While They Are Young

To kindred spirits, traveling down similar roads,

Did you know, while you are in the midst of sleep deprivation, attending to the middle-of-the-night cries of a newborn, the restlessness of a toddler, the chaos of littles and their high-energy, non-stop talking, octane-filled, full-forced driven lives of discovery, God is gently leading you?

When you have "Mom-Brain", living life as if in a fog, moving from one "must-do" to the next of daily routine:
House maintaining, toy re-arranging, baby wrangling motherhood;
God is holding you, and yours, close to His heart.
We have only to look to Scripture for this Truth and comfort:
He tends his flock like a Shepherd:

    He gathers the lambs in His arms
and carries them close to His heart;

    He gently leads those that have young.
Isaiah 40:11
You have been gathered up into His arms. He is strong enough to lift your burdens.
He is your shepherd and He knows you well.
He will care for you as you care for yours; gently leading, lifting you higher.
Trust that He is giving you everything you need so you are able to lead your own
just as gently as He is leading you.
Encouragement for the journey;
giving my all to raise you up!

“Perfect”. Beautiful encouragement for the mommy’s with only limited time and sometimes only limited energy.
