5 Bible Verses For Discouraged Moms

1. When I am discouraged about one of my kids, and wondering if there is hope for that child,  I remember this verse.

If God can change the heart of a king, He can change the heart of that child I am concerned about!

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water:  he turneth it whithersover he will. 

Proverbs 21:1

2. When I have been faithful to teach and train my kids in God’s Word, but I feel like it’s not helping, I claim this promise.

God’s Word WILL NOT return unto Him void, but WILL accomplish what He wants it to.

 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Isaiah 55:11

3. When I am feeling overwhelmed with all that the day holds, and I don’t know where to start, I commit my day and the activities of it to the Lord.

He WILL establish my thoughts and plans when I give them to Him.

Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.

Proverbs 16:3

4. When I am exhausted and thinking that it’s too much for me to keep on, I remember that I will see results, and the harvest will come.

I have to focus on planting the seeds daily, knowing I will reap  if I remain faithful.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9

5. When I am facing a situation with the kids that leave me feeling helpless, I can call on God.

 He will answer me, and show me great things, which I can’t even imagine.

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3
