Isn’t parenthood an interesting thing? I see the worst parts of myself up close…my frustration, impatience, short-fuse, and every other weakness known to man. 🙄 Don’t you just roll your eyes at yourself sometimes because you end up doing exactly what you’re trying to teach your kids NOT to do?! 🤦🏼♀️
BUT, at other times, I see the best parts of myself…those qualities that the Spirit lovingly prompts me to live out…the tenderness, gentleness, patience, encouragement, grace, and unconditional love that I know the Heavenly Father constantly shows me. I’m reminded of the way He’s holding me, comforting and encouraging me, rooting me on, redirecting me, all the while showing such patience to me.
Yeah, motherhood is funny. I see my great need for the Spirit daily. I see the way God is refining me. I see His grace flowing and overflowing in my life. Yep, motherhood is a constant reminder of my need for God, my love for God, and His love for me. ❤️
