- I am called
- I am equipped
- I am qualified by Christ alone
- He is with me every second
- He carries me when I cant make it
- His Holy Spirit guides me
- He is in control - not me.
Some moms are dealing with children who are aggressive - they are punched, kicked, spit on, and scratched. Some moms have children who don't communicate or cant even function without assistance to breathe. This is the trenches in a very real way. No mom has it easy - EVERY mom has issues to deal with that they do not feel they can handle or that will break their heart in a million pieces.
Many moms plaster the smile on their faces and quietly suffer. Some moms are complainers and feel all should be aware of their struggles. No matter where you fit in this scenario.... if you are a mom you are important. loved, and you will make it. God has given your a ladder to climb out of the trench. It reaches from Heaven to your deepest pit of despair and hurt
God has this. ALLOW Him to work in your life. Yes, thing are hard. Yes, we don't like it. Yes, you want to scream. (By the way - go outside and scream if you need to --- it makes you feel so much better!)
I can attest to suffering for my kids. Sacrificing my "self" for the betterment of their lives. I am not the only one who has given their all for the sake of their children. MANY mothers do this. Giving of ourselves is done freely because we love. God is the same way. He doesn't have to give to us. He does it because He loves. YOU are His child and He gave the ultimate sacrifice for you.
This crisis is real. Moms are on the edge.... every day we need edification and we need our sisters to rally around us. We need our spouses to rally around us. We need time away from our children who sometimes suck the life out of us.
We need Christ.
I find it interesting that the word crisis and the word Christ are so similar. Just remember --- put Christ at the center of your crisis. Seek Him daily and without fail. Allow Him to guide you and pour into you. No matter how down we are. And when we fail ourselves or feel we fail Him... run to Him and allow Him to heal your heart. He loves you no matter what.
No. Matter. What.
