Do you struggle with the joyful, yet overwhelming job of being a mom? Sometimes, it can be easy to be overcome with mistakes and failures that leave you feeling discouraged. Take heart, because the good news is you’re a better mom than you think. God hasn’t called us to be perfect, but he does want us to be faithful. Faithfulness is falling and getting up again. It’s failing, and trying again. Faithfulness is missing the mark and asking God to help you become a better person through the struggle, and forgiving yourself. Faithfulness is beginning each day and embracing his mercies. It’s digging deeper, standing taller after a fall, gritting your teeth and knowing you have a power within you greater than your enemy. Then, standing that enemy up and reclaiming your territory. It’s not about getting it right every time. It’s seeking his face, loving your children, obeying God’s word and running the race. You can’t be perfect, but you can be faithful.
