What does God mean by "work with your hands"

Hi Mums,

I am a mother of two beautiful boys and was planning to be a stay at home Mum. However, God gave me a very clear word (1 Thess 4:11-12) to "work with my hands" after my first son (Samuel) was born. I was offered a half day job, which I have continued with my second child (Jonathan is almost two now).

Things are getting increasingly difficult though. I have "the perfect balance": my Hubbie seems really happy, and my boys are doing SO well - very well adjusted and confident, Jonno has been speaking since 18 months old - tick, tick, tick. But I am beyond exhausted, used up, finished.

Is it possible that I have heard God wrong? Does he want us to "use ourselves up" in this way? I am not sure how much longer I can do this...

Your thoughts and experiences would be SO appreciated

With love,
Half day Mum
