One of the greatest advantages about my children always being with me is the ability to mold their hearts when situations arise. In fact, it was one of the many reasons I decided to start homeschooling all our children. Many times we hear this and think wow that mom has it all together. What a wonderful experience that must be. What many of us don’t know it that every home has that one heart that we are certain is unmoldable. In fact, it is the best-kept secret.
No one wants to admit that they have a heart in their very home that they can not reach despite the endless efforts. We don’t want to say that they feel as though they are failing in the motherhood department almost every single day because they feel as though they have been defeated by that one child. No one wants to admit that they are fearful for that little heart and are simply at a loss as to what to do. Even more so in a world where it seems that everyone has their lives so put together and perfect (thanks, social media).
The fact is that ever single day moms all over the world, great Christian mothers go to bed in tears. Worried that they are failing. They feel as though they are failing that young heart and it is because of that fact those mothers are going to bed broken-hearted.
Yet, every morning we wake up, slap a smile on and try again. After all, if we don’t step in and fight the battle for that young heart who will…….
God made us their mother for a reason.
God is walking with us on this journey.
God will carry us when this walk gets too hard.
All we ever have to do is to remember to seek Him first.
Cling to Him always.
Commit His truths to heart and memory.
Pray to Him endlessly.
Motherhood isn’t easy. It was never supposed to be easy. Yet, we have to stay strong and stand firm that God is always there. Our efforts are not without merit and we will all get through this. And the more we work to mold that unmoldable heart know that…….
You Are Not Alone.
