He is For You



And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28


Some moments of motherhood are more difficult than others. Some days are difficult physically. Some days are difficult emotionally. Some days are difficult both physically and emotionally. Some seasons of motherhood require every last ounce of strength running through our bodies.

When we are outgunned, outnumbered, and overwhelmed by our children’s needs, inquiries, and behaviors, the odds feel stacked against us. But we serve a God who is for us. He can be our strength when we have nothing left to give. 

In the same way that Jesus multiplied the fish and loaves the boy had to offer at the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus can give us his divine ability to overcome the daily struggle and conquer our anxious thoughts. When we come to Jesus with what little we have, no matter how small our heart-offering, Jesus can multiply our portions.

Romans 8:28 gives us a promise. Jesus is working all things together for our good. Jesus is for us. This gives us hope. This gives our lives light, significance, joy, and holy purpose. Even when the going gets rough, God’s presence never leaves or forsakes us. 

Even though some days are difficult, we still have prayer. We still have a daily and eternal connection to the Lord. Jesus paid it all so that we could have blessed assurance and experience life to the fullest.

As Christ followers, we are daily connected with God through the Holy Spirit. This is a profound gift we should cherish. Let’s reach out to Jesus, and ask him to be our steady strength through the highs and lows.

God is working on our behalf. He is orchestrating our lives behind the scenes. Even when we cannot see it, God’s plans are good. He works in our favor. His ways are perfect, even when the struggle is real.

God has positioned you in your home, with your spouse, as the mother of your children for a reason. Lean into this truth through moments of struggle. When God’s purposes seem to be surrounded by a sea of fog, push past the dim and recognize the light. Ask God to guide you through dark days, and enable you to mother from the strength of his might.

We serve a God so big, whose greatness stretches beyond our understanding. And still, he cares about the little details of our lives. He so dearly cares. He stepped down from Heaven to fulfill our desperate need, to answer the longing of our souls. We are incredibly, intimately, infinitely loved. Let’s live life reflecting this truth.


Dear Jesus, 

Step in and stop the rising tide. Be my steady strength in moments when I feel like I have nothing left to give. Be the autopilot of my life. May I come to depend on you always. Help me to look to you and not to myself, for everything. In Jesus’ almighty name, amen.


Steps of Faith:

  • Give the Lord some of your time today. Ask Him to multiply your heart-offering and fill you to the brim with the peace and joy of his holy presence.

  • God wants to use you in miraculous ways, mama! Say yes. Step forward in faith. Move toward the light in your life. Choose to fight for the Lord’s plans to unfold in your home. Refuse to shrink back in fear. With the Spirit of the Living God inside of you, there is nothing you cannot accomplish. No mountain is too big, no task he asks is too small. In every little thing, say “yes” to living for Jesus in the best way that you know how.

Romans 8:28 is a favorite of mine and always encouraging to remember when I don't understand what is going on and I cannot see God's plan. For me it relates to Jeremiah 29:11 remembering that God knows the plans that He has for me, plans for GOOD and not evil, to give me hope and future. If i can remember these two promises from God, it helps me to not get discourage and bogged down but rather hopeful that good is coming from whatever I am facing!


Thank you for sharing!

Yes, amen! Love your encouraging reminder of Jeremiah 29:11 as it relates to Romans 8:28. These two promises give us such reassurance that God is for us and we are loved. Even when we face hard things, God has a greater plan that is for our good and his glory! Thank you <3 -Alex

Sweet encouragement, Alexandra! I remember coming across a passage in Isaiah that spoke strength into my weak and weary spirit when our three children were young, Isaiah 40:29--"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." The number of grandmothers and great-grandmothers prove: we all somehow survive the raising of our children! But in the weakness and weariness, those of us who rely on God learn to depend upon him in new ways. That learning is priceless.
