Encouraging words for the homeschool mom
Where do you for for encouraging words as a homeschool mom? We can go to our friends. We can sometimes go to our family. Can I suggest we go first to God’s Word?
Encouraging words from the Bible
The Bible has over 780,000 words so sitting down with Bible in lap to find ones to encourage you might seem daunting! What if I share some of my favorite with you? That will get you going.
- Be still, and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10). I love this one because it means I don’t have to have everything figured out. That’s God’s job.
- For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear. I will help you.” (Isaiah 41:14). If you’re like me, fear can be a bad motive in decision making. This verse reminds me that I can depend on God. So can you.
- Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127: 3-5). This one keeps me grateful when the laundry is piled high and dinner dishes are still in the sink at breakfast. My children are a reward, not a burden. So are yours!
- Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. (Proverbs 31:31). You know when you’re sporting that pony and sweatpants this is the verse you say to yourself. 🙂
My challenge to you this week is to write these verses out. Hang them where you can read them and begin memorizing them! Meditate on them this week when motherhood gets hard.
