Daily Reflection #6

 The Struggle is Real

The struggle of a mom’s heart is real: She worries that she can’t protect her children enough. She thinks she is blowing it big time. She sometimes doesn’t have the solution to the problem. She gets tired, frustrated, and can feel guilty for feeling either.

But her heart is full of love for her babies, so this causes her to press on:)

Does this describe you? It describes me on many occasions. The other day this prayer was on my heart:

Lord, I don’t want to get twisted up in everything I think I’m doing wrong. It’s easy for me to come up with a 1000 things I need to fix. However, I want to be at the point where I’m reckless, abandoned, and sold out for You because at that point I’ll be able to let You do the transforming work in my life ~ It is in the everyday things of life that we get the see the mighty power of Jesus on display.

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (1Cor.15: 57-58)

Lord, help me be the kind of mom I want to be:)

  1. Denise! yay. So good to see you friend. 🙂 — oh, can I ever relate to the feelings of guilt. Why do we pressure ourselves to be for our children what only God can be — everything. Satan often twists my thinking with everything I think I'm doing wrong as well. So thankful God can fill any any gaps I leave, and that surrendering to Him gives me a front row seat to His power on display. — Lovely words of hope, my friend. — Thanks so much for sharing with #ChasingCommunity today!

  2. I love this. Instead of focusing on all that we are NOT as parents, we turn our attention to the ONE that is all, knows all, sees all and controls all. He's the one that makes ALL grace abound toward us so that we can successfully parent. This mommy of 6 is encouraged! TY new friend.
