Lately, I’ve heard a lot of talk on on the seasons of motherhood and how it gets easier. Oh, how I want to believe it is true. But, seeing how I’m 14 years into it, I think that may be wishful thinking. I’ve come to the realization, motherhood does not get easier.
It may look different.
But easy? No, it does not get any easier.
- Is it easier to hold a crying baby or pray over a crying teen who has made a bad choice?
- Is it is easier to never leave the house with sick kids or to see your kids leave the house to go to college?
We are moms.
We are not called to easy.
We are called to love.
We are called to be faithful.
There is nothing ever easy about being faithful and loving well.
“We do nothing. God does everything. All glory must return to HIm. God has not called me to be successful. He called me to be faithful.” – Mother Teresa
I don’t want to discourage you. But, from the bottom of my heart I want to tell you:
What we need is not life to be easier.
What we need is to lean in deep to the grace He gives.
We need to remember we are first His daughters and cling to Him.
And He is all we really need.
