I don’t usually post on Tuesdays, but this post came across my feed today and convicted me. The kind of conviction that sticks with you, makes you want to grab your kids, grab them and hold on tight. I will admit it. I have had those days when I yell at my kids. Those days are always full of regret. And most often those days are not the days my kids have done something wrong, but are more often the days I have not planned well, I have over-committed myself or have failed to get the rest I need. They are the days I let other people’s schedules dictate mine or allow the pressures and perceived expectations rise above my priorities. I know you have been there. In reality, as moms we will probably all be there again. It’s not o.k. But, just as we grant grace to our children, our heavenly Father grants us grace and gives us the wisdom to know what to do and the strength to do it.
I love the Better Mom blog. I encourage you to follow. I pray this post convicts you too, but more importantly I pray it leads each of us to guard our priorities, our hearts and our thoughts. I pray it leads each of us to be Better Moms.
