Encouragement for Moms – From Kendra Paulton

Here are a few personal takeaways from my time with Kendra:

  • One way we can be a help to other moms is asking how they are doing, seeing if there is a physical way we can help, and then praying for them right there

  • Our kids mirror and mimic us

  • We are our children’s first example of a Christian

  • The outcome is not our responsibility, but what we pour into our children is

  • There is always enough time in the day to do what God wants us to do that day

  • Matthew 11:28 Do not reject God’s offer for rest

  • Expectations can lead to overwhelm, which can lead to exhaustion

  • Trust in God and do the next thing

  • We expect our children to do things at our pace, and that can lead to impatience

Here is the poem Kendra read:

Untitled, author unknown… source: https://wohbm.org/do-the-next-thing-elisabeth-elliot/

1. From an old English parsonage, down by the sea,
There came in the twilight a message for me;
Its quaint Saxon legend, deeply engraven,
It has, seems to me, God’s teaching from Heaven.
And on through the hours the quiet words ring,
Like a low inspiration: DO THE NEXT THING.

2. Many a questioning, many a fear,
Many a doubt has its quieting here.
Moment by moment, let down from Heaven,
Time, opportunity, guidance are given.
Fear not tomorrows, child of the King,
Trust them with Jesus. DO THE NEXT THING.

3. Do it immediately; do it with prayer;
Do it reliantly, casting all care;
Do it with reverence, tracing Christ’s hand
Who placed it before you with earnest command,
Stayed on His omnipotence, safe ‘neath His wing,
Leave all resultings. DO THE NEXT THING.

4. Looking to Jesus, ever serener,
Working or suffering, let this be your demeanor.
In His dear presence, the rest of His calm,
Let the light of Christ’s countenance be your psalm.
Strong in His faithfulness, praise and sing!
Then, as He commands you, DO THE NEXT THING.
