Motherhood Unfiltered

Some days I feel confident in the type of mother that I am. Then there are other days I go to bed focused on all the ways that I missed the moment. Sometimes that mom guilt can seem to speak so loudly in my mind of all the things I should have done or should have said. Lies that I am not good enough. This is false thinking.

Instead, I make a choice to renew my mind and remind myself to see motherhood through God’s point of view. I choose to remember that His grace is sufficient for me and His power is shown through my weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).

The hard moments don’t go away. There may still be temper tantrums, bad grades, sleepless nights, hormonal attitudes, and other challenges along the way. The house may be a mess and you can’t remember the last time you combed your hair.

But His grace is with me right now in the midst of it all.

Even if I cannot change the situation, I can choose to rest in Him right in the middle of it.

So momma, don’t give up no matter how things seem.  Lean in to His grace.

  1. I’m loving this positive affirmation. I have 2 toddlers and am 6 months pregnant and sometimes I feel like I’m drowning. Mommin’ ain’t easy! But I’m doing the best I can.
