Word also teaches us that if we build the foundation of our life on Christ, we will stand when the storms come:
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25, NIV
Does your mom need comfort and encouragement this Mother’s Day? Maybe you need comfort and encouragement. God longs to give it. He is able to give it.
God sees. He knows all about your circumstances. And He cares. He invites you to come to Him with all of it.
Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22, NIV
He desires to be your help and strength.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1, NIV
Maybe you don’t know how to start. How to lean on Him. Sit in His presence. Immerse yourself in His Word.
I pray He will strengthen and comfort you today. I’d also like to give you a chance to win one of two resources that can encourage your heart and bolster your faith.
