His Strength ....


One of my dear friends wrote this poem and I thought it was so good I wanted to share as an encouragement to the women in my life ... 




To the Mom who would give anything for just ONE night of sleep
To the Mom who has volunteered for more than four activities in one week
The new Mom of two who feels defeated
The Mom of a teenager...and also a toddler
To you, the Mom taking care of your parents and your family and your neighbor and...

HE WILL GIVE YOU STRENGTH

To the woman that can't look at her own reflection in the mirror
The woman that feels guilt taking time for herself
The woman whose marriage is crumbling
To you, the woman that keeps a smile on her face through despair

HE WILL GIVE YOU STRENGTH

In the moments that you have never felt more alone
The moments you feel like a failure as a mom, a spouse, a friend
Moments of regret and shame

HE WILL GIVE YOU STRENGTH

For the days that you know you did your best
The days that you took time for yourself
Days when you slept through the night for the first time in...months
Days when your toddler actually let her daddy put her to sleep
The days that you thank God for the patience you didn't know you had
For the days that you smiled and gave thanks for chaos
Days that are renewed and that give you new breath

HE GAVE YOU STRENGTH

When have you felt the Lord's strength and provision in your life recently?
