God created the world out of nothing, and as long as we are nothing, He can also make something out of us. ~Martin Luther
As the New Year approaches, we can often look back at the last year with analytical eyes, and at the future with new determination to do things different, to have more control, in one way or another.
I hear the weary words of my fellow moms crying out with sadness over what feels like a year of failure with their children, of wanting to be “more”; more present, more gentle, more playful, more active…”more”.
I hear the discouraged words of moms wanting to be “less”, feeling the full weight of the lie that they are “too much”; wanting to be less busy, less distracted, less emotional, less indecisive…”less”.
I hear the broken-hearted words of the wife wanting to be “loved”. To feel passion, to feel heard, to be protected, to be desired…”loved”.
I hear their cries echo in my own heart. My own battle with all of it, my own doubt and pain, and regret. But, then God whispers his amazing truth-truth that sets us free dear girlfriends!
You are “enough”, but not “too much”, you are “loved”, you are perfectly made in the image of God, and He loves you with an everlasting love; and the best part…God is ALWAYS about his business, he is always loving and transforming us into the image of His Son, and that my friends should be the focus of our New Year! To worship The Lord with a thankful heart because he is not through with us yet!
