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.
