As women of today, so much is expected of us. We are expected to excel in both our personal and career lives. Oftentimes, we wonder if we are doing enough or if we are lacking in one aspect or another. Are we caring enough for our family? Are we there enough for our children and/or husband? Are we spending enough time with them? Are we providing enough financially? These thoughts can cause stress and put too much pressure on women. This can lead to frustration, guilt, anger and sadness.
As Christians, we are blessed to always have God on speed dial. In Him, we receive the kind of peace that only He can give. He gives us hope and assurance that our prayers will never go unanswered. He pours out His love on us and works on our behalf.
God is the one who can calm our restless souls. We can find rest in Him, anytime of the day, 7 days a week. Whenever you feel overwhelmed by your duties and responsibilities as a mother, daughter, wife, sister or a friend, just put yourself before God’s presence and lift your thoughts up to the Lord. God is telling all the women of today, “Be still and know I am God!”
Even in our homes, we are constantly faced with challenges that test the limits of our patience, kindness and understanding. Whatever situation you are dealing with, whether in your home or in your workplace, remember to hold on to God’s word. Recite this verse from Psalm 107:28-29 and let your spirit receive the peace of Christ.
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
