Overwhelmed By Motherhood?

Do you ever find that the job of being a mother is just too overwhelming? Do you listen to Satan's lies telling you that you just do not measure up?





Being a mom is a lot of work. Luckily, it is a job that we were not expected to take on by ourselves.

When I have times that I feel like I just do not measure up or that I start to listen to Satan's lies, I know that I can seek the Lord for His help.

Lies:


  • "I should be in control." -- Philippians 4:13
  • "My children give me my worth." -- Ephesians 3:17-18
  • "My husband completes me." -- 1 John 3:1


Biblical Truths:


1. Philippians 4:13 NIV I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.

2. Ephesians 3:17-18 NIV so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,

3. 1 John 3:1 NIV See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.




Psalm 25:4-5 NIV Show me your ways, Lord , teach me your paths.  Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

Dear Father, thank You for always being there. Father, I confess that in my weakness, I will listen to the lies that Satan pours into my head. Please forgive me. Father, please show me Your ways and teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth for You, Father, are my Savior. My hope is in You all day long. Thank You for all that You have done. In Jesus' name, Amen.
