When you are a mom, you do not have a ton of time to get into deep Bible studies or lengthy prayer times. So, what is a mom to do? Quit reading the Bible? No! Quit praying to God because that takes too much time? No! We just need to change our expectations and adjust them to our new hectic life style.
In Isaiah 40:11 it says, “He gently leads those that have young.” Isn't that such a comforting thought that our Lord understands where we are with young children? He understands that our days are consumed with taking care of our children the busyness of a toddler’s life makes the mom’s life full as well. God “gently” leads those that have young. I love that verse!
I encouraged you to change your expectations of your walk with the Lord by focusing on one verse per week. During the week, really allow the verse to soak into your soul. Write it out and place the verse somewhere in your home where you will see it a lot and read it a lot. Allow the Holy Spirit to teach you the meaning of that verse and how it applies to your life. Secondly, instead of having a long prayer life in a quiet place, have conversations with God throughout your day. Invite Christ into every aspect of your life and talk to him about your day, all during the day. Tell God when you are discouraged, aggravated, frustrated, deflated because you don’t know how to parent your child. God is interested in all of those details and He wants to carry those burdens for you. The last part of changing your expectations is quit trying to be a super mom and start “resting” in the Lord.
Please keep in mind, this crazy time in your life is just a season! It will not last forever and one day you will have all kinds of time to study the Bible in depth. God is interested in a RELATIONSHIP with you. You can do that in whatever season you find yourself.
