Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a Mama. God has gifted me with 5 babies earthside, and a few I will meet in heaven.
By society’s standards, we are considered a “large family.” By my standards large is always 2 more kids than what we currently have.
What’s it like having 5 kiddos?
Tiring? Yes Draining? Yes Busy? Yes
However, I get 5 times the love, 5 times of all the “firsts”, 5 times hugs and kisses, homemade crafts, and “I love you’s”.
I have also learned TONS of life lessons through my kiddos- One of the biggest is acceptance. You see, my kids love me for ME. Even if I haven’t showered, have no makeup on, cannot fit in my skinny jeans. Even if I lose my cool and raise my voice more than I would like to admit. My kiddos care less about my imperfections.
As we celebrate mother’s day, I want you to know you are worthy of celebration even if you feel inadequate.
Hebrews 10:12, 14, KJV
But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God…For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
Don’t beat yourself up, momma. YOU ARE ENOUGH! YOU ARE DOING A GOOD JOB! God has declared you perfect and calls you WORTHY!
God knew what He was doing when He gave THAT child to YOU! God believed you are good enough.So, you should.
And in case you thought otherwise, NONE of us have it all together and know what we are doing half the time!
Are you struggling with self doubt, like you are “less than worthy?” Are you stretched thin and KNOW you need to take better care of YOU? I Peter 5:7 tells us to “Cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you.”
So, let’s do that, Mamas!
In addition, I would LOVE to connect with you, and teach you how to take care of your spirit, soul and body in my Grace Girls Group!
