What if I told you I have doubted my own ability to be the best Mom for my girls? Does this make me less of a good Mom? A little over ten years ago I welcomed Motherhood yet I had not one clue what I was doing. Somehow, we made it and now, fast forward ten plus years and here we are with three beautiful daughters whom I adore and love beyond belief. Even though I have been doing this mothering gig for a while now, I still have days when I doubt myself.
I can imagine a lot of Moms feel this way. We try so hard to be patient, loving, kind and selfless mothers. Then the hard times come. Wow, who would of thought parenting could be so hard? We fall, we stumble, we make A LOT OF mistakes and it leaves us wondering, "Am I really cut out for all of this?" You are not alone in this thinking.
There is GOOD news though! My friend, you are enough! I am saying it again because you REALLY need to hear it...YOU ARE ENOUGH! God chose YOU to be the Mother of your children for a reason. No mistakes going on there....I truly believe Motherhood is a divine calling and God knows exactly what HE is doing.
When you are waiting in the long, tedious duty of car line, or helping with Math homework that makes you want to bang your head against the wall...You are enough! When your sweet little ones talk sassy and make you want to hide in the closet until Dad gets home...you are enough!
We are blessed each new day that we awake. The mistakes that you made yesterday are gone. No one is keeping tabs and judging you. Move on and make today the best day it can be.
Don't worry so much when you stumble and fall. God has you. He sees you struggle and hears your call for help. He doesn't want you to be a perfect Mom; he wants you to be the Mom he designed you to be! Yes, we are going to get discouraged when hard days come. When this happens, let Him lead the way, so you can follow. If you let Him, He will equip you with everything you need. Remember my friend, in His eyes you are always ENOUGH!
"Entrust your works to the Lord, and your plans will succeed."
~ Proverbs 16:3
