There’s no better time than now to make a commitment to be a better mom.
The words “better mom” will mean different things to different people. For me it will entail more patient mothering.
In my role as mom I especially strive to gently correct my children and discipline without anger.
There are instances where a stern tone is needed but I want to be even more intentional about using my gentle voice more often.
So what am I doing to ensure I reach my goals?
I’m reading my Bible everyday. I read something almost everyday that reminds me of God’s patience with me. After reading I often reflect on my mess ups and how God did not scold me but gently guided me back on track.
I’m allowing my children room to make mistakes. Instead of holding them to a standard of perfection, I’m going to truly stop and evaluate if the did what I asked to the best of ‘their ability’.
I’ll continue to look at my children as assets and not burdens. They are super helpful, kind and loving. They add so much more to my life than they take away but sometimes I forget that.
I’ll be even more prayerful specifically regarding areas where I struggle as a mom.
All in all I’m going to give them my best and let God work out the rest.
I’ll never be a perfect mommy….PERIOD.
What I do want to be is a mommy that pleases God.
For me that means repenting when I’ve missed the mark, rejoicing when I get it right, and praising God for the amazing children and life he’s blessed me with.
If you are struggling as a mommy I want to come along side and pray with you.
This mommy thing can be tough especially when our personal standard is Christ-likeness.
