I love my children with heart-wrenching imperfection. But I have a death-grip on the truth that He is ever-changing me.
So I will run hard after Him. I will choose to do hard things. I will choose challenge over comfort.
My love, patience and mercy have limits. So I will push those limits. And they will grow, by His grace.
I will not waste my time nurturing my regrets. They are worthless and limiting.
I will recognize my mistakes and declare revolution on my failure, pursuing the only One who gives victory.
Like an athlete who spends years training for that one moment of Olympic glory, I will train my knees to bend and my hands to raise every morning in desperate prayer that my children will fall in love with Him too.
I will fight for their faith until they have faith enough to fight for themselves…and others.
This is my Motherhood Declaration.Leave a Comment
