The Isolating Job of Being a Mom
I lie awake; I have become like a bird alone on a roof.
As a mom, do you ever feel alone? Do you feel like you are trapped in your world of work, laundry, cooking, cleaning, breaking up fights between siblings, taxi cab driver, etc.? Most of the time, you are alone in this all-encompassing job of being a mom. Sure, there are other moms out there, doing exactly what you are doing, but each mom is on her own path, trying to figure it all out. Being a mom can be a very isolating and lonely job. It is an important job— one could argue, the MOST important job— but to be sure, it is isolating.
God is with you in your isolation and He is your support and strength. He sees all the hard work you are doing. He sees the love you have toward your children when no one else is paying attention or noticing. God notices. God cares. Cry out to Him throughout your day. Ask Him to fill you with His love and mercy toward your children. Ask God to give you creative ways to help your four walls not to become your prison, but to view your four walls as a wonderful, creative, work space where you go to work everyday molding and shaping the next generation. Just because you are alone, doesn't mean your work is not important. Ask God to meet you in those lonely days and to fill your life with His joy.
Father, Thank You for this day, thank You for Your love and grace that you freely give everyday. God, I embrace today and all that it brings. Lord, I know that you “get me” and my circumstances…and I am so grateful that I am not alone. You know exactly where I am today…all my feelings, fears, and weaknesses. Give me what I need to do this very important job, raising these children. Fill the long day ahead with Your joy, Your zeal for life and Your love.
