During times of stress and uncertainty in our lives and families, we can all use mom affirmations and Bible scriptures to help us think positively. Check out this encouraging list.
This weekend I was zoned out.
After a week of major schedule changes, shortening our trip to California by a day then having our flight cancelled, starting a new routine with the kids, my oldest beginning online education, and my husband’s grandmother nearing the end of life (not related to Covid 19), I was wiped.
Though the week went well overall, when the weekend arrived I finally let down and felt the gravity of all that emotional output.
And after reading probably too many news reports and updates about the current situation, a lot of fears and worries crowded out the few rational thoughts I had left in my head.
In times like these, I strive to cling to God’s Word and the truths within it. I desire to live in His peace constantly, though I frequently don’t meet that goal. If you’re like me in that, to get back to peace we not only need to read His words, but receive them daily, repeatedly, as our minds get off-course.
It’s easy to get stuck in false ideas, such as thinking we need to worry about the future and health of those we love. But it says in Luke 12:25, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?”
So true. Worry does nothing for us, yet it’s hard to step away from it.
Here are are combination of 20 verses and mom affirmations to help us all refocus on truth, and claim it for ourselves. We can be confident in His promises and walk in peace, as He replaces our fears with His Words of Life.
