You Can't Live at the Spa - Chapter 4 of Hope for the Weary Mom
So, I am the epitome of the weary momma today. My pitcher is poured out. But it occurs to me that there is only One that was able to make a pitcher of oil last many days (I Kings 17:16). So if I need my poured-out pitcher to be refilled, I need to look to the Lord for my filling. He wants to be my sustenance, and yet, so often I look to other stuff for filling and refreshing. I look to food when I'm not hungry, but feel exhausted. I go to hobbies and interests, or *gasp* facebook, and friends to fulfill my needs when what I really need is to tap into the One Source of comfort and sustenance that really fills! I need time in the word. I need quiet time to talk to God. I need praise and worship. All these things are what TRULY sustains us.
And, so, I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet. Talk to me about finding sustenance in the Lord. Tell me about what you do when you need that extra boost after an exhausting time of being a teenage boy momma. Talk to me.
