You are a modern MAMA! Modern life expects a lot of moms soothing our busy schedules by offering a stream of conveniences. Do they really make our lives easier? The reality is that each of us wage a different war with lots of parallels. It’s easy to feel like we’re never doing enough. It’s simple to see we’re all doing too much.
The modern MAMA needs rest, but an extra nap or morning without the alarm clock isn’t the answer. Those are temporary and will be needed again tomorrow. True rest is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Matthew 11:28-30, “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Join us today as we talk about how modern mamas wrestle with the definition of rest. Is it negotiable? Maybe if I work harder today, then tomorrow I can get a break. Some of us may believe rest is earned by checking off our list of daily mom-tasks and some have given up altogether and think rest is unattainable. We believe rest is a walking out of trust every single day. What we need more than anything is to know and be known by a Savior who offers lasting rest for our souls.
