Encouragement for a Mother’s Heart… Wisdom

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
    How unsearchable his judgments,
    and his paths beyond tracing out!
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been his counselor?”

Romans 11:33-34


Wisdom! As mothers (and maybe even more so for homeschooling mothers) we are expected to be all wise and know just what do in every situation.  We should know how to heal every hurt whether it be of skinned knee variety or the broken hearted sort.  We should know how to cure every illness. and mend every lost button.  We should know just where our children left that precious toy of theirs and where they might find those missing pants they need… RIGHT NOW!  We should know how to encourage our children to chase their dreams and how to pick them up when fail. We should know just what to do to teach our children to be wise and discerning. The list of places a mother should hold vast wisdom is endless… and maybe exhausting and overwhelming.  No one person can know so much.

 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

But there is one who does that would our all knowing, all seeing, all hearing God in heaven.  This week you and I are bound to be presented with a million challenges.   When you find yourself uncertain trust God.  Pray and ask and He will give you discernment.
