When I have the opportunity at the end of the day to look back over all of the things I’ve said and done as a mom, sometimes I wonder why God decided I should be a mother.
My words are harsher than they should be most of the time, my actions don’t always keep my family as my priority, and I fail more times than I succeed it seems to me.
It is in the quiet moments of my nights that I realize how humbling this motherhood journey is for me.
God selected me to be a mother. He created my two little blessings specifically for me.
We must remember that it is not that we *chose* to be a mother. God planned that for us.
We must remember this when we feel inadequate. God created us to be mothers.
This journey can at times be overwhelming, but knowing that God chose us for this life of motherhood…how humbling.
He knew that we could with His strength, help and direction be the exact mother that our little blessings need.
He knew before our journey began that we would fail along the way, yet He still made us mothers.
The knowledge that God KNOWS that I can be exactly what my children need in a mother, ignites a fire inside of me to push myself harder and farther to become that mom.
Our children are our biggest blessings, and they deserve to have the mom God knows we can be. It is only by His design that we are on this journey, and solely by His strength are we able to continue.
So when our days get tough and we feel as though we’ve had enough, may we be humbled when we remember that we were picked out…chosen to be on this journey of motherhood.
