I’ve been a MOM for over 18 years now.
There’s been moments where I think I’ve got it ALL under control and dare I say..
There’s been days where I’ve thought I know MOST of everything I could know about parenting.
But then there are days that lead into weeks and sometimes even months where I am just at a loss as to what exactly I am doing.
Lately I’ve been torn between being the Mom I know GOD wants me to be and fighting against the Mom the World thinks I should be.
You see I hear the world through other people..
The enemy LOVES to use these comments to whisper doubt and frustration in my head.
And you’d think that I would just TRUST , fall on my knees and pray it all away.
But you see..
Even after 18 years I’ve still got A LOT to learn.
I do eventually fall on my knees and remember to TRUST HIM with all things. It just takes me a little longer to get there.
His plan isn’t for my daughter to go to college. He’s shown us that plainly.
It’s just when I listen to world I get distracted.
I forget that my purpose of being a mom isn’t over because my girls are older and can take care of themselves.
I’m thankful for the past 18 years and all that God has taught me through each and every experience.
But most of all I’m thankful that when I do eventually drop to my knees.. He is always there to teach me something new.
