Routine Mom

“As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.”

Genesis 8:22 NLT

As I read my devotional this morning, it got me thinking about how exhausting it’s been lately. Always the same routine as a mom. Sometimes I feel like not showing up, at times even wanting to give up.

But then in the devotional, I was reminded of how God shows up daily. What would it look like if He DIDN’T show up with the exact same routine. More than just day and night alone wouldn’t exist.

To be reminded of his faithfulness, it encourages me to keep showing up for my kids, even when it’s tough. I cannot make day/night happen, but I can be there for conversations, hugs, kisses, laughter, tears, and everything else in between that my growing family needs from me. More importantly, I pray that they see the love God has for them and how He shows up daily for them too through my actions.
