Romans 12:12 is such an encouragement to me especially when it’s been a rough week and “mom-ing” is hard and exhausting.
During those weeks of high stress in motherhood, whether I’ve been dealing with a fussy newborn, a toddler who’s just learned the word ‘no’, strong-willed kids, or the drama of teenagers, I’ve learned to give myself grace as a mom. This verse has been the source of that.
When I look back at my week, exhausted and overwhelmed, I can look to Jesus and know that despite all the imperfections, He did everything perfectly. I can take comfort in knowing that all week, He has been looking at me and seeing his daughter who he really loves. That always makes it easier to turn to Him in prayer, knowing that he deeply cares for me and desires to hear from me and be there with me in my day to day trials.
