Dear Mama Friends,
I want to encourage you this mother’s day. I’m sure you’re aware by now, there is no mom report card. But do you live that way? Do you feel like you’re constantly showing up as sub-par or failing, even? May I speak bluntly to you, sweet friend?
Stop grading yourself. Seriously.
How many times have you looked at another mom and thought, “Boy, I bet she has it all together. I wonder how she does it?” only to find out later that she, too, feels like she’s falling short – by the tears streaming from her eyes as she confides in you.
When you feel exhausted; ill-equipped; alone; heartbroken; lonely…please remember these truths I’m about to share with you.
Psalm 139 reminds us that The Lord knew all of our days before there was even one. He knew our struggles in advance and meets us where we are, without fail. He knew these things when he CHOSE you to be the mother of your children and he knows the struggles of your children as well. He has equipped you to do exactly what you need to do. And, sweet friend, you need to do it with a Godly confidence (Godfidence) and with joy in your heart! I know you’re wondering how it will all get done, how you’ll make it, but listen…
