Anyone ever found yourself on the verge of tears while chaos reigns around you or felt like the world is falling apart around you while all you have the strength to do is sit down and think about how you are failing as a wife, mom, and friend? How am I suppose to be Super Mom when I don't even have time to clean the bathroom in the midst of work, disciplining, cooking, cleaning, washing, and all while I am trying to appear like a calm force within the home.
Super Mom I am not, and that's ok!
Good news! We don't have to a Super Mom! We are called to be faithful followers of Christ! We don't have to be perfect, thanks to the blood of Christ. In fact, in those low moments of complete weakness, then HE is STRONG, Stronger than anything we can imagine here on earth.
Why do we let our thoughts wander to such dark places and let Satan get a stronghold? Can we learn to lean on Him rather than ourselves (we all know how that turns out)? Can we trust him with our families and our lives? I pray I will keep my focus on God during this busy Christmas season and as our life changes dramatically when we bring home our dear boy.
Your prayers are appreciated!
". . . Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Cor. 12:7b-10, NIV)
"For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." (2. Cor. 10:3-5, NIV)
