It’s okay, Imperfect Mama

I’ve laid my head down, feeling exhausted, finally at rest.

” I shouldn’t have yelled at the kids like that.”

” It’s just a house…why do I get so angry about a messy house? Why do I take it out on the kids?”

” I should’ve made Susie go and brush her teeth instead of letting her win and go on to bed.”

” I wonder if they’ll look back at their childhood and think I was a good mom..or a mom who nagged constantly about a dirty house rather than sitting and cuddling with them?”

Hmmm…doesn’t seem very restful. 

As a matter, these thoughts keep me pretty exhausted even when my body is at rest.

We, as mothers, beat ourselves up every day.

10 Scriptures for the overwhelmed and stressed out Mama

Do you ever have those days where you feel like you are the worst mother EVER!?!
Did you yell at your kids today?
Did you get irritable with them when they repeated “mommy, mommy” over and over again, only to tell you that they love you? (ohhh, that one hurts)
Did you pretend like you didn’t see something that you really saw, but you finally got a moment to yourself with a Snickers bar?
Yeah, I’ve been there…
And I know how you feel.
Having kids is a hard job- it is not for the feeble.
But God gave us women the strength to keep doing what we do with little complaint (most days- we aren’t perfect).
However, we sometimes forget to tap into that strength, and the source of that strength…
Source of strength?
Yep, you guessed it…
God Himself is THE source of strength!
