The top 2️⃣ conversations I have with fellow moms is about how busy we feel (picking up kids, throwing dinner on the table while chanting “hurry” then driving them to the next thing) AND how we don’t know what to do about social media/phones/constant texting. Underneath these two conversations are two questions we may not even know we’re asking:
(1) Am I doing this right?
(2) Am I missing it? ~*~
May I speak into this for just a minute? ~*~
Sweet friend, please remember that God is just crazy about you. That He is so happy He made you. That He’s with you when you feel like your parenting is The Worst. That He created you to be dependent on Him because it’s not your job to hold everything together. That His grace redeems it all. That He loves your kids more than you do. ~*~
That you’re a very good mom. ~*~
If you find yourself dismissing these truths, will you talk to your friend Jesus and ask Him how He sees you as a mom? Will you ask Him to sing so loudly that He drowns out your inner critic? Will you boldly approach the throne of grace and sit there for just a minute so you can see His eyes filled with love and joy and a twinkle because of you?
