On Our Hearts: Feeling Overwhelmed

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the many blessings that come with being a mom. It is only as a mother that we can even begin to understand the amount of love you have for us. However, motherhood can be so overwhelming at times. As our children grow, so do our responsibilities, our obligations, our commitments, and unfortunately our frustrations. God we ask for your wisdom and peace for all of us who are struggling with feeling overwhelmed right now.

Lord, we ask that you take away our worries. We rejoice in knowing that we can lay all of our cares at your feet and you will comfort us. You have told us that we do not need to worry about tomorrow, you have supplied us with all of our needs. Lord be our provision, renew our weary spirits, and let your grace cover us as we go throughout our day.


“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? 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? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?" Matthew 6:25-27
