I’ve recently been blessed by some tremendously challenging blog posts on motherhood. And since I couldn’t possibly say it as well as these ladies have, I’m compiling the links here for you to check out “in your spare time” or when you need it most.
Motherhood provides you with an opportunity to lay down the things that you cannot keep on behalf of the people that you cannot lose. They are eternal souls, they are your children, they are your mission field.
Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.
When you are in the midst of bottles and binkies and spit up and tantrums and sleepless nights – do not let the enemy whisper in your ear – “this is too much.” Lean on Jesus and thank God for giving you SO much! When the world says, you are too young. Remember Mary was young. When the world says, you are too old. Remember Sarah was old. When the world says, you don’t know what you are doing. Remember Eve – who had no role models at all…she just walked with the King.
