Motherhood: The Freedom Of Not Being Enough
DAY 6 OF 6
Just for You
There are lunches to pack, baths to give, beds to make, hair to braid, shoes to lace, juice spills to mop, milk to buy … you know the drill. You barely have time to even think about your task list.
As a mom, self-care seems like a distant dream.
But what if I told you there’s something even better than self-care? It’s God’s care.
I know that sounds trite or maybe simplistic. Perhaps, you’ve heard it from your Sunday School days: God cares for you.
But, take a minute to let it sink in. Let that truth envelop and embrace you.
God sees you. He sees you trudge through those sometimes lonely, often overwhelming trenches of motherhood. In fact, He made a special promise just for you, mom: Isaiah 40:11 says that He gently leads those that have young.
That’s you right there. He’s talking to you, mama!
He takes you by the hand and gently leads you. He knows just how much you’ve been pouring yourself out. And He’s telling you to let him do the leading.
His word is bursting with life-giving promises just for you.
When you’re overwhelmed and have to count to three more times than you can actually count, remember that his divine power has given you everything needed for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).
When you feel isolated as a mom, buried under an avalanche of wet wipes and plastic toys, rest in his promise that he has engraved you on the palms of his hands (Isaiah 49: 16).
When you can’t go on, He promises to renew your strength (Isaiah 40: 31)
When your soul needs tending, He gives you rest in green pastures and beside quiet waters. (Psalm 23: 1-3)
Your Heavenly Father cares for you.
Father God, even when others may not be aware of the daily pressures, You are a God who knows. Even when others overlook or ignore me, You are a God who sees. Thank You for the life-giving promises in Your Word. Thank You for being more than enough for every circumstance that I go through. Amen.
About this Plan
Women, particularly moms, are increasingly being told that we are “enough.” Best-selling books, popular blogs and even sermons constantly repeat the “You are enough” mantra. But does that phrase help grow our dependence ...
