Hang in there, Mom!

Have you had a day filled with driving carpools and assigning time-outs? Of homeschooling, overseeing homework, and making sure chores get done? If so, reminding you that children are a blessing from God probably isn’t what you need to hear right now! Or – is it?

Psalm 127:3 says, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord.” That “behold” is a huge exclamation mark! Children are a blessing, and motherhood is a privilege. Setting aside the reality of a bad day, how do you feel about your children? Do you cherish them? I’m guessing you do. Sometimes you just need a little reminder.

Your children are created in God’s image. And you have the privilege of teaching them, training them, loving them, and prizing them! I want to encourage you on the good days and the bad-that as a mom after God’s own heart, a mom who loves and cares for your children, you are right in the center of God’s perfect will.

Into my hands and heart You, my all-wise Father, have deposited Your gift of my precious children. When I wonder how on earth I can manage, remind me to look to You for perspective, patience, and a growing capacity to love and cherish my children—even more! Amen.
