Psalm 94:19 When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. NLT
Do you ever have days when you are just hanging by a thread? Nothing has gone right. You drop everything you pick up. The cat threw up in the recliner. Your kid refuses to eat anything but cold Spaghetti-o’s, which you happen to be out of, so you hop in your car to go to the store, and….it won’t crank...because your husband drove it last. All you see on the dashboard is a bright light flashing “E”. Great. Just great. You get out of the car, wham your head on the door when you reach over to pull your screaming child out because she wants Spaghetti-O’s and head back into the house. The damn door is locked. You grabbed your car keys, but not the house keys. You begin to wonder just what else can happen, when you feel your whole side get warm. Your little girl, who was just screaming, smiles up at your so sweetly, and says, “I pee-pee, Mommy.”
I think every Mom alive has had days like this. I’ve even had weeks like this. How in the world my children survived childhood puts a whole new level to the Bible verse, “Except by the Grace of God.”
God, thank You for giving Mommy’s a little extra dose of hope and cheer. There are days when we doubt the job we are doing. Being a Mommy is tough. You keep us strong. Thank You for our Mommy-moments. And thank You for letting our children survive them.
