“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).

Does your burden seem heavy today? Too many loads of laundry, too many ungraded papers, half-finished art projects, or birthday cards left unwritten? Sometimes we are overwhelmed with all that has to be done as a homeschooling parent.

God sees and knows your burdens. He cares and will provide the strength you need to face each day’s tasks. Matthew 11:28 tells us, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Just when you think you can’t do another thing, trust God to send help in the most unexpected way. Homeschooling forces us parents into knowing that it is not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit that we are able to love and teach the children He has given us. Take heart and know that He will never leave you nor forsake you. After all, these are His children, and He will keep His promise to lift every burden you have.

Lord, I feel so tired. Please, fill me with Your strength to make it through today. Thank You for Your promises and not giving me more than what I can bear. Please, send the help I need to face all the tasks before me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
