Hi, busy mom! I thought you could use some encouragement today as you go about your work. Whether you’re a business owner or a ministry leader – or a mom who has been thinking about taking that leap of faith – I hope one or more of these verses speaks to you and offers the hope and encouragement you need today.
- You have a gift to share!
“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”
– 1 Peter 4:10
From photography to number crunching…from listening skills to legal services…from speaking and writing to building and selling…we each have been given a special gift. It’s God’s desire for you to identify those gifts, nurture them and share them. Please don’t hide your gift or put it on the back burner…or dismiss it as not important.
- Now is the time.
“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.”
― Ecclesiastes 11:4
What are you waiting for, my friend? If you’re thinking that things will get easier when your baby starts sleeping through the night…or is finally in Kindergarten…or is off to college…I have news for you – it doesn’t get easier. Only different. You may have more time one day, but that will not necessarily create “perfect conditions” for you to take that next step in your business or ministry. If it’s on your heart to take that next step, then pray for discernment but know that there will never be “perfect” timing. So, now is probably as good a time as any!
