Oh girl! You are doing a great job!! Don’t forget that … don’t stop believing that! There is this terrible lie rolling around your head and your heart. It repeats like a skipped record, “You are not enough.” Call it what it is—NOT TRUE!
Your children did not end up with you by happenstance or chance—God chose YOU to be their mother! That means, YOU are who they need.
Sometimes you’re going to fail. It’s okay, because more often then not you’ll do it right (or at least good enough). Accept the truth you can’t do it all. Choose to do what really matters each day. Some days that might be the laundry—clean underwear does matter, after all. But some days, it won’t.
Don’t think busy moms are better moms. They aren’t! But don’t judge those busy moms, either. Because we never, ever love each other well when we are judging.
You be you. It’s enough.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14
How do you struggle to accept that you are enough?
