Have you ever wanted time to stop for a while so you could step back, breathe and get organized?

Being a homemaker can be hard, exhausting and even frustrating.

There’s so much to do – every minute of every day! Meals to prepare, bills to pay, rooms to clean, laundry to wash – nevermind trying to find time to pray and study the Word, take a shower or put on some clothes that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to wear outside of the house!

It can be so easy to end up thinking it’s all futile and get overwhelmed.

But by addressing key areas of homemaking life, it’s possible to reduce the overwhelm and calm the chaos.
 

For I satisfy the weary ones and refresh everyone who languishes. (Jeremiah 31:25)

Here are 5 key areas that, if running smoothly, will help almost everything else to run smoothly, too, plus 5 resources to help you conquer each area…
 

1. YOUR FAITH

Isn’t it true that when you take your eyes off the Lord, everything seems more chaotic and frustrating and hopeless?

In order to maintain any kind of joy or peace in homemaking, God has to be your priority or you’ll always be overwhelmed.

You must be a homemaker for Him, first and foremost.

4. YOUR TIME MANAGEMENT

One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a homemaker is lack of discipline. It’s so easy to get into a rut of the “I’ll do it later” mentality.

The Proverbs 31 woman was diligently disciplined (see Proverbs 31:27), which most likely contributed to her prolific productivity and subsequent praise (see Proverbs 31:30-31).

Being a homemaker is a beautiful way to serve God and show His love to others. But life can be hard, and if you’re struggling, please don’t be afraid to invest in the help that you need.

So… which area of overwhelm are you going to tackle first?

>>> LIVING IT OUT >>>

Pray:

That the Lord will help you to delight in homemaking as an expression of loving Him and serving Him. Ask Him to guide you in areas where you need help and to give you patience, strength, peace, and joy.

Study:

These well-known texts about women and their responsibilities and roles as a homemaker, but don’t allow the familiarity to keep you from really digging in and uncovering the gems of truth that God will reveal to you if you seek Him with your whole heart:
Proverbs 31:10-31 //// Titus 2:3-5 //// Jeremiah 29:13

Remember:

There are always solutions to any homemaking issues or problems that you’ll encounter on your journey. All you have to do is find them and (the part that most people miss) put them into action.
