Are You Thirsty?

Note:  My apologies, friends!  This post won’t be live until tomorrow over at The Better Mom! (I got a bit mixed up!)


There are days when I have absolutely nothing to give.  I can’t love my children or my husband.  I can’t clean the house and I certainly can’t get dinner made.

There are days when my heart is sore and my head is pounding.

On those days Jesus wants me to remember his offer in Isaiah:

Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters;
and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

Isaiah 55:1

Please join me at The Better Mom today on Saturday (tomorrow) and be encouraged.   Jesus never needs our “money”, he offers himself for free!

  1. Just yesterday, it was one of THOSE days. I had called my aunt for encouragement and prayer. I didn’t want to be a mother, I didn’t want to be a wife, and I DEFINITELY didn’t want to keep house. I turn on a message and/or worship music each morning and me and the kids listen to it to start our day. (because if I wanted to have my own quiet time then, I’d have to get up at 4 just to be awake before my kids)

    I’m exhausted, my 18 month old still gets up in the middle of the night for no reason, my three year old has an energy that I CAN’T keep up with, and I want a weekend away all to myself in some cabin in the woods. JUST for some peace and quiet. I want what Christ offers so desperately. Somedays, I still doubt that I’ll get it if I ask.

    • Sarah, thanks so much for your transparency. My friend, I hear your weariness in your words and know where you’re coming from…Lord, please bless Sarah with a few minutes of rest today and a refreshed heart.
