Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Happy Mother's Day!

There are many things that I am perceived to be good at....
Motherhood is not one of them.
I fail and on a daily basis.
I forget that they are not my children.
I forget that it is not my will that should rule over our children.
I forget so many things.
But this I remember... that I cannot do it alone.
I remember that I am a sinner and fall short of His glory daily.
I am reminded that I am not expected to be perfect, but much is expected of me.

I am corrected, brought to my knees and bent in submission to the will of my Heavenly Father.
Then, I am sent on my way to complete that purpose which He has graciously given to me:
to prepare their hearts for their Heavenly Father
to love them, cherish and treasure them
to show them His love through my love for them
and to be a beacon through which His light shines.

I am reminded that I have far to go in this journey of motherhood and praise the Lord for it!

Oh sweetie! You are much too hard on yourself. You are a GREAT mom. We are all sinners and fall short, but God covers our mistakes with his unlimited love - for you and your children.
