"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come"
Hey Mama! Today, let's embark on a short and sweet journey to explore the art of choosing joy amid the beautiful chaos of motherhood. So, grab a cup of lukewarm coffee, and let's dive in!
Being a mom is like riding a rollercoaster blindfolded, isn't it? It's a whirlwind of dirty diapers, sleepless nights, and endless snack requests. But amidst the chaos, there's a special kind of joy that only moms can experience.
Now, you might be wondering, "Where's the scriptural backing for all this mom talk?" Well, let’s look at Psalm 127:3, where it says, "Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him." Yes, Mama, in the midst of the spilled milk and toddler tantrums, our little ones are truly a gift from above. I know that you know this – but sometimes it’s hard to remember that your motherhood is a calling – and it really, really matters!
However, choosing joy in motherhood is like finding a hidden treasure in a sea of toys. It's those precious moments when your child's laughter fills the room or when they wrap their tiny arms around you with unconditional love. It's finding joy in the little things, like messy art projects and bedtime stories that never seem to end.
Remember, dear moms, in the book of Proverbs, it says, "She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come" (Proverbs 31:25). So, let's embrace our superhero capes, wear our mom badges with pride, and laugh at the days to come, even when the days feel like an endless loop of laundry and chaos.
Choosing joy as a mom means finding humor in the unexpected, like that time your toddler used your lipstick as a crayon, when they declared that broccoli is the enemy, or when they used a sharpie to write their name on the seat of your new car. It's about embracing imperfection and realizing that being a mom doesn't mean having it all together. It's about cherishing the messy, beautiful journey of raising little humans.
Let’s choose joy amidst the chaos of motherhood. Let's cherish the giggles, the scraped knees, and the sweet bedtime hugs. Embrace the messy, embrace the laughter, and remember that you are doing an incredible job.
Your fellow Able Mom,
Dear Lord, thank You for the gift of motherhood and the joy that comes with it. Help us find joy in the midst of the chaos, and may our hearts be filled with gratitude for these precious little ones. Give us strength and laughter on this wild journey, and remind us that we are never alone. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen!
