Sometimes being a Mom can be super overwhelming.
There. I said it.
Of course, if you are a Mom, you are likely nodding your head in agreement with me.
There are too many things to do, so many needs to be met, and a dwindling supply of energy and inner peace.
Thankfully, God knows us better than we know ourselves.
God knows that we can get overwhelmed for so many different reasons:
- Too many after school activities
- Too many runny noses
- That person who keeps microwaving fish for lunch at work
These 10 scriptures won’t cook dinner for you, but they will definitely help you keep your perspective straight, your mind set on things eternal. Because seriously, regardless of the chaos swirling in your life right now, it is so comforting to know that God is in control. God has got this and God will take care of you. Being reminded of the eternal perspective really helps me focus on the fact that this world is not my home.

I Peter 5:7
casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you. (WEB)

I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (NIV)
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (NIV)
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. (NLT)

23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting. (NIV)
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? (NLT)
