Somehow God never leaves us unfulfilled or lacking when we give of ourselves to help another. It’s easy to embrace the joys of motherhood, but when things are tough, resentment can creep in for mamas. You know… not feeling appreciated, your efforts are useless, annoyance with the neediness, or the loss of things you used to enjoy before kids.
I’ve heard God’s gentle reminder myself from time to time….don’t resent the work I’ve given you. Seek Me in all things. God has divinely paired you with your child and will equip you in that calling. Remembering what Jesus endured for our sake can kick resentment out the door pretty quick. “He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed” —Isaiah 53:5
Have a great Mother's Day mamas, you've got a pretty awesome assignment!
