When I Run Out Of Compassion For My Children

February 3, 2017

  1. Patricia says:

    Oh how I needed this word Eryn. I’ve been feeling it lately. The lack of compassion, the lack of patience…being weary. But this is a crucial reminder, straight from Jesus. Thank you for sharing!

  2. This is such a great read! I needed this!

  3. Sarah says:

    God must have told you I needed this. As I am sitting here, 29 weeks pregnant with baby #3, exhausted, and been go, go, go, since 6:30 this morning with 2 little boys who aren’t on the same schedule today (no nap for Mama), I want to cry. I just wrote my own post very similar to this about Galatians 6:9 and not growing weary doing good in the trenches of motherhood. It is one thing to help others with this when you’re having a good day, but quite another when you read it from someone else when you’re having a not-so-great day. Thank you! And God bless!

      Thank you, Sarah! I totally get it. My third pregnancy was by far my hardest, mostly due to already chasing around two little boys! God bless you and those little ones!!
