This isn't supposed to be happening! Am I a bad mom?! This won't last forever, it can't hurt right? Wrong? I don't know!
These are all the thoughts running through my head right now.
Oh Jesus, teach me how to bury myself in You more each day. How to nestle in when I feel uncomfortable, insecure or unsure of what is happening. When I feel overwhelmed wrap me in Your unfailing and unconditional love. And let me breathe deeply in the joy that comes from clinging to You as You guide and love me tenderly through my days.
Isn't the picture of motherhood so beautiful as it points to our need for Jesus and His love for us as we love our children. I am thankful to be a mama and would never trade it for anything. These moments, in whatever season of life you find yourself, are far too fleeting. Stop. Enjoy it. Pray. Listen. Smile. Trust. And never take it for granted.
