As moms, we are pretty hard on ourselves, aren’t we? We beat ourselves up for not being better mom’s, not spending more time with our kids, not looking a certain way, and not measuring up to what the world around us tells us we need to be. We compare ourselves to others and base our worth by some standard set by Pinterest, parenting magazines, media, the list goes on… I will admit it: I have found myself in this place all too often. Before we know it, the lies become more real, and the truth about who we really are begins to fade. Yet we don’t have to believe those lies anymore, because let me tell you, Sweet Mama, you are okay. You are MORE than okay. In Christ, you are enough, and that is all that you need.
I came across this devotion by Renee Swoope today that was featured on InCourage, and I couldn’t help but share it with you. I know that there are other mama’s out there that struggle with feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. Let this moment be a fresh start for you where you begin to rest in the truth of all that Jesus says about you. He whispers, “Precious mama, find your rest in Me.” Click on this link to read the great devotion by Renee Swoope of the Proverbs 31 Ministries. Love to you all! 🙂
