Monday Mom Thoughts

His Mercies are New Each Morning!


Last week was one of those harder weeks for us – not sure why, just an off week.

It was full of distraction, interruption, bad attitudes, temper tantrums, sibling quarrels, sleepless baby nights and tween issues. 

Ever been there? 

If I sit and dwell on last week, I’m guaranteed to feel sad (because that temper tantrum took the life out of me),  I will totally feel frustrated (because WHY?…. why such a bad week?), and I most definitely will feel VERY tired (because sleepless nights combined with child – training energy, tuckers you out!!).

Seriously ……. have you ever been there?

So many times in the past, I have taken my bad days or bad weeks, and I have carried them over into a new day or a new week.  ∼insert wrong idea!∼                                        This only compiles the problems that really, we just haven’t dealt with.

Thank goodness God says His mercies are new EACH morning.  

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.   Lamentations 3:22-23

So I have hope, that not only His mercies, but His grace will fall on me each new day. And they will fall on you – I know I’m not the only mama out there that struggles, or has bad weeks. If I am, than I am praying for an abundance of grace!.

Let me encourage you for this new morning, and this new week ……

Every new day starts afresh, whether we feel it or not. That means we automatically get a second chance – A re-do. Let’s embrace each new opportunity we have with His grace, and be thankful for His mercies.

You are doing a great job Mama! And I pray that your week is wonderful.

Happy Monday!
