Encouragers find many effective ways to build up other people. One of the best encouragements for homeschooling mothers (and for other women who carry many responsibilities) is this statement: “I don’t know how you do it!”
“I don’t know how you do it!” touches the heart of the hearer in multiple ways. It says:
- I notice what you do.
- I am amazed at what you do.
- I admire what you do.
- When I think of you, I think, “Wow!”
So . . . . . here’s my encouragement for you today: I don’t know how you do it!
Philippians 4:13 gives the perfect response to that encouragement. When you know and hold onto the truth of that verse, you can keep on keeping on. Thank you for doing that.
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
