God Promises Moms These Wonderful Things

(Inside: God promises moms these beautiful, wonderful things. He doesn’t promise that everything will go smoothly. He promises more…)

God doesn’t promise that our mom-journeys will be smooth

He doesn’t promise that if our tweens study the lines, practice the vocals, take the lessons, and go the extra mile, they will get the part on stage.

He doesn’t promise that our teens are always going to “like us.” Yes, they love us, need us, but there might be seasons when summiting K2 might feel easier than the relationship.

He doesn’t promise that our kid’s friendships will be cake. Interacting with peers can be good then fine then excruciatingly hard and everything sandwiched between.

He doesn’t promise that our learners will find graphing parabolas, diagramming sentences, and school curriculum awesome. They just might not.

He doesn’t promise that outside-our-home people and situations will be the best influence on our kids.

Or that our bigs will always make the “responsible choice.”

Or try super hard.

Or care in the way we want them to.

He doesn’t promise that as moms hang through this roller coaster ride, we will say the perfect thing, do exactly what’s needed to meet our kids’ needs, and, through it all, keep our own swirling parenting emotions in check.

Nope.

He just doesn’t.
Better enjoy beautiful, ordinary mom life with these find peace cards.

But instead, God promises moms…

That he KNOWS us. Our inmost fears, hearts longings, and the number of every single unwelcome grey hair.

He LOVES us. With unfathomable width and depth and abundance, dance over you with singing, agape love.

He’s FOR us. Working in our lives, opening and closing doors, providing people, unearthing resources, showering wisdom, and revealing direction for us.

He WALKS with us. Never sleep, never take a break, behind, before, and next to us.

He TALKS with us. Through people, situations, scripture, a feeling deep in our gut, a stirring in our heart, his voice hovers.

That is what he promises.

Our parenting paths are not going to be flawless; they might even be the opposite of that. But, our God – our loving, wise, kind, and generous God – will be with us. Every single step of the way.
