When you look up "weary" it is defined as:
1: exhausted in strength, endurance, vigor, or freshnessI looked up this definition after I was included in group of women that were put together to help launch this book. I began examining this list, praying over it, and meditating on it. Was this really how I saw mothering? Was my pleasure in my children exhausted; had my endurance been exhausted? Had I really gotten to this point?
2: expressing or characteristic of weariness
3: having one's patience, tolerance, or pleasure exhausted —used with of
Can I be honest? I really didn't like the direction I thought this was all going. Doesn't the Bible tell us not to grow weary? Aren't we supposed to run the race well? I began to believe this was going to be a group of women that sat around complaining about their children and husbands, and just commiserate over chocolate. I went ahead and picked up the book and began reading. And I began to see what Brooke and Stacey were wanting to share with all the Moms out there that were tired.
It's not about being weary. This book is about the HOPE.
"Sometimes, I want to run away. But if I turn away from Jesus, where will I go?"That, my friends is the summary of the whole book. When you think you are weary, there can only be one reason. You are running from your HOPE! It is in God, through God, and with God only we have the strength and HOPE for our days! It is in Him I have placed my hopes for my children. Him that carries my husband and I's hopes for our future.
This book is a beautiful place to start in your journey. It is the jumping off point to dive back into the presence of Jesus. At His feet will you learn. I loved being reminded where my HOPE was found.
