Sometimes it is very difficult to go through life when things are not going well, and daily devotions are the last thing a busy mom wants to read. By way of instance, the children may all be throwing tantrums, the car won't start, the washer acts up, and all the numerous things that mothers face on a day-to-day basis. When all these things weigh a mom down, what is she to do?
The good thing is that despite all these pressures, a Christian mother has one thing that stays unchanging: she can behold Jesus, her relentless Lover. Oftentimes, however, mothers find themselves too busy and think that seeing more of Him is limited to individuals who can spend hours everyday meditating on His love! But do you know that He wants to encounter everybody, and He can do so even in a very limited quantity of time?
Daily devotions are designed not for people that have all the time in the world. Instead, the notion of having brief, easy-to-read snippets that still contain important truths came in the revelation that God desires to encounter even busy working professionals, busy mothers, and just about anybody swamped with tasks every day. These people, most importantly, would need the constant reminder of His love. And the small daily portions are simply a launching pad for getting used to receiving His love always.
1. It reminds moms that they're not alone in this world. Daily devotions that speak about Jesus and His love remind them he initiated everything when He died on the cross for our forgiveness and to be near us. It's that exact same lovesickness that causes Him to fulfill every mother exactly where she is and show her His heart.
2. It helps moms realize how special they are, giving them the power to go on although everything else appears to be going wrong. They say that a person in love is a person fully alive; in the event of moms, they have to understand how loved they are to be able to give of themselves more fully for their children.
3. It gives them valuable time alone and makes them realize they are loved for who they are, not for what they do. Moms sometimes visit super-mom mode in the thought that they're only valued for what they do. As soon as they sit down and sit still, they may fret, thinking they aren't being productive. But when they develop the habit of sitting down every day for a fixed period of time, they slowly change that mindset, realizing that they are loved no matter what they do.
Overall, daily devotions are meant for people to enjoy the journey of knowing the depths, the widths, the peaks, the spans of His love, then you can face whatever the world throws at you.
