Manna For a Mama's Soul

Sometimes I feel like I have NO IDEA what I’m doing as a parent.

I wonder if I’m doing too much of this or not enough of that.

Was I too firm here or too lenient there?

Are they eating the right foods?

Are they learning the right lessons?

Am I doing anything right?

Ahhhh! The list is maddening & it goes on an on.  

But God!

In the midst of the crazy thoughts swirling around in my head, God allows me to witness precious sights like this.

My toddler initiated reading time with her baby sis, & read every book she could find for her. To witness such a simple, yet endearing sight was like the Lord telling me that I’m doing just fine.

As the Holy Spirit begins to flood my mind with God’s precious promises, I am reassured. My girls will be alright because even with my minor (and major) mess-ups, He is right there.

He is right there leading and guiding, teaching and protecting, comforting and loving me and my family. He will never leave me nor forsake me, and He is my strong tower and solid rock!

On a day that I’ve been struggling with some things spiritually (Satan, you are defeated!!!), this sweet, sweet sight was like manna to this mama’s soul. It opened my eyes to the beauty of all the simple, yet marvelous things going on around me, and helped me to soak in the warm embrace of my Father’s unfailing love.

Thank you, thank you Lord. 

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’.                                                                                     Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)

BE BLESSED!!!

  1. YES! Satan is constantly trying to defeat us Mamas, especially when we are raising up Littles to know and love their Heavenly Father! A “mentor mom” with my MOPS group told me this: you are not enough for your kids. If you were, your children would not need Jesus. What an encouragement! It’s okay to not be enough, and we can use it to show our children Jesus. Hugs Mama, and enjoy that manna!
