A Weary Job


Hang in there, moms; don’t grow weary in doing your work. It’s a hard job, but you will reap the benefits one day!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

This verse takes on a whole new meaning when you become a mom. My daughter, Kelsey, just had a baby and I forgot how “weary” a mom can be.  As I help Kelsey throughout the day, I love all the work that needs to be done, but at night, I am weary; I am tired.  But since I’m the grandmother, I get to sleep through the night. Not so for Kelsey. She is still doing night feedings and probably will for a few more months. 

The life of a mom is tiring. Even after the children grow older and are not in that newborn stage of life anymore, the list of chores and “to dos” in a mom’s world is never ending. This verse brings hope into my world as a mom. There is a promise attached to this verse. If I don’t grow weary in doing good as a mom—teaching my children right from wrong, teaching my children manners, teaching my children how to love one another, teaching my children the right way to walk, talk, treat others, etc. while doing housework, cooking, errand running, and working—if I don’t grow weary in doing those things and I don’t give up, then I WILL reap a harvest one day.

One day, at the proper time, my harvest will be full. Ladies, I’m on the other side now and I can tell you when this harvest comes into full bloom—it's when you have those grandbabies! That is when you reap the harvest of all your hard work, and you get to bask in the glory of being a mom. You get to love on your grandchild AND get a full night of rest! It doesn’t get much better than that. It is also great when your children are adults, and you look at them and you are so proud of what they’ve become. When you think to yourself, that’s my child! Sure, there are highlights before grandchildren, but that is the true time of full harvest. 

Hang in there moms; don’t grow weary in doing your work.  It’s a hard job, but you will reap the benefits one day!


Father, Thank you for giving me the job of being a mom. It is a hard job, and one that I do grow weary in doing day after day, but I am grateful and I love my job! God give me your strength and your endurance, help me to see everyday as the bliessing that it is.
