Being a mom is wonderfully amazing. Until it isn’t. And I find myself awake at 3am wondering what I could have done better … or beating myself up for all the ways I fall short … or convincing myself I sometimes just flat out stink at being a mom.
Ever been there?
Deep fear grips the heart of a mother who feels quite inadequate and unsure of what to do next.
I beg God to appear in my bedroom with the fix-it plan and assurance that it really is going to be okay.
After all, He’s the perfect Parent, and has dealt with imperfect children since the beginning of time. I think He offers the best advice around.
But He doesn’t appear. Not in the flesh anyhow. Instead, He leads me to open His Word and put pen to paper. I scribble truth, thoughts, and prayers.
And then I wonder if you ever feel like me.
For those who sigh and say, “yes,” I put together a 5-day devotional with accompanying prayers you can lift up for yourself as a mom. I thought this might be the perfect piece of encouragement for you this Mother’s Day.
