In 2012 I didn’t do a great job of turning to Jesus for the things I needed as I tried to figure out this whole being a mom thing. I tried to do it all in my own strength and I failed. Miserably.
This year I have the opportunity to allow God to equip me to handle all that comes with being a stay-at-home-mom.
I have the opportunity to become more like Jesus. A little more patient, a little more kind, a little more peace in my heart….
I have the opportunity to choose to sit at the feet of Jesus each day. To put aside the dishes and the laundry and the thousands of things that scream for my attention to just be. with. him. That’s so hard for me to do. I am such a doer.
I have the opportunity to lavish love upon my son every day and teach him just how much Jesus loves him, but I can’t do that unless I surrender to God and let Him take control. I have to allow Him to fill the empty places within me and equip me to be the mother my son needs.
I have the opportunity to look at my life through God’s eyes and see that no matter how I feel or what I think, I am right where He wants me to be and He is not finished with me yet.
“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” ~Philippians 1:6
