Today I received the SWEETEST card from my mom. My mom and I were not close growing up, so these sweet gestures are new and greatly treasured.
In it she said she was not expecting me to be such a good mommy, and has learned from watching me that being a mother is the best gift God can give. (Brb, crying 😭) The card included scripture at the very bottom: “God will generously provide all you need.” (NLT)
Or the NKJV version for more context: “God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” -2 Corinthians 9:8
This is where a wave of emotion really swept over me.
Because no, motherhood is not for wimps. And no, I don’t always feel like I’m being a good mom. Sometimes I’m just surviving, scrambling through different ideas, several prayers, and mommy forums for help.
God will always sufficiently supply what I need, so that I can provide for my children what they need from me. And not just to be good, but to provide an abundance of good.
What an incredible God He is.
Motherhood is truly a blessing.
