Have you seen this phrase going around on social media?
“I have been perfectly blessed and assigned by God to be the mom my kids need.”
I’m not sure where it originated, but I cringe almost every time I read it. I know it’s meant to encourage and strengthen. I know that the sentiment is true. More often than not, though, my heart responds with a spirit of defeat rather than victory.
I don’t usually feel like I’m capable of this parenting process I’m in the middle of.
I often feel like an inadequate mother.
Most days I feel like giving up. Not just every once in a while . . . most days!
If you’ve ever felt the same way, please join me at Busy Being Blessed where I’m privileged to share three truths from the life of Jesus’ mother, Mary that will give hope to every imperfect, inadequate mother.
This post is part of the Imperfect Moms Confessional Series where you’ll find lots of inadequate mothers being real and encouraging one another to live in grace.
