Motherhood is stressful for sure. Kids screaming, phone ringing, dryer dinging, and timer beeping… Life gets busy and hectic as a mom. We have so much to do and seems like so little time to do it all in. With working, homeschooling, caring for the kids, home, and hubby, I get way too stressed sometimes.

I want to share these 10 scriptures for the stressful mommy moments in your life with you. They lift me up when I am down, weak, and when I just feel like throwing in the towel to it all.

10 Scriptures for the Stressful Mommy Moments
1. Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Remember, if you rely on God during the most difficult mommy moments, he will be with you along the way. Look to him for strength and courage.
2. Proverbs 17:27 He that hath knowledge spareth the words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
This scripture encourages me to try my best to be even-tempered when talking with my children. A wise mother uses a few words and has a even-tempered spirit to understand her children and others.
3. Romans 8:37-39 Nay, in these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
YOU are an overcomer. You can overcome these moments as a mother. Remember, there is always someone who has it worse than you. YOU are BLESSED! Jesus loves you and your family. Show his love to them and to everyone around you.
4. Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
When motherhood starts to get the best of me, I ask God to search my heart and thoughts. I pray to ask God to forgive me for thinking wickedly, and to lead me and guide me to be a better mother and wife.
5. Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
God will supply every need you have if you ask him and give thanks to him. That doesn’t mean he will tell you yes to all your prayers either. Sometimes God tells me no. I may not understand it now, but later I realize he really was meeting all my needs.
6. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Praise God in the most difficult times as a mother. This is probably the most difficult to do. When life gets tough, we tend to think about the negative and forget to praise God for things like our children’s health, happiness, laughter, and the love God has given to us. So next time when the kids are screaming at each, thank God for blessing you with children.
7. 2 Corinthians 10: 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
This one really helps me when I am struggling with thoughts that I should not have in my head. I want my thoughts to be centered on Christ, not on wicked or evil things. When I begin to worry about my children or my husband, or think about something in a negative way, I think about this scripture. Let God cast out all those imaginations and anxiety you have, and yield to him to help you focus on spiritual matters.
8. Proverbs 31: 25 – 28 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
This speaks of the characteristics of a virtuous woman. This is our goal as mothers. We should strive to be a virtuous woman for our children, for our husbands, and most of all for Jesus Christ. This scripture reminds me of my goal as a wife and mother. It helps me to remember to be kind and patient to my children and loving and supportive to my husband.
9. James 3:16 For where ending and strife in, there is confusion and every evil work.
This encourages me to not be jealous of other moms or wives and not want what they have necessarily, but be content with my life. God has blessed each and every one of us in our own special way.
10. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
I quote this scripture multiple times a day. As moms we have so many things to do and our bodies and minds become weak. We are given strength though Jesus Christ. My sister and I were talking the other day about how I am able to accomplish so much in one given day. My answer is simple, “My savior, Jesus Christ, gives me strength each and every day.”
