Romans 15:13 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost “.
You can not pour water from an empty pitcher. You must keep filling it up if you want to continue pouring out.
As a mom we are constantly pouring out. So we must be diligent about filling back up. We must be sure we have something to give. We can not keeping pouring out and not filling our pitcher back up. If you neglect to fill up your pitcher you will eventually run out and have nothing else to give.
We must take time to fill back up. We must take time to be alone with God so He can fill us back up.
I know when I do not have time alone with God I run out of patience, I get to the end of my rope, I feel drained, and I know it is because I am empty. I need God to fill my pitcher everyday. I need Him to fill me with His peace, His joy, His power, His hope, and His grace. I need the Holy Spirit to work through me so I can be the wife, mother, and Christian I need to be.
So take time to take care of yourself. Take time to fill your pitcher. You need a full pitcher before you can give of yourself to others.
