Will they ever grow?
The children and I planted some seeds a few weeks ago. The whole "adventure" was very exciting for them.
Every morning.. all day, I would find them perched over the seeds to see if they had sprouted.
Water, sun, and much love, I told my children.. and their seeds would soon grow..
Every day... they asked me...
"Will they ever grow?
Moms feel this way don't they..
Every day, we wonder, will this be the way it is forever?
Moms get lonely. Moms get discouraged, and moms are too hard on themselves.
Remedy,,, It is probably like the Water, sun and much love..
It seems simple, but it is really more complex than that, isn't it!
Just as it looks easy for that little seed to sprout,, God has an intricate plan and hand in the growth and development of each seed.
When other mom's hurt.. I hurt. Hurt - Sad, lonely, discouraged, hopeless, and resigned to failure.
Can you share in this also?
I told a friend earlier that family life is like a Teeter- Totter...The LORD is the crux in the middle that keeps the balance on each side..
and like a teeter - totter, if a child suddenly gets off of one side of the teeter-totter, then it is way off balance, and someone on the other side falls off and gets hurt.
Family life ( Motherhood ) can only stay balanced with the Lord in the middle, and with PRIORITIES on each side, and when those are off balance in life, then someone gets "hurt."
Feel this way?
Priorities for the married mom, should look like this:
1.)Relationship with the Lord
Sometimes moms put their children first before the first two, and all too often, this becomes a life habit without even realizing that it has happend.
Children need to see and know that Mom and Dad love each other FIRST and MORE than them.
Sound crazy ? It is Biblical. It takes effort, but it is sooo rewarding.
Will life ever change from the monotony of every day life for the mom that has lost her JOY in every day?
Priorotize and find the teeter - totter of life to be more balanced 1st.
Tomorrow, I will post some ideas to make your spouse your #1 priority..
Hang in there moms - there is hope for the High- Calling of Motherhood and the waves of discouragement that comes your way.
See you tomorrow,, and bring your ideas to share!
