I need a little extra encouragement

I know motherhood is supposed to make me feel fulfilled and happy.  And there seem to be a lot of mommies out in blogland that are so in love with their kids.  And their lives.  And their husbands.  And everything.  I'm just not feeling it today.  So, I need a little extra encouragement.  Here are some Bible verses for me and everyone else who might need them today.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."--Matthew 11:28(NIV)

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you"--1 Peter 5:7

"[Love] is not self-seeking."--1 Corinthians 13:5

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."--2 Corinthians 12:9

"Marth, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed.  Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.""--Luke 10:41-42

"That's why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large.  Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you'll get God's everything."--Mark 11:24(MSG)

"Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should alway pray and not give up."--Luke 18:1

""The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.'"--Numbers 6:26

"If you are guided by the Spirit, you won't obey your selfish desires."--Galatians 5:16(CEV)

"Love never fails."--1 Corinthians 13:8

"I can do everything through him who gives me strength."--Philippians 4:13

Thank you for letting me post.  I needed to actually sit down and read and write these.  I needed to re-center.
