Sometimes I feel so very weak.
This week has been one of struggle. The enemy has whispered lies over and over again and I’ve been tempted to believe them…
Lies such as “you have no purpose” and “you’re a terrible mom” and “God has left you alone”.
Sometimes in our faith we have to fight for the truth. We have to fight to remain steadfast in the face of an onslaught of lies.
When we feel like giving up and giving in, we have to hold strong and find truth in God’s Word.
The truth is that I am not weak.
I may feel weak, but I am strong because I belong to the Lord and He is my strength.
The truth is that I do have a purpose.
My purpose is to glorify God where I am right now.
My purpose is to glorify God as I serve my husband, my children and my community.
My purpose is to glorify God as I seek steadfastness.
The truth is that I am not a terrible mom.
I am a mom that fails often, but is trusting God’s grace to see me through my failures.
I am trying my best and relying on God to fill the gaps.
I love my children fiercely and want them to see me humbly asking for forgiveness daily. I want them to see me coming to the Lord for my strength. I want them to see me broken before the Lord and completely relying on Him each and every day.
The truth is that God has not left me alone.
He is right here with me.
He is my comforter, my fortress and my strength.
