Balancing Mothering

“Her children arise and call her blessed”

Proverbs 31:28

 

 

It has been said that “to the World you are just a mother, but to your family you are the WORLD!”

It is the month in which we celebrate motherhood. God’s Word in Psalm 127.3 says that “children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him”. In other words, children are a blessing from the Lord and it is a blessing to be a mother. But if the truth be told, some days mothering feels more like a burden than a blessing.

Mothering is not easy, especially in this present day. Mothering involves all-consuming responsibility for helpless new life; years of sacrifice for growing life and never ending support of continued life. Though it is a joy to see your children grow and develop, it can be exhausting. Mother’s must balance caretaking with self care. While we may be the world to our children, they must not become our world, our idol.

How doe we find balance in mothering?

Prioritize time for self renewal

Have a sacred date with God daily. It may be 5 minutes or an hour, but be consistent in

sitting in His presence, talking to and listening to God’s Word for you.

Read Mark 1:35

Read 1 Chronicles 16:11

Practice thought control

God says that as a man thinks in his heart , so is he. Our bodies react to our thoughts. If we

dwell on gossip, negativity and fear, our lives will manifest more of the same.

Read Philippians 4:8

Place your Boundaries

God’s word says let your yes be yes and your no be no. Boundaries help us to define expectations, set limits , show respect so that we can reach our goals. We cannot give our all to everyone and everything, and have some of us leftover for ourselves. Boundaries allow others to grow through their own choices.

Read Matthew 5:37

Read Galatians 6:2-5

 

 

May Every Mother Have a Happy Mother’s day
