“Moma”. That’s what my daughter calls me (and how she writes it). It is a blessing to be a mother. Something happens when they hand you your child, a shift in the heart. Suddenly you are helpless, caring for a helpless being. Anything you thought you knew has instantaneously fled you! Being a mother has only strengthened my relationship with Jesus Christ. Without His example, without God’s redeeming grace, without His Spirit living in me, I am nothing. I am definitely a perfectionist! I try to lead that way with my design work, but when it comes to being a mother, I find I quite easily fail. Daily. Fear creeps in, comparison creeps in, inadequacy, yeah we are friends…but then I hear that whisper in my spirit…YOU ARE ENOUGH! YOU are exactly what YOUR child needs!! Not that other mom who works out every day with 3 kids, not the mom who is head of the PTO and full of great ideas, not the mom who makes gourmet meals and kids eat a perfect diet without you begging and pleading with them…YOU. You are who God has chosen to be the care giver this side of Heaven to HIS Child.
I know Mother’s Day can be a deeply sore day for many, many women. Women who have pleaded for a child, women who have given up a child, women who have lost a child, women who did not have a mother, women who had a mother who were absent or harmed them…I know Dear One! This post is for you too! Because as a WOMAN, YOU ARE ENOUGH! You are loved by a God who has counted every tear! Every hurt! And longs to bring peace and comfort to you, with the promise of Salvation! That transcends motherhood!
So no matter how you will spend your day tomorrow, may you be reminded of God’s great love for you as HIS child!!
