Mothering Through Trials, Heartache and Diversity



God walks with mothers through heartache....

"The Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water,
 whose waters do not fail.
 Isaiah 58:11

The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
Psalm 34:18-1

God walks with mothers through adversity...

And He said to me,
"My grace is sufficient for you,
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9


God comforts mothers as they learn to handle spiritual trials...

Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you,
as though some strange thing happened to you;
but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings,
that when His glory is revealed,
you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 4:12-13



Found these in a little devotional book for mothers this morning--I pray that sharing it with you brings you
 HOPE AND COURAGE
 if you are going through hard times.

This afternoon I received heartbreaking news about my oldest son. I felt as though God reached out to me tonight through your words. Thank you!

Yes, it is very encouraging to me today, especially I Peter 4:12 &13! We lost our beautiful log home and its entire contents except our 6 blessings to a fire caused by propane explosion on March 11th. We are coming through victorious and rejoicing in His abundant provision for us. We have started a blog to chronicle if any would like to check it out.

Yes. We are in year 7 of hard times. For us, the recession has actually been a depression, we've learned from it, been changed by it, and have seen the hand of the Lord in it.

Thank you Jesus.

Thank you very much for this encouragement. We are going through a very difficult time due to a prodigal daughter who ran away three years ago and is not living for Christ. We have 12 others to raise, so I can't give up yet!

Thank you so much for taking the time to compile these verses for those of us who need encouraging. God allows trials and refines us through them, and it is not fun. If we use the opportunity to grow closer to Him, He always redeems the time, and of course catches every teardrop!
