There’s a brand new website that has just begun titled “The Better Mom“. I am excited to be a part of it NOT because I think I’m a better mom – blak! OH NO – I struggle everyday in my role as a mom – am I doing the right thing? How in the world do I discipline that? Should I just give grace? Am I giving too much grace? Am I good enough, smart enough, spiritual enough, organized enough – will I be enough?
The one verse I cling to on days when I am struggling is Exodus 20:5,6. It says “I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousand of generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.”
Oh ~ I love this promise because I LOVE God so much! And his word says that he shows love to the thousands of generations of those who love him and keep his commands. When I’m not sure if I’m “enough” I remember and believe this truth. He loves me. He loves my children. He will be faithful to us.
So join me today over on The Better Mom – the post is titled “I Live In A Miserable Place.” Come see why it’s so miserable here…
Walk with the King!
