Emma decided it would be fun to wake at 5.45am and then proceeded to wake her big brother! So today I feel exhausted and I am not long out of bed! I keep staring at the screen then nodding off! I closed my eyes to pray and nodded off! Not good really but once I get going I will be fine!
Who would be a mum? It is the most challenging 'job' I have ever done in my life! We receive no training, no salary, you don't clock off at the end of the day and you can't take a sick day off!
I know that I have a hard day ahead of me if I am already tired and unrefreshed from sleep (or lack of it!). However, I know that I have a wonderful Lord who hears me and knows my circumstances. The Lord hears the prayers of mothers all over the world. He wants to restore us and gives us the strength to face the day ahead. In the darkness of night, when you feel like the only person awake with a child in the world, God is close to you and hears you.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
